Anyone have a pic of this in use? I imagine it was for maps , but who knows.

26 inches long, painted green over brown bakelite cyl. with press and twist to lock cap , early light shade webbing.

inside at the bottom there is a sprung plunger.

if worn on the belt it would seem to be a bit in the way.

That is the case for the Unertal Sniper Scope the USMC used during WW2 and Korea and there were still some around during Vietnam. Much better than a map case.

On May 17 one of these Unertl cases sold on Ebay for $1,124 (the USMC Unertl Scopes sell sell for about $6,500 or more).

holy crap.

I almost didn't pick it up , thinking someone made it to carry a fishing pole or something.

thanks alot for the information and the ID, I don't think I can afford to keep it , as the wifes car just lost the AC and needs repair.

Is that a belt hanger? Looks like the rifle scope Jackson had on his Haversack from the film Saving Private Ryan

Sorry this is a bad pic, but you have the movie you know where to look

I don't recall what scope case they used in SPR but the case we are discussing is a USMC item all the way. It can be carried from any piece of gear that has the grommets for the 1910 belt hook.
