WW2 German Luftwaffe Heer MGZ 40 – ZEISS AIMING SCOPE / SIGHT & BOX – NICE!


Out of stock


You are bidding on a VERY NICE used example of WW2 German MGZ 40 (Machinengewehr Zeilfernrohr 40) Scope, as used in conjunction with the 34 and 42!


Mounted on both the 34 and 42 Lafette Tripod, the MGZ 40 sight was allowed the shooter to have their head lower and thus less exposed when aiming through the sight  


Made of aluminum steel by dpw (Carl Zeiss-Ikon Goerzwerk, Berlin), this aiming scope was manufactured between 1944 and 1945.  Though it has some marks, scratches, and wear, it still reains 90% of its original Dunkelgelb paint, with NO major damage or corrosion!  The manufacture code and data information is stamped into the top, indicating:




All optics are SUPERB, and though they are a slight bit hazy, are VERY CLEAR with only slight spotting!  All adjustments are FULLY functional.  Eye cup is a reproduction.  The box is the original to this scope, however it was re-painted and converted at some time.  “MGZ40” is clearly stenciled on the top.  A replacement could easily be found if one wished.   I have shown its location in the last images.  One of the NICEST I have ever seen of it’s type, it is a VERY NICE scope that would make a PERFECT 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.
