    ZF-4 reproduction scope: Japanese vs. Meopta

    Which one is better? What does it really matter? This is for use on a G 43

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    Didn't know there was a Japaneseicon made repro?

    The Meopta are close to being a new-build original, in that Meopta was the post-WW2 company formed from several pre-WW2 and WW2 era companies which included Optikotechna (dow) who were one of the contractors that made the ZF4 scope during WW2, and have access to original documentation to re-create them, plus even some of the original equipment. They use modern coated lends etc though, and some other tiny changes to differentiate them from originals so they can't be sold as such.
    They are supposed to be very good scopes.
    Just the thing for putting round holes in square heads.
