Continuing with yet another rifle scope post (I’ll get back to early cameras and photographic equipment soon enough): As I’ve mentioned in the other postings @Windwalker expressed an interest in my son’s collection.
As background, for the past several years I have been photographing a variety of early rifles and historically interesting parts for my son who was a Marine (having deployed in Fallujah as a sniper squad member and returned unharmed). While doing the photography, I came to appreciate the subtle industrial beauty and personality of this equipment.
Anyhow, I really like this Redfield “International Match” rifle sight and it is probably something @Windwalker will appreciate because of his interest in open sights. From my perspective, it is practically a work of industrial art with a steam-punk like appearance. Very cool!
The rifle itself is rare because it is "US Property" marked.
Anyhow, I hope many of you find this as interesting as I do.
