    I have a 1960 made 243, with a heavy bofors barrel, I'm looking for a period correct, or close to the same era scope. Any thoughts or recommendations?
    Thanks In advance.

    Search for 1960's era Weaver, Leupold, Redfield, Bausch & Lomb to name a few.

    Why not Pecar scopes, said the European.:)
    Who, by a coincidence have a couple for sale and more in the pipeline.;):D

    German quality and VERY reliable and have good quality lenses.

    Not as known in the US as Zeiss or Schmidt&Bender or Swarovski.

    Available in 22mm or 7/8” & 1” and 26mm. Steel or aluminium tubes.

    Here’s a pic from a 1960’s Swedish ad for the then Swedish importer, Calic AB.
