    I have no idea what the blazes this thing is. I found it in an old fiber glass radio box. I am sure it is a scope of some sort, but I am at a loss as what it would fit. It appears as if it may fit a rail system but really I do not know.

    Thinking more about it, it must be a scope or sighting device of some sort. The last photo is taken looking through the eyepiece, note the graduations in the center of the glass, these are not scratches, but are graduations.

    Once again, I have somehing I know nothing about.... WOW this is happening too often lately.

    No idea what it is but be careful, is that a radiation sign or sticker on it? Brian

    Yeah it sure looks like it is. I suspect this is a low light optic of some sort. Doesn't seem to magnify anything really.

    Cliff, do both you and the scope now 'glow in the dark'?

    Maybe it's that one elusive piece that Kim Jun Un is looking for to complete his mighty boom firecracker?

    I dont think its army, the eyepiece is too small for a rifle, it looks like a transit sight for survey.
