H034779 K98 TURRET MOUNT SCOPE CARRYING CASE. (Zielfernrohr Träger)

BACKGROUND: The turret mount scope system, developed in 1939, was considered to be the best mount system used by German snipers, and was used through-out the war. The original scope using this mount system was the Zielfernrohrkarabiner 98K, 4 power scope. As the war continued other scopes including the M39, Heliaver, Ziel-Dialyt, Zielvier and Zielsechs were adapted to this mount system. Most of these scopes were 4 power although some 6 power scopes were also utilized.
