Leupold Mark 4 3.5-10x40mm LR/T M3 Mil Dot (51850)
Original Acquisiton Price: $1,122.00
Currently there are 254 of these scopes at DLA Anniston CDC (Frankford AVE, BLDG 282, Anniston AL 36201-4199) with 10 days left in the listing cycle.
They're all used (I think) but look pretty good. See pics below.
They're in 2 lots:
My chief said we can't get any, so I'm passing the info along. In LA, these would cost my agency $112 each. It's a rare find in this condition. If you go to Anniston you could hand-pick.
This is for those agencies enrolled in the DLA's LESO Program with internet access to RTD. You must be a property screener with your agency to visit a DLA site (on post).
I received some questions about LESO and RTD in general, so here is my brief summary about all that:
It's all federal surplus property that's awarded to government entities (among other eligible organizations such as fire/rescue departments, ROTC programs, museums, etc.) The property shows up in cycles as it's turned in to a DLA site by either the military or a federal agency. Then, if you're a property screener for your government agency, you can search for it and request it. The requests get submitted to whoever is the state coordinator for your state, and must be approved by them. If approved, they go on to DLA LESO HQ in Battle Creek, MI for approval there. The cost for property is set by your state, not by DLA. Most states charge 10% of original federal acquisition cost.
Can you explain how this works please?
I'm a LEO but not near Anniston. I have a friend who is near Anniston though. How would he go about acquiring some of these scopes? Someone he can contact?
If you know someone in Anniston (anyone), the head of your agency can sign a form to make them a property screener for your agency. With a copy of that form, they can enter a DLA site and inspect (screen) the property. This could also include hand-picking whatever quantity your agency gets awarded and carrying it off. However they cannot actually request the property. Only someone with a fully setup RTD login approved by your state coordinator can submit requests. These accounts are created through the DLA AMPS website, then roles are requested there, and finally your state coordinator approves authorization of the account. Multiple people at an agency can have such an individual account, but if no one at your agency has one already, you won't get one in time to request these scopes.
So it would be pointless to get a friend in Anniston to look at them unless someone with an account associated with your agency can login to request the property. Once awarded, whomever is specified by the agency (for that particular release of property) signs to pick them up (could be anyone, the local pack & ship service). Then they must be accounted for every year in the online inventory system (which is LESO FEPMIS in FAMWEB).
There can be all kinds of stuff found in RTD searches through LESO. It's not just DoD hardware (although the majority is). The hard part is sorting the crappy items from the good items, largely due to the condition being unknown. DLA sites are required to upload at least one photo of a property lot when requested, but often those photos are useless.
There are DLA sites all over the world, but shipping from outside the US is expensive, and your agency is responsible for getting the property boxed-up and shipped. FedEx and UPS will not pack stuff into boxes for you. You have to pay a local pack & ship outfit to go onto the base if you cannot send one of your people there.
