Mercy! I need to sell mine Unertl scopes.



Log in to see fewer ads
I keep an eye on Unertl scope sales.....just keeping up with the value on them mostly.

Someone wanted this Unertl Ultravarmint 15X.....looks like two bidders locked up over it.

Granted it appears to be a very nice example. I had considered bidding early on, but recalled seeing several Unertls up at the big Tulsa show last fall that upon close inspection appeared to have been reblued. Not saying that is the case here of course.

The prices on these scopes appear to be holding strong. Sure makes me feel good about my three.

Unertl scopes are akin to buying an old car or motorcycle. Prices are all over the place sometimes. The scope you refer is from all outward images a very nice condition large tube scope. Obviously the 1" main tube scopes are more difficult to find in good condition. If that were a 20 or 24 power scope it no doubt would have brought close to 2 grand or more. I have a herd of Unertl's but mine are limited to 3/4" main tubes and I won't sell any of them. Are there better scopes available today? Certainly, but once you get a really good Unertl and figure out how to use it you will be hooked.

This makes me feel good about the 40X I bought earlier this year, $1500 with a nice 24X Unertl. I didn't know what to expect having never owned one, I'm pretty impressed. It's a lot more clear than my T24s, V24s ot T36. Just takes a little getting used to the adjustments.

I commented then that I thought you had made a great buy on that combo.

As you can see, I'm a big fan of the old big scopes....

What exact rifle models are those, what scope, and which is your favorite to shoot? (If you don't mind taking the time to answer...)

Is the third one from the top a Win 75?

It's a 52B. Top to bottom 52E, 52D, 52B, Rem 37, Rem 40XB. I no longer own the two Remingtons.....they fell victim to my downsizing mode.

I guess it depends. Accuracy in a rifle can cover a multitude of sins and blemishes, but being a nice rifle can't compensate for lack of accuracy where my tastes are concerned.....bear in mind these are all factory guns. The 37 was the least accurate of the bunch. The three Winchesters are pretty much neck and neck with the B's trigger being the minor detraction....otherwise it can hang with the other two on a given day. The 40XB was right behind the Winchesters. The E was my favorite for several years.....it averaged 249 on the IR 50 target in club competition last year. But something happened to the trigger at the end of the season, and it hasn't shot quiet as well since.....need to get that sorted out. So, until that happens the D is my favorite flavor. This year I have to shoot against the custom guns, so I mounted a tuner on the D, and it seems like it wants to shoot. This series of six groups was shot a few days ago after adjusting the tuner a bit.



I enjoy shooting them all. I enjoy using those old Unertls.

Back to the Gunbroker purchased Unertl......the buyer paid up but he appears to have gotten a nice scope. Hope it's a good one.

^^ Thanks for that summary. I can imagine those are all fun to shoot, and maybe even more so with the old-school scopes. And some fantastic groups there.

Scopes

I enjoy the older long scopes. I would rank them Unertl, Fecker, Lyman and others.

Very nice. Unfortunately, my Mark III fell victim to my downsizing mode.

Martini’s require a proper scope.
