All are marked by Israeli military IDF markings. These are one of the rarest military surplus scopes that any militaria collector would love to add to his collection. The Israel Defense Forces used the German Mauser K98 rifles, by bringing them through Czechoslovakia after WW2, mainly during the war of Independence in 1948 up to the early 1970's when used by Israeli snipers in the Suez Canal fortifications known as the Bar-Lev Line. The K98 was later replaced by the Uzi, FN FAL, Galil as the main fighting weapons. Only 200 were known to be produced for the Israeli military. This set of IDF Wild Heerbrug Mauser K98 4x30 rifle scope, IDF K98 Mauser mount and special adapters come with the original tin case and all are in very good condition. A real rare find!
