    Is that a scope you have in your pocket?

    6X Zeiss Zielsechs were used with SSR , LOW TURRET , LSR and possibly (HIGH TURRET although I have never seen a legitimate/original example) .
    6x Ziel Dialyt with SS Objective Mount Rifles
    6X Pre War Ajack Scopes on Sauer SSR

    Yes, as Dave pointed out. Some were used but these are hard to find. I am yet to see a confirmed legit example of a 8x scope.

    Thanks Dave, do you know if there is any Oigee Berlin 6x scope used during war with a low turret mount?

    Short addendum: for the Jägerspende scopes they requested in particular:
    1. Hensoldt Söhne, Wetzlar, 4- und 6-fache Vergrößerung, Mittelrohrdurchmesser 22 u. 26,5mm
    2. Karl Zeiss, Jena, 4- und 6-fache Vergrößerung, Mittelrohrdurchmesser 26,5mm
    3. Karl Kahles, Wien, 4 fache Vergrößerung, Mittelrohrdurchmesser 27mm
    4. A.Jackenroll, Berlin, 4- und 6-fache Vergrößerung, Mittelrohrdurchmesser 22 u. 26,5mm


    Technically therefore any 6x scope by Hensoldt, Zeiss or Ajack of 22 or 26,5mm tube could had been used on SSR mount that was manufactured up to 9th November 1942.

    This therefore would also outrule the Oigee Berlin scope the OP was asking upon.

    Thanks for the reply. So is that means all so called 'original matching' sniper k98 with a Oigee Berlin 6x is a fake (scope was installed later, not originally on) sniper k98? My apology if the question is too silly, just new to the k98 field so don't have much knowledge on those. But I'd like to collect one legit piece if I could. :D

    Well, theoretically a K98k can be all matching and original, but carry a wrong Oigee scope. Generally however if it already has a wrong scope there are more things to worry upon too..
