WW2 Imperial Japanese Army MODEL 94 1-METER RANGE FINDER EXCELLENT
This instrument is a one-meter base, stereoscopic, horizontal base rangefinder. Ranges are read directly from the reticles. The outer tube is made of cast aluminum. The inner tube, made of seamless steel tubing, is supported in the outer tube by means of a gimbal joint. The height of image knob is located on the right end of the instrument; the range correction knob is on the left side. The lighting window of the reticle is above the eye-piece plate. An auxiliary open sight is located above the right eye piece. Uniform adjustment of interpupillary distance is obtained by connecting the two eyepieces with steel tape forming a figure 8. Rhomboid prisms keep the optical axes of the eyepieces in alignment with the reticles. The prism assemblies are held to circular plates which may be rotated to eliminate tilt of image and place both images at the same height in the field of view. Made of a brass, aluminum, and steel, this 1 meter Rangefinder is in EXCELLENT used condition! 95% of it's original paint and finish, and all knobs function smoothly and correctly! The optics appear to be VERY CLEAR (some slight spotting, and a bit hazy), and the body still retains the original data information. Both leather protective pads remain at each end, however they are a bit dry and fragile, with some damage. I have shown it in use in the last photos.
Once of the nicest ones I have seen, it would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
