This is a Bausch & Lomb Balvar 8A 2.5-8 rifle scope with a complete mounting system. This scope has no internal adjustments; the adjustments are made in the bases. In this system, the scope is held against the bases by spring tension. This was designed so that the scope could take a hard blow, or be removed, and still return to zero.
This scope is in good overall condition. There are marks from where the scope contacts the front bases and a few small scratches in the body and around the objective lens and eyepiece lens (not on the lens, in the metal).
The glass is crystal clear with no noted defects and the scope has a tapered crosshair.
