I find myself in possesson of a Canadian Leitz C1 sniper scope mount for the C1A1 rifle. I'd like to find the scope for it, but understand that fewer than 2,000 were ever made and that they were never surplused. If anyone hears of such a scope for sale, I'd like to hear about it. Thanks!

Would anyone care to hazard a guess as to the value of such a mount?

$5k with a free parts kit is my guess.

Ben probably has a better idea though.

Good Luck.

I have a cover with the mount piece ground off. Does that count?

Tankdriver - Yes your modern mount counts :)

Goodorbit - Yes your Canadian mount counts. :)

What is the value of a complete Leitz Scope/mount/container etc. ?

The cover/mount is the hard part. More scopes survive than correct covers.

Which takes me right back to my original question: Anybody know where I can get the scope?

Value: I currently know of 2 complete scope sets for sale, both I am planning to buy, each is $1500.

Scope only, never seen one for sale by itself.
