    My dad got this German ajack scope during WWII. (He landed at Utah Beach) The only identifying marks are the name "Ajack" and the serial # next to the elevation wheel. Can anyone give me any information about this scope. Thanks If you want more pictures, I"ll post them

    Knowing nothing about anything above, I could not help but notice the obvious quality of the metal work, even in the slightly out of focus photo - beautifull! I like anything well made, and they (hell, nobody) makes them like that any more, regretfully.

    Thanks for the info !!! I know my dad brought the scope home after the war. Its not a very powerful scope 2x,or 3x at the most, but the optics are clear and sharp.
