    Unertl Serial numbers?

    Hello to all and would like to say that although this my first post I have enjoyed reading the various threads
    occasionally for some time. Many very informative.
    I have always enjoyed shooting different bench and varmint rifles I have built over the years.
    On 3 of these I have the older external adjustment
    Unertls.
    I have always been curious as to the year of manufacture of these.
    All were bought used so I dont have a clue . all have a serial number and wondered if there were any records kept?
    Thank you for the forum and time to speak.

    Ron,
    I`ve paid particular attention to any posts regarding Unertl scopes the past few years and have found no such source. I have but one left, #46039, a 1-1/2-16X. When I moved back home in the late 80`s, my first two "chuck" rifles were on M98 Mausers in 22.250, quite the load to carry from one large hayfield to the next.

    Short of someone having a dated receipt from Unertl with serial number included, if they did that sort of thing back then, the info you seek does not exist.

    I did find one of their handbooks (East Street address) with the seperate pricelist but no dates shown. The pricelist shows my 16X target scope at the time was $105.00

    Here's a start for your research.

    A May 1,1984 factory catalog shows an 1 1/2" Target at $250.

    My 1 1/2" Target, delivered in '86 I believe, is #7939X. New Unertls were very difficult to get at that time.

    Good shooting!

    Thank Scott and Wapiti,
    That is a start, any pictures of that 98 with the Unertl on top?

    There is a Yahoo Group dedicated to Unertl scopes. Members there will have the information you seek.
