Description: Excellent Condition World War II U.S.M.C. Unertl Sniper Scope with Mounts and Scope Can

Excellent condition example of an original WWII, USMC issue Unertl Sniper Scope. These scopes were manufactured by John Unertl; in 1941 he received a contract to supply these to the USMC for use on Springfield Armory M1903 National Match rifles, modified to sniper rifles by USMC or Navy armorers. These rifles were simply designated as a US M1903A1 Sniper and were used during WWII and again throughout the Korean War. These scopes were still in use with the Marines in Vietnam, used on Match Grade Winchester Model 70 rifles.

There were approximately 2,500-2,600 of these scopes made in total with this example being a very late production scope that remains in excellent condition. The rear of the scope tube is marked "J. Unertl/ USMC-SNIPER/2477" and it has the correct "8" marked on top of the rear ring indicating that it is an "8" power magnification. This scope is accompanied with an original WWII issue scope can with a domed twist on cap. The outside has a green painted type of finish with its original canvas strap and belt loop attached to the side of the can. This rare scope is complete with the original Unertl scope mounts.

The scope is in excellent condition, with 99% of its original blue finish overall with no visible wear anywhere, it is complete with the original screw on end caps. The mounts retain almost all of their thinning blackened finish, being thinest on the adjustment knobs. The optics are crystal clear. The can retains almost all of its original green colored finish with a witness mark added to show where to turn the can lid for removal. A super rare late WWII USMC issue Unertl sniper scope.
