When you look at the advertising pic,you can see that you cannot unscrew it too make it longer,but it's very interesting to see your model dated that can unscrew(I guess it's for making vision sharper :think: ),so there were certainly some fabricants of scopes :think: :lol: :thumbsup:

 

 

Hi,

 

it's not a M49 but a M4 telescope (identical to the M48 - only difference between a M4 and M48 is the number 8 stamped after the 4 of M4 on the data plate) and the sliding part is a sliding sunshade.

 

Cordially and Happy new year to all.

This is the only difference I've found between a M4 and a M48 telescope, the number 8 stamped after the 4 of M4 on the data plate. I guess it's just for avoiding errors when asking for spare or repairs parts with others M4 named parts. :think: (hope my english in understandable)

This is how you can recognize a WW2 era made telescope from a post war overhauled one:
