    They're good scopes, and look right on a antique .22.
    You did good, but its one of those deals where if you're not in the scope selling business, it's hard to get much for it on resale.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes. However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Never pick a fight with old people. If they don't think they can win, they'll kill you.

    It's a three dollar scope that would cost you six bucks to ship. Put it on an old .22 single shot or something. It would be "period correct" on an old Stevens single shot or something like that. I used to buy those kind of scopes when I was a kid and they were around ten bucks or less new...but that was a very long time ago. I remember putting one on a brand new Marlin single shot back in the mid sixties and the gun was eighteen dollars brand new at the store.

    I still pick up Weaver "D" series scopes to complete the older .22 rifles that come my way. Their smaller tube diameter makes them look just right on a .22.

    im not a big fan of old weavers or any old scope. More then half of them I see are yellowed or lost there gas seal and fog and if they haven't yet are just trouble waiting to happen. Ive even had old leupolds that seals have dried up and they lost there gas. Not to be the naysayer here but I wouldn't waste my time writing a check for one and if I got it for free it would either sit in the junk box or at best be put on a cheap 22.

    It's likely worth $3. I have it's 4X little brother on an old Winchester 77. I used to be able to shoot a fly on the board fence at about 25' as a kid.

    You don’t mean you shot them after they landed and were sitting still I Hope. That not very sporting, you’re supposed to take ‘em on the wing as they come in to land! (credit to Jed Clampett, a Beverly Hillbillies show in the 1st couple seasons.)

    I had a D6 on my 22 rf, didn't really like the 6x magnification, so I replaced with V22. Nice little scope, but I wish it had a 1" tube.
