WWII Soviet 4 Power Trench and Sniper Periscope
click for an even bigger image



World War II period "TR" model (which in the Russian language is written "TP") periscope that was used for spotting from concealed positions, including use by Red Army sniper teams. The optics are a bit cloudy but the focus adjustment works. The scope reflects the post-WWII refurbishment by the Soviet military, with the scope having been repainted and placed in a fabric carrying bag (during World War II the scopes were carried in leather cases, which were heavier and less practical). Very good condition.
