The Japanese companies of Nikko and Toko were the main manufacturers of optics for Japan's military leading up to and during WWII. The scope has been stripped of it's original paint, the cast aluminium polished to a mirror finish and then mounted on a custom made bracket fitted to a fixed height wooden tripod stand that is period to the scope. Any brass pieces have been stripped of the original black finish, polished, cleaned and then plated with a thin layer of gold to prevent tarnishing and minimise cleaning. The optics have been fully refurbished to the highest standards. This spotting scope comes with a newly made hardwood floor stand to provide stability to the tripod.Enquire
