    "Ziel" is German for "target". And "Zeil" is not a German word at all, like someone wrote "tagret" instead of "target". I guess you now understand what he meant...

    Did he? Or is the scope just a very poor fake?
    BTW: he should go to a skilled gunsmith, not to Bubba where he has been before!

    Iím out of town at the moment so I havenít had a chance to check the spelling. Iíll post a picture of it when I get home. Unfortunately the scope had soldered on double claw mounts and it was going onto high turret mounts.

    Lot's of luck
    Thanks for the help. I messaged him but havenít heard anything back as of yet.

    or

    If it is marked zeilsechs, throw it into your neighbor's back yard and watch him going over it with his lawn mower! At least you might have some fun watching him.
    If it is marked Zielsechs, it might be worth restoring.
    Thanks
    Itís marked Zielsechs so i think itís worth restoring
