Both versions were adopted for Coastal Defense and Bunker Emplacements. Made of steel by Oculus, Berlin, this aiming scope was manufactured between 1941 and 1943. It retains 95% of its original finish with NO corrosion or damage! The manufacture code and data information is stamped into the top, indicating. All optics are SUPERB, with MINIMAL signs of spotting!
The optics are VERY CLEAR, and not hazy like you see in the photo. It comes with the original mount/base, as well as the attachment plate for a light source Though this type of scope was commonly used on FlaK and Anti-Tank guns, this specific type was designed SPECIFICALLY for use on the 5cm KwK for Coastal Defense (identifiable by the type of reticle). I have shown it installed on the 5cm KwK 38 in the last images. A VERY RARE scope to obtain, it is one of the NICEST I have ever seen of it's type! Ould 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. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
