Original German WWI & WWII Panoramic Artillery Telescopic Gun Sight by by C.P. Goerz Berlin
Original Item: Only One Available. Here we have a very nice German Artillery Gun Sight by C.P. Goerz of Berlin, a very well known maker of these sights. They were used on a variety of artillery pieces, allowing more precise spotting while firing. This gun sight is in very good condition, and as far as we can tell is fully functional. The optics are clear and fully functional, and the cross hair reticle is still fully visible. The red paint is still very good, and the overall finish is very nice.
The top of the objective lens housing has the manufacturer and specification information:
C. P. GOERZ
Fernrohr Nr. 77227
D.R.P. Nr. 156039
Rundblick Fernrohr translates directly to "Panoramic view telescope", which definitely describes the abilities of this type of sight. The two adjustment knobs allow both elevation and traverse adjustments, definitely valuable for "dialing in" artillery fire. There is also a slit collimator on the top right of the sight to help confirm alignment.
The side of the top piece is marked with SA in a rectangle, which stands for Suomen Armeija, the Finnish Army. This could mean that this was shipped as aid to Finland during WWII for the "Winter War" and "Continuation War", or possibly that it was exported there post war. Much German WWII materiel was sold to Finland during the post war years.
In great shape, ready to display, or even use!
