I can't find a price guide for old scopes. Does anyone have a value for a Leupold Mountaineer 4x w/ detacho rings & peep sight bases in very good to excelent condition about 50 years old? Thanks for any help.
Wulfman; Stroebel's "Old Scopes" is an excellant reference. Rings and bases 50-100 bucks and the scope probably 75 to 125 off the top of my head. I collect old Leupold scopes, bases and rings as I use them on my Pre-64 Model 70's. The Mountaineer was after the Pioneer so probably mid 50's as a starter. Have gotten many off sleazebay at below Stroebel costs. Leupold holds up and the glass is always perfect. What are the base numbers? Ring size?
I have a 1955 vintage model 70 featherweight in 270win that has a mountaineer scope that was bought in 1957, still clear and looks great. I got the gun from the orginal owner, and the scope has never been sent back to the factory. For what it's worth. W.D.
According to Stroebel there is no #202 the #308 is for a Savage 99 and the corresponding front # is 206. The proper bases for the 740 are #210 front and #317 rear. Bases are $25-50 /set and rings are 25-50/set. Have seen them go for more on sleazebay at times. Hope this helps.
