Luftwaffe Revi 16A Reflector Gunsight
by: Matt L
Description: The Revi 16A reflector gunsight was designed as a replacement for the earlier Revi C/12D type sight and itself was soon replaced by the slightly improved Revi 16B, so in fact, very few were manufactured (the manual for the A is dated April, 1941 and the B's is dated March, 1942). Once the B model was available, existing stocks of the Revi 16A sight were used in aircraft like the Me163B Komet, and the Do335 Pfeil as well as for some flexible defensive armament mounts. This sight is in excellent condition, and all internal components, including an original intact light bulb, are present. It was designed by Carl Zeiss, Jena, and the manufacturer of this particular sight was ‘bvf’- the famous optics manufacturer Reichert (Optische Werke, C. Reichert Wien 107, XVII, Hernalser Hauptstr. 219.).
