First of all, thank you for visiting my blog. For a fes years, I’ve been collecting sniper scopes of both World Wars, with a preference for the WWI german scopes. During these years, I learned a lot with the help of other collectors. In my opinion, I would not be very useful sharing my knowledge about sniper scopes since everything I know is already accessible in books or online. That’s why I decided to complete these very complete sources with pictures, pictures of scopes coming from my collection or from collecting friends. You can’t always share what you own in your collection but you can share pictures of it. That’s the point of this blog.

Like Robert Spielauer did in his beautiful books, this blog will focus on pictures and short description. For more complete information, I invite you to visit the links section, redirecting to websites and books containing everything you need to know on the subject.

I would like to thank all the people who support me and/or contribute to this blog by sending me pictures of their collections. If you want me to show scopes from your collection or other sniper-related items, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Also, if you need more information, if you have something to sell here or if you wish to use the pictures of this blog, feel free to contact me at and I’ll do my best to help.

  1. Hi Sniper collections,

    A friend of mine has been handed down an Oigee Berlin Luxor scope from his grandfather.

    I was attached to a Mauser Werke.

    The scope is not in working order and he wants to get it repaired.

    Would you be able to point me in the direction of someone who can repair it?

    Many thanks,

  5. Hi Laurent,
    I own a P14 sniper rifle #230579 which is sadly missing its scope and mount. Your site was brought to my attention by a good friend “valley sniper” who suggested I should contact you to see if you could help in any way to locate a pattern 1918 scope and mount for my rifle. If you have one for sale or know of someone who has can you please contact me. Many thanks, Paul Ellis

  6. The M on the ZF41 most likely means the screws are metric.
    Around 1940, that change slowly came with the standard 6×30 binoculars.
    On the 6×30 binoculars M means all screws are metric.

    It should be possible to measure the treads of the screws, to see if they match a metric thread.

  7. I have a scope that is marked C.P.GOERZ [above this is CERTAR [do you know what CERTAR means?
    Scope # 2 is marked OLGEE–BERLIN–0n the tower edge–GNOM 4 -[do you know that GNOM means?
    Anything you know about ether or both I would be great full for. Thank you for your time. Paul

  10. Hi Laurent,

    For several reasons I was compelled to cancel my project of a book about blackpowder rifles.
    I am now working on a book about WW2 military rifles and I would like to use, with your permission, some picture to illustrate the chapter on sniper rifles.
    Thanks for the attention and best regards.


  11. Good afternoon, I was just taking a look at your site and filled out your feedback form. The contact page on your site sends you messages like this to your email account which is why you are reading through my message at this moment right? That’s half the battle with any type of advertising, getting people to actually READ your advertisement and I did that just now with you! If you have something you would like to promote to millions of websites via their contact forms in the U.S. or anywhere in the world send me a quick note now, I can even target particular niches and my costs are very reasonable. Write a reply here:

  12. Hello,
