Please ask me any questions you may have before bidding. You are only receiving what is pictured.
You are bidding on a Unertl 100 MM Team. These were designed by Unertl Optical specifically for the coaches of shooting teams are are built very tough. If you have never seen one of these please do some research before buying. This is a very large spotting scope and it is very heavy and not for carrying around in a backpack. It is about 31 inches long and weighs about 30lbs.
This particular scope has some very cool history as it was used by the Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU). The first way you can tell is the color it has been painted, this light orange yellow color can be seen on other examples of scopes previously and currently used by them. One of the lenses was engraved US AMU for United States Army Marksmanship Unit and can be seen in one of the pictures. There is also a valve mounted near the eyepiece that was also pictured. Having talked to coaches from military shooting teams that used these it was discovered they added those valves in order to fill the scope with nitrogen to prevent the lenses from fogging during matches. The scope is not sealed like modern scopes however so the nitrogen would only last about half a day, hence the valve to add more. You will not see any civilian scopes 100 MM Team scopes with this valve.
This scope is in very good condition considering it was not only heavily used by a military shooting team but is also about 40 years old. The serial number 110 indicates it was one of the early scopes. I believe it was actually the 10th one made because Unertl usually started at 100 or 1000. No way to prove that fact though as they are long out of business.
The only real defect is one of the front lenses has some chipping on the inside. It was probably done during maintenance at one point in the last 40 years. This is pictured in the photos and DOES NOT effect the sight picture as seen in example photos from each of the lenses.
Focus functions smoothly as push and pull to focus or turn clockwise or counter clockwise to focus.
Sunshade extends and retracts smoothly
Front and rear lens caps are included and in good shape as pictures.
Comes with 15x, 24x, and 32x interchangeable lenses
