It looks very similar to the night vision scopes we were using in 77, albeit on m16s.

I know the photo on the left is of Waldron Adelbert. I don't think the one on the right is though.

For clarity, it's a M76 grenade launcher in post # 97 and a M79 grenade launcher in post # 100.

Any news about the scope?
Those were two U. S. Army 25th Infantry Division snipers. The rifles have AN/PVS-2 night scopes mounted on them.

Post #88's image is that of obstructed barrel damage (post-firing).

No way a VC's sniper bullet entered the barrel at the perfect angle for banana peeling.

Thanks again for the photos everyone!
