    Carles,

    I’m really happy to have landed it into my collection.

    The only things I need to track down to complete it are the 4 wee bulbs & the light cable.....like everyone else [emoji2957]

    Thanks for your kind words my friend.

    The eagle has landed! [emoji95][emoji95]

    I teased all of you last week with this late war Wehrmacht Artillery Sight.

    Well she is here & to say I’m properly chuffed is an understatement!!!

    The jury is still out as the what it’s specific application was.

    G.R.F may translate to:

    Granatwerfer Rundblickfernrohr

    Granat Rundblickfernrohr

    Granat Richtfernrohr

    It’s in what I would call 90% complete “unissued condition” & is just about in “mint” condition.

    There is no content list in the box so I’m guessing that other than the wee bulbs the only other thing missing is the light cable (to illuminate the reticle) [emoji848].

    I would love to get your feedback as the what you think this was used for. I have a feeling it may have been produced so late in the war that it’s intended system never made it into full production or was issued in such limited numbers that it still “undiscovered” [emoji851]

    If you have questions or need more details please just let me know.
