From an estate sale, we have here a genuine old M84 sniper scope for, I gather, the M1D garand sniper rifle. Serial number is 27386. There's surface rust on the exterior, except two bands apparently where it was mounted. I'm far from an expert on these things, but those areas where it was mounted aren't where the original mount would be, so I guess it was mounted to some other rifle for a time. This is the genuine article, and not a reproduction. You can check out this thread: http://www.jouster.com/forums/showthread.php?18348-I-need-some-help-with-a-M84-Scope for a very thorough discussion of the finer points of ditinguishing real from repro scopes, and this one meets it all including incused numbers and correct milling marks on the block. Plus who would make a repro scope and age it with rust anyway? Optics are clear, with a few tiny flecks. The photo looking through the tube didn't catch them all, but they're all very small. I gather there are sometimes 'lottery marks' on the block, this one does not have those. So it was obtained some other way apparently. So anyway, there it is, feel free to ask questions or for more detail photos. Weight 1.1 lbs (Before packaging) Items ship from zip code 68512 in the U.S. Shipping costs quoted are to the continental states only, anywhere else will be more. Payment is expected within 10 days. Otherwise I reserve the right to file for non-paying bidder,and re-list the item. SHIPPING-USPS: Please note that I am NOT responsible for the time the post office takes to deliver the package. Tracking numbers will show up in the 'order details' section once I ship the item. SHIPPING-"OTHER": If the shipping is 'Other' then it is Fedex. Fedex does NOT ship to PO boxes, so please provide a "real" address. SHIPPING-COMBINED: I always do my best to combine multiple wins to save on shipping. I make full use of USPS flat rate boxes wherever possible, and will only charge you for one box if I can fit multiple wins in the same box. If you win more than one auction I will send you a new quote with new shipping. Also, I am happy to hold items for you if you plan on buying many items from me over time, in order to combine their shipping. This is at my discretion, for buyers with dodgy or low feedback. Contact me for details. FOREIGN BIDDERS: For the customs paperwork hassle, Canadians are charged an extra $3. All other foreign buyers are charged an extra $5. I am happy to send you a quote during the auction if you want to know how much it will cost. Items are declared as "Other: ebay". I will NOT mark them as 'gift'. I DO NOT under-declare item value on the invoice. Do not ask. SHIPPING - PACKING: I take packaging seriously. I know how fragile cast iron is. I use newspaper for small items, and packing peanuts only for very light items. I use a variety of bubble wrap and peanut-packs for most mid-size items. I get this stuff from local industry that just throw them away otherwise. Heavy items will be packaged using solid styrofoam block. It is very rare for the items I pack to be broken, as my feedback should attest. I do not notify the winner of when a package is shipped, unless they ask me to, because I just don't have time to notify everyone, and 95% of people never ask. LOCAL PICKUP: Local pickup is great! Especially on those large items. I can be flexible with scheduling - just ask! Powered by eBay Turbo ListerThe free listing tool. List your items fast and easy and manage your active items.
