Anyone recognize these markings. They are the only ones I can see.
Been looking around the web but not seeing anything.

I'm curious myself but I found nothing. Any idea of age?

It's been mounted on a 1917 sporterized Eddystone that was my Grandmothers hunting rifle.
I remember seeing it on there in the late 70's, early 80's

1" tube and a plain reticle. Gloss black finish like many of the older scopes have.

I do not know. But I have seen that marking before somewhere. Guessing it is an early predecessor to European maker. Interesting.

For some weird reason "Weaver" is stuck in my head.

does it have any type of marking (may be hard to see) under the turrents (base of scope) or on the bottom of the tube near the ocular end?

hard to see as in a gloss black ink on a matte black tube..


I googled GT optics and got a hit for a modern scope brand, but not sure if they are related or not,

nothing close on Trans Optic or Trans GT optic,


I would guess an off brand Asian made scope, (yes, capt obvious type guess,,,,)

Powermad, any chance we can get a pic of the whole scope? Seeing the overall shape and turret size may help. Also, maybe remove the turret caps and see if there's anything in there that might be a clue. Kinda fun trying to figure out stuff like this.

Curiosity kind of makes me want to post it on optic forums elsewhere.

No other markings unless they happen to be under the rings.
