    Default Kowa (Kowa Optics, Japan) 3X9X42 Rifle Scope

    I found this Kowa (Kowa Optics, Japan) 3X9X42 Rifle Scope today.

    Kowa is known for their quality spotting scopes but I thought that they quit selling rifle scopes in the US in the 60s.

    The fact that it's in matte black and has fine crosshairs with a tapered post makes me think it's newer production. All their old scopes were gloss.

    Any ideas?

    Hmm...finally remembered to check the library. Stroebel shows no listing for Kowa...not sure what to think. Sorry.
