Here is a rather impressive gunsight for Russian Maxim MG, as used in permanent fortified emplacements. Length almost 1.05 m. Marking in cyrillics: KT-2 N 4211 K PUL MAKSIMA (for Machinegun Maxim type) Hammer Star and Sickle 1940. Crosshair graticule moving horizontally and vertically by two knobs
Similar gunsight used by the Finnish Army for antitank cannon M-40 in bunker emplacements during WW2

What an amazing gunsight and still in its box with rubber eyecup intact.
I can't imagine the amount of work required to produce the sight so much fine machining.
                                                                                               Great find Zbig, thanks for sharing.

To top the story, it still have a Finnish army technical inspection tag attached and marked 1942  :D
