I have a couple of those. Nowt wrong ith them for ‘60’s Airguns. They fetch £5 - £10 at airgun fayres if you are lucky.

Will keep it for the nostalgia. I it was originally on an Airsporter.

Definately worth keeping to "complete" the rifle. Sometimes the actual £ value means nothing but worth it's history value.

Definitely. That’s why I keep mine. 
I use one on a Merlin.

I also have a couple of the first BSA Elliot Optical 2x plastic scopes as originally fitted to Meteor Mk.1 and the first Airsporter Mk2. 
And a BSA Mk 2 scope with adjustment in the mounts as fitted to Merlins. All pathetic by todays standards, of course, but ‘state of the art’ in the airgun world of the early ‘60’s.

I have two of these both  4x20 , at the moment only one is being used. Mounted on a Webley Ranger.

Yours looks like a 4x20?

The other is waiting for a rifle!

These have the ' sliding block' mounts that are particularly useful for older BSA's and other rifles with short scope rails, as plenty of eye relief is available.

Although a basic scope, are quite adequate if you are realistic with range 15 mt and under maybe 20 max if you're eyesight is up to it!

Only problem I find is under some light conditions cross hairs can appear faint.

But overall good accuracy can be achieved and are an excellent addition to older rifles.

Cheers.
