These two are not for sale, but give a bit of perspective with relation to a M70. Mounted is a Zeiss Diavari 3-9x; above is a S&B Klassik 6x. Both are 1" tubes. The S&B is 42mm while the Zeiss is 36mm.
The short length of the rear tube wouldn't provide any additional rearward mounting benefit versus other options.
I think the best options thus far point to the S&B 1" 6x Klassik or barring that, a Swarovski Z3 3-9x36. Certainly open to other options also, but I've not yet found anyone offering a new old stock or lightly used on here on AH.
I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
