    THere was a post on here where I put up a photo of an unmolested NKVD/NKAP scope.
    I saw photo of your scope. Nice scope, I plan to bid on it EBAY also
    But absence of refurb mark does not mean that scope wasn't is service. Finish is original, but distance and windage turrets and turret caps at your scope are from Progress scope.

    Yes, that's me, I remember.
    As you notice I update my collection, but still need one scope to finish it

    Thanks! I knew it had been in service but not refurbed! What are the distinguising features between cap makers? (I know the kransnogorsk ones). How can we identify them?
    I'll send you a new spreadsheet once I've gotten a sufficient number of scopes, but now I have to use your new list to give new indicator numbers (I had given each variant a number).

    Here is the Kharkov scope from the earlier thread just to fully reference this one, so how can we tell the differences in caps between kharkov and progress (ignoring the Kransnogorsk scope)?

    Progress turrets are matte (sometimes with light yellow tint) , FED turrets are more shiny.
    Different font + different ribbing at the turret caps

    Thanks! I don't think I have any with a FED set of caps..........
    Where did Kharkov equipment end up?

    Actually, not only FED scopes have caps with such ribbing in 1940-1942. I don't know why, but first Yoskar Ola scopes, produced in 1943 (near 5000 SVT-tube scopes) also have such ribbing, then they switched to vertical ribbing
