Located in Lehigh County, PA.

Well cared for and gently used Springfield Armory Government Model 7.62 scope with rangefinding out to 1000 meters.

Seekins Precision 30mm rings that fit this scope. The rings were purchased two months ago and mounted for one trip to the range and so are essentially brand new.

$400 for both items. No trades.

Folks have asked about the reticle. It is a first focal plane (FFP) rangefinding reticle that allows for accurately determining the range to a target based on a known dimension of that target.

Taking a picture of the reticle through the scope didn't work very well so here's a picture from the side of the box. The 2 prongs at the bottom allow you to see if the rifle is level with the horizon.

This is a close up of reticle.


Common target sizes:

Elk and large game: 24” chest area - 18" from nose to back of head
Prairie dog: an adult is 9" long
Military: 18” to 20” across the shoulders - 6" from ear to ear
Coyote: 9” chest area - 18" standing from ground to top of back
Deer: 18" from shoulder to brisket

Here you can see the details. If you were hunting deer, you'd bracket the deer between the upper and lower horizontal lines with its shoulder on the top line and its brisket on the bottom line. Reading the number to the left of the crosshair (except 4 which is to the right of the crosshair) will tell you the distance in meters e.g. 6 = 600 meters. If you're using standard velocity 168gr ammo, place the crosshair at the desired aiming point and pull the trigger.
