Does anyone know the maker and history of the early Colt AR Scopes???? Anyone know of a place for some light service and parts???

The scope that Colt sold was probably made by Hakko. I have Hakko scope that just look like it. They also made scope for Beeman. Their scope is well made.

Any idea what that scope is worth? I have on my A2 upper and was just curious on the value.

$250ish depending on what it is. I have seen them go for $600 collectors choice.
I can't remember which is the one that is more desirable for collectors...I use optics I dont put them in a glass case. The four types are 4x20, 3x20, 4x21, 3x21. I know Hakko made all 4 types and Colt only made two types, I know that Hakko now only makes one type, while Leapers makes two types. Leapers are of course Chinese clones and not the best quality costing about $50. New Hakkos go for about $100, old original Hakkos go for about $150-200, Colts range from $250-$600.

EDIT-------Funny how things come around.

On another post someone had a link to the original Colts. As I read it, the 3x21 is the oldest Colt scope, while the later ones are 3x20 and labled as such on top. I bet it was HakKo who did the 4x ones.
