    Default HELP!!Real or Fake ZF4 scope

    Hello,

    I purschased this ZF4 scope from eBay the other night. It was sold to me as a world war 2 scope made between 1943-1945. Anyway some people say that this scope is a fake after I show them pictures. I was told it is more than likely a Czech post war Meopta scope with wear that is artificial The glass is slightly foggy on the scope. I paid 495 for it😅 so I hope itís real. Iím new to G43ís and K43ís so I am just curious. Thanks

    It would seem you are impulse buying. Its good to add original accessories. The price market is not moving that fast
    Slow down get the proper reference books "Hitler's Garand"

    EBay would be the last place I would recommend get a scope or mount from
    Several original sets were sold here by fellow members

    The book cost almost half of what the scope cost.
    OP did good investing towards the scope. Sometimes you gamble and win. Sometimes.

    If he posts hey look at this scope maybe somebody else sees it and buys it from under him.lnand he loses with regrets.
    If he gambles and orders, then quickly finds out it's not as advertised he can dispute it with the seller.

    Can't go wrong with acquiring on the forum. A clear 1st choice if a ailable
