The telescope M84 is a straight
tube type telescope with a fixed focus used for direct sighting. It has been used as a
snipers sighting device on the MIC and MID Garand Rifles, the M1903A4 rifle and the
M14 rifle. The telescope is characterized by a large, bright field of view utilizing a
sunshade to shade the objective and prevent reflections, and an eyeshield to position the
observers eye at the proper distance.
The telescope has an elevation range knob calibrated from 0
to 900 yards, in 50 yard intervals causing a total change in elevation of 12.1
mils. A windage knob, having a range of 20 minutes either right or left, is used to
correct drift caused by wind. The scope has a magnification of 2.2 power.
The M84 telescope was developed during W.W.II as an
improvement over the Lyman M81 and M82 telescopes then in use. The M84 was standardized in
April, 1945, although it is believed that there was no actual production until the Korean
War in the 1950s.
The prime contractor of M84 scopes was the Libby-Owens-Ford
Glass Company of Ohio.
SARCO, Inc. has acquired a large quantity of spare parts
which had been in storage since the 1950s at the Libby-Owens Ford factory. We
