03 Sniper scope questions

Besides Weaver, who else manufactured the M73 and M73B1 scopes?

was a "power booster" used in WW2 and how common was that?

The M73B1 was a Weaver 330 C scope, the first scope used on the 03A4. The M73 was a Lyman Alaskan which first appeared on the M1C rifle. The M73, M73B1, M81, and M82 were standardized for the A4, with the B1 and M84 being the preferred ones. There was also a M73B2 experimental scope that was made in France. I'm not familiar with a "power booster". What is it?

I don't know who made the M84. Brophy's "The Springfield Rifles" didn't name the maker. That booster is interesting, but IMHO I think it was made for the commercial market, since the M73B1 was a commercial scope drafted into the service , and it happens to fit it. I wonder when the booster was made?
