L/40, t his was used throughout WW1 and WW2 on various Cruisers and Gunboats! The 10.5 cm SK L/40 SK - Schnelladekanone (quick-loading cannon) L - Länge (with a 40-caliber long barrel) was a German naval gun used in World War I and World War II. It weighed 1,555 kilograms (3,428 lb), had an overall length of 4.475 m (14 ft 8.2 in).
It used a horizontal sliding-block breech design. Used on various ships, such as. Made of solid brass, aluminum, and steel by Zeiss, this scope is in EXCELLENT used condition! Though it is over 100 years old, it still. Retains some of it's original paint, and markings are VERY clear!
Though there is some slight spotting on the objective lens (should be an easy fix), the optics are VERY CLEAR, and the focus adjustment functions 100% correctly! Some small screws also appear to be missing. The data information is still clearly impressed into the front plate, and indicates 10.5cm S. Measuring approx 43 long, it weighs approx.
I have shown the EXACT aiming scope in use in the last photo (see red arrow). Having never seen another one (only 7 guns remain in existence, and none have the targeting sight), it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
