Russian scopes

 

This is the last prototype version of the PE scope which was only different from the later serial production model by a different elevation adjustment. It comes with the original mount (very first mounts only had numbers on them, no letters). Scopes with this type of elevation adjustment were made in 1932 and 1933. The original manufacturer markings were scrubbed by a previous owner, most possibly already when brought back as war trophy.

_DSC0118 - Copie - Copie21943 dated PU scope, made by PRogress factory in Omsk, on a rare original Tula (plant n°314) SVT40 mount dated 1941. SVT40 sniper variants were produced from 1941 to 1942 so this PU scope doesn’t match its mount and was originally mounted on a Mosin Nagant 91/30 rifle.
