The telescope can be taken off and the globe sight fitted into the front mount. Overall I would rate this Scope as excellent and 98% condition on the finish. You may be surprised with what Weaver can concoct with the fundamental basics that make good scopes an excellent pair of eyes. Thanks for looking and have a great day! They are great also though I don't think that it is possible theoretically to seal them up as tight against water damage. They have even been mounted on a M2. It's on a Cooey M60 with Weaver rings and base. You can also send them one of your old scopes and have them overhaul it and put the reticle of your choice.
Shows some wear and pitting in the metal but all seems to be in tact. My only complaint with the new Weavers is the finish. Ring mounts in the size are seen fitted to vintage Winchester 61 and 63 rifles and others that have the grooved receiver. Overall a nice vintage Weaver scope! This Scope can be used as a range finder with following instructions: Look through the scope. If you are looking for a good Weaver, try to find one that was made in El Paso Texas. My little test was this: I fired a shot on a 100-yard bullseye then elevated the rear mount to its 300-yard setting and fired a shot on the pig silhouette.
This scope will handle any level of recoil Savage 99 is a perfect match, also marlin 444 or 45-70; Remington 14 141 740 or Winchester 70, 88 or 100; if you want to match the year of condition. I buy and sell a lot of vintage rifle scopes and this is the nicest J4 I have ever seen. Great condition for a rifle scope that is around 66 years old. Scuff marks, missing finish, surface rust found, and there is paint bleeding found to the cross hairs which may be cracks but we are not sure of this; this item may be missing parts, including an eyepiece. Wayne Really enjoying this thread. For the age of this scope everything. Weaver designed and made all his own tooling and did all the manufacturing work for his scopes on-site.
Some surface rust on the tube. Please let me know if you have any questions. I even collect the vintage rings. It comes with the orginal high mount scope rings and base. Just don't care for it. It's from the late sixties, early seventies. His first shop was on Main and Campbell streets.
Very clear sight with tight smooth movement. Maybe it's nostalgia, growing up as I did when those El Paso Weavers were almost standard issue on so many guns in that era. For the guns of that time, some of the mounts were intrusive as far as having to remove wood or alter metal to get their mounts in place.

In 1933 Weaver and two helpers loaded a truck and moved the shop to El Paso, Texas. The fixed power scopes are better than the variable because Weaver used plastic inside them even in the 50's.
