    Does anyone know what scope this is, and would it be correct on a K98k?

    Looks like a low light scope, probably around 3x. Don't know model.

    The turret mounts certainly look correct. I'll have to check my "German Snipers" book to see if the scope is correct, but offhand, it looks pretty close to what they used. I just saw the movie, and enjoyed it. Very intense!

    I was at the Sarco website on the page where they sell reproduction German scope mounts and these look like the 'bnz' single-claw mounts.

    As for the scope, looks like an Ajack scope like the ones on the Swedish Mauser snipers, but it seems to be longer...

    The mounts seem to be about the right make and age but I think the scope is a SWAROVSKI and looks to be a 42mm probly a 4 or 6 power. Not sure if this scope is acurate to the time that this film was dipicting, but they are a heck of a scope and can still be found surplus for around $400 and some new in box for about $500 or there abouts.
    try CDNN INVESTMENTS INC. They deal in alot of WWII surplus for a reasonable cost.
