MGZ40 MG34/42 Lafette optic 'dpw'
A very nice MGZ40 optic as was used in conjunction with the MG34/42 when fitted to the heavy Lafette tripod, to assist with more accurate direct fire at range.
This particular example is finished in the original factory applied Dunkelgelb tan paint, which is retained to a very high percentage, and is maker coded 'dpw' for Zeiss-Ikon A-G, Goerzwerk, Berlin.
The optics still remain usable, with the V-shaped aiming reticule visible inside, and all adjustment dials in fully functioning condition. The rubber eyecup is a later addition, as is often the case due to originals being prone to perish/loss over time.
Overall, a great example which is sure to complete any mid-late war MG Lafette display very well indeed!
