Does someone own an original scope cover for Zeiss Zielsechs and could you, please, show me pictures of this item?

I would like to find one, original or repro.

If you also have pictures of an original leather Zielsechs case, that would be great!

Thanks in advance.

By the way, could you confirm the following measures?

Small Cap:
38mm inside diameter
42mm outside diameter
19mm breath

Big cap:
46-47mm inside diameter
50mm outside diameter
24mm breath

Strap is 32cm long.

I have seen what seems to be a military version for sale and would like to be sure.

The measurement on mine for the breadth is 25MM....small and large both.

And they are military covers as evidenced by the WAa stamp on the inside of the front bell cover.

I purchased them on an LSR rig from an impeccable source (aka Dave Roberts) so I am fairly certain they are authentic and correct.

I would look very hard @ what is being offered for sale if they are being advertised as military.

I suppose there could be variances between such measurements if they came from different suppliers,but I am not qualifed to speak to that.
Some of the more learned here on the forum could verify if there was in fact more then one supplier.

Given the fact that zielsechs were not used as widely as the 4x models I would think that is was from a single source,but that is only an uneducated guess....and I have learned to NEVER EVER assume.

Here is a direct link to the set I'm interested by:

I have also learned to never assume and that is why I prefer to ask before buying something.

Hmm....I would be afraid to offer an opinion due to my limited knowledge on these.

Best to wait for Dave R ,Farb, or one of the sniper guys to come along and give them a blessing before making an offer.

Good luck..

These are NOT the Military Type these are Commercial unless they are Proof Coded on the Inside of the Cap . All military Type with Code I know of have the Ring Snap for securing it to the Scope Tube. But I would not Rule out this Type as being used by Military but again would be Proofed on inside . I believe I have a set if You wish to Buy them PM Me . Best Regards
