WW2 German Heer Luftwaffe EM 4m R (H) 36 – RANGE FINDER MONOCULAR – VERY RARE!


Out of stock


You are bidding on a SUPERB used example of a WW2 German 10×45 Monocular, as used in conjunction with larger 4 meter Em 4m R. (H) 36 (Entfernungsmesser) Rangefinder!  This was used by both the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine for anti-aircraft use.


The German military used a wide variety of optical equipment.  The Em.4m R. (H)Entfernungsmesser 4 m Raumbild (Hochenmesser) 34 – was a standard 4 m-class rangefinder of heavy antiaircraft batteries.  It could be used as free standing on a tripod base (in co-operation with the Kdo.Hi.Ger. 35) or coupled directly with the Kdo.Ger. 36 or Kdo.Ger. 40.  The Em 4 m R (H) 34 were manned by 4 men (3 aimers and a commander) and could measure ranges  from 620 m (670 m in case of the model 34) to 50 000 m, as well as target’s altitude.  It features various prisms, mirrors, and beam splitters which split the magnified image.  Once the split image is brought into one focused image the distance is known. 

Made of a brass, aluminum, and steel, this LEFT SIDE 10×45 Monocular unit is in EXCELLENT used condition!  It retains approx. 90% of it’s original paint and finish, and all knobs function smoothly and correctly!  The optics are farily clear, with minimal spotting, and the focus adjust functions 100% correctly!  Has 4 filters that can be adjusted via the upper knob, giving the user the ability to use various shades/darkness of grey (depending on light conditions).  The body still retains an original data label indicating,

Carl Zeiss



A stenciled “1” is on the top, most likely indicating the placement order, when mounted (multiple monocular and binoculars were mounted at one time).  Also has a mounting plate on the bottom.  One of the few I have seen, I have indicated the exact type in the first image, as well as some photos of the larger version (all have the binocular mounted, as opposed to the single monocular, however).  Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- 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.
