The German WWII equipment. IDentifacation

Postby Corporal-Chaos » 20 Jun 2015, 12:56

Hello all. I recently purchased some Germans and had a question or two on what the items are on the sprue. Specifically 10G-2 and 7G-2. I have no idea what they represent. I'm also curious if there is an assembly guide for the kits. Thanks for any help.

Yeah, It's kinda hard to tell, rather small those pieces are. They look like maybe knife sheaths. Does anyone else have a better answer?

I zoomed in on the sprue as much as my computer would while the image remained discernible, and my best edumacated guess is that they're or or another type of issue fighting knife/boot knife:

It is too large for any type of knife sheath (compare the knives attached to the belt).

It most likely appears to be an optics case. Perhaps for a sniper scope. Or a spotter's monocular.

You may be right. The next time I head down to my FLGS I'll try and remember to drag along my magnifier visor and take a look at the actual sprue (Game Kastle stocks the set in question along with pretty much everything WF I am happy to report!)... we'll get to the bottom of this mystery... 8-)

It is hard to tell because it is so small.

These are ZF41 sniper scopes and their cases:

The Zielfernrohr 41, ZF41 was a long eye relief scope, issued by the German's in large quantities in WWII for use by sharpshooters with the Karabiner, K98k rifle.
The scope was 1.5 x powered, with a side rail mount, that was attached to the rail on the side of a K98, on the left of the rear sight, by rollers.


Here is a Karl Zeiss case:
