Just to clear up some misinformation about B&L


"In 1945 B&L stopped supplying lenses to Lyman and in 1949 started manufacturing and marketing scopes of its own
design. With extensive background in optics and design, the company was soon producing a premier line
of straight and variable power rifle scopes.
In 1950 there were three low power scopes offered:
the 2.5X Baltur, 4x Balfor and the 2.5-4X Balvar 4. All
were 1 inch tube scopes with straight objectives and
1.34 inch ocular lenses to improve field of view. The
mid-50s saw the introduction of the 6X Balsix, 8X Baleight, 2.5-8X Balvar 8 and 6-24X Balvar 24."

Thank you. Which goes to show that one cannot believe all they read on the internet.

If not a Balvar, how about a vintage German scope as would be fitting for a Mauser? I don't know much about them, but an old Zeiss would be pretty cool.

For a while, I was buying and trading American scopes, and I really was amazed at the variety out there.

A copy of Stroeble's book(s) is pretty darn handy, though the prices will seem a bit optimistic in today's world.

An older Weaver "T" series might work. Several power choices available and not horribly priced.
