I had this vintage Weaver V4.5 scope completely gone through and rebuilt by Iron Sight on 9/20/17. Paperwork included. The interior is like new. They repaired / replaced the variable power erector cell, cleaned all lenses, purged with nitrogen, checked the power ring through all ranges of the power between 1.5 - 4.5, checked windage and elevation, set parallax at 100 yards and replaced both turrett caps.
For those of you unfamiliar with the V4.5 - it's a steel body scope - not aluminum. The finish is blued. The bluing is in good condition on the main tube, but shows some wear on the bell in some places. I've cleaned up the exterior as well since getting it back, so it actually looks a little better than the pics.
Looking for $160, or trade for a Heritage Rough Rider pistol, Ruger 10/22, Encore or Contender barrels, or ??? Would prefer to deal face to face in San Antonio or surrounding area, although I do make trips up to Buda periodically about once a month, so I could meet someone there.
Looks perfect on firearms such as a Ruger Mini-14, AR-15's, Lever Actions, etc... I was going to put it back on my Mini-14, but I sold the Mini before it returned.
All the best,
