    Default Unknown soviet rifle scope WW2?

    Can someone help me indentify this scope. My father got it from his friend who passed away, the friend got it from his father who was a member of Finnish army during that time. We guessing it's spoils of war. Any idea what it's worth. The scope is fully operational (all the knobs etc work like new and the lenses are perfect) solid build, little patina but nothing alarming. Here are some pictures of the item.

    Its a pre-war dated M/91-30 (Mosin Nagant) PE Sniper Scope, very nice find From what you've said about its history, it may be possible that it was a captured piece re-used by the Finnish.

    Theres some photographs of it fitted to an M/91-30 here: Rifles Of The Red Star

    Thanks

    Google 'Russian PEM scope', there's plenty on e-bay but prices vary $200-$600+

    btw, why the two dates? 1931 and 1936? is the 1931 the creation year of the model and 1936 the year of manuafacture?

    well guess we cant sell it since I cannot find any price refrence to this model. the ones captured by finnish army seems to be re stamped. I think [SA] )Suomen Armeija ironically under the soviet logo.
