WW II German Army / Navy Z. F. 3x8° 5cm KwK SCOPE KwK 38/39 RARE
3x8° Scope, as ONLY used on the early 5cm KwK Guns! This was used specifically on the 5cm KwK 38 L/42 & 5cm KwK 39 L/60, used for coastal defense! The 5cm KwK 38 L/42 (5 cm Kampfwagenkanone 38 L/42) was a German 5 cm calibre cannon used as the main armament of variants of the German SdKfz. 141 Panzerkampfwagen III medium tank during the Second World War. The 5 cm KwK 39 L/60 (5 cm Kampfwagenkanone 39 L/60) was a German 5 cm calibre gun used as the main armament of later models of the German Panzerkampfwagen III tank from 1941 onwards. Both versions were adopted for Coastal Defense and Bunker Emplacements. This aiming scope was manufactured between 1941 and 1943. It retains 90% of its original finish, however the mounting rings were removed. 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. 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 w. 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.
