Description
 
Original German WWI Rundblick Fernrohr (Panoramic) Artillery Telescopic Gun Sight By C.P. Goerz Berlin With Transit Case- 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 excellent condition and is fully functional. The optics are clear with some minor fogging, fully functional, and has the inverted “V” reticle, which is still fully visible. The red paint is still excellent and the overall finish is excellent. The top of the objective lens housing has the manufacturer and specification information: C. P. GOERZ BERLIN. Rundblick - Fernrohr Nr. 116030 Rundblick Fernrohr translates "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 metal box measures 9.5” x 4.75” x 4” and painted black, but appears to have been originally gray on the outside since the inside is still painted gray. There is chipping in the paint throughout but the box has no significant damage. The metal box appears to be post WWI, but pre-WWII manufactured. Most likely the optics were used both in WWI and WWII. Excellent condition.
