Published in Autumn 2004 Zeiss Historica Journal

Author: John Schilling

See Pages 2 – 5.

A discussion about the slow acceptance of Zeiss riflescopes until the 1930’s only to disappear withthe war and then be dormant until the mid-1960s when Zeiss used the Hensoldt factory to make a new design based on suggestions from the US based staff. This is a very competitive market today, especially with the boom in hunting.
