I recently picked up a 4X Kollmorgen Bear Cub Scope with a post reticule to put on my '03-A3 sporter. It is in excellent condition for a scopes made in the '50's, and very clear. The only drawback is it has a 26mm diameter body, so I will have to modify rings to fit. I understand that Kollmorgen sold it's scope line to Redfield in 1959, and the scope has some collector value. Does anyone have any other information?

You might get by with 1" if you use paper or something to line them but it is best to find the proper rings. Some folks still make them I believe tho finding them in stock is not such an easy chore.

It was in its day a really fine scope but its day has long since passed. I'm not much of one for the nostalgia of such old scopes personally and feel they are best left to collectors but there is a segment of the market that longs for the nostalgia of such scopes and prefer them on period rifles I'm just not part of that segment.
