RARE WWII German 4x15 Kriegsmarine U-boat Deck Sight Optic WW2 Srb & Stys BMK
A scarce original 4x15 optical sight for the 2cm U-boat deck armament, complete with the mounting base and folding rubber eyepiece. Under the'bmk' maker code, this optic is made from bronze and was designed to be both water and airtight - enabling it to be left fitted to the exterior of the boat during any emergency dive. Despite some apparent losses, mainly to the sides, a fair amount of the original textured grey outer finish remains intact. In addition, this example is also an early production variant with the Kriegsmarine M/IV property markings, which have not been defaced. Another KM ordnance stamp can be found to the top of the piece, located in between the open'iron sights'. Whilst the lenses remain intact, the optics would require a full internal cleaning/service in order to return the piece to a usable state. Overall, a very interesting example of one of the more rarely encountered optics, which would make a great addition to any KM or U-Boat related collection!
