You are bidding on an AMAZING relic example of a 100% ORIGINAL Revi 16B Rubber Gunsight Shockmount, as ONLY used on the Me109 G thru K fighter aircraft!
The Revi 16B was manufactured around 1942-1945, and was used until the end of the war. This Gunsight entered production to replace the outdated Revi C12/D, and was designed with the Spitfire in mind. The aiming reticle was made in such as way that a Spitfire would fit the aiming circle from edge to edge at 300m, and each increment marking represented 6 mils. This was the main sight the pilot or gunner used when sighting targets (aircraft or ground).
Made of rubber, this is a PERFECT relic example. It is still very solid, but does show some slight signs of wear, bends and slight cracking due to the age. This section of rubber mounted in between the gunsight mount and the wood panel (see last photo). Would make an EXCELLENT addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
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.

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
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. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
