WTK value of Karl Kaps Model 1

I am thinking of parting with my Karl Kaps (Hensoldt-type) Model 1 and was wondering what these might go for nowadays. It came with an HK Claw mount that I got rid of and now sits on an Argy Stanag mount. Only bad on it is I think the grease seal inside may have deteriorated, and it has a few dings in the finish, but the scope works great and elevation and windage adjustments do their thing. Thanks for your help!

Where are you located in Central Texas? You looking for any trades?

Mount is worth $75 last time I checked. Scope price varies as it is less desirable first gen and Kapps, not Hendsolt. Plus it's missing the caps.

Iíve yet to have one with caps.

Iíve found dozens of Hensoldts but only two or three Kapps. Same scope. Iíd rather have a Kapps.

Value Iím guessing $450 to $500 including the mount.
