Hello everyone,
I have been offered this scope, and I would like to know firstly is it original? Secondly, would it have been used on a K98k, if so, what type of mount? Finally, if original, what would be the value of a scope like this?

No numbers on elevation dial, the DOW marking looks fake and tube looks refinished and re-blued. I'd say it's not good but there are many other members that have more experience with these type of scopes. Hopefully they will comment.

the scope has been scrubbed and remarked.
the scope is not even a Opticotechna scope.the Opticotechna scope of this style used 4 screws to attach the elevation housing.this is on both the prewar and postwar versions.
this scope uses 3 screws to attach the elevation housing.it is a Srb a Stys Lovec 4x or MEOPTA Lovec 4x scope.
also the elevation housing is on backwards.the knob clamping screw is always at the back on this scope.
i have never seen a real scope of this type with the dow code.only scopes i have seen with the dow code are the ZF4 and type with the rotating elevation ring.
