Here's one I found on the internet.....Does anybody readily recognize which country this ebay is from?....And the application for the scope/mount set up?....Swiss military?....

My mount and leather case are different, but scope is identical....Bodes

I'm assuming French or Swiss ebay, if either exists?..Would still be curious as to whether these setups were for the Swiss' own military use or for commercial military use?....Variations in mount setups leads me towards ex-military use, than sold off for commercial hunting use, with mount/leather accessories added to the scopes.....But if this were indeed the case, why are they so scarce?.....Bodes
