Got this in a couple of weeks ago.

Image

It's a Glenfield 200-B 4 X scope. Mostly japanned brass except for the turret caps, ocular "recoil" ring, and the mount. Mount is steel and a direct copy of the old Mossberg 4-M series mount. That's actually a thread-in "sunshade" on the objective end. At a 15 mm objective diameter, it ain't all that bright. Optics are clear though, and the tube was nitrogen filled. Made in Japan, of course. It is quite similar to the rimfire scopes Bushnell was importing in the late 50's, very early 60's.

Image

Roll stamp detail on the ocular bell. These scopes were packaged with several different Marlin Glenfield rimfire rifles- mostly the single shot Y series, and the venerable old original Glenfield model 60 semi-auto.
Due to U.S. tax regulations, these were not factory mounted. The scope was packaged in it's own box, and included in the rifle box with the rifle.

Image

Here it is next to a Marlin 400-A scope- which was likely packaged as above with a 336 Marlin...

Image

A safe queen, it sure ain't. :mrgreen: It was definitely made for shooting. Shot with my 2100/13 conversion in .177....

I am tickled more than mentionable with this acquisition- just as much fun as the old steel tube Weaver rimfire scopes I get such a kick out of.

Glad it made it through and got to you fine! Looks like it knows how to hit the target!
