Collectible military surplus optics are an end result of a good military that aims to provide the very best equipment for their soldiers so that they can complete their mission and return to base safely. This includes everything from padded and insolated shoes, rugged and dependable weapons to precise military grade optics and more. Since militaries order optics for rifles, night vision, binoculars and monoculars in the thousands, many of them are used to the limits of their ability, some are ruined and some, when newer models arrive, are send to military surplus depots to be stored for emergency use or sold to other militaries or to the civilian market. These military surplus optics are highly collectible. The standards that the military uses are in general superior to the civilian standards of optics, hence allowing the user a more precise and exact use. It is thanks to this MIL-STD (military standard) of optics that many civilian users such as hunters and shooting enthusiasts prefer military optics. Collectors of military surplus optics seek them for their collection according to period, country, use and of course condition is everything.
