Re: Wild Rangefinders

To Takeaim1st, the Barr and Stroud is a copy of the Wild so there is no difference in dimensions or function. They have a slightly different window through the viewfinder. I have one and it also seems to be an excellent optical instrument that would cost a fortune to manufacture today.

I have been out of town for a week and have a few private messages to respond to but wanted to re-post these as they are still available.

Re: Wild Rangefinders

FYI, I also have a smaller British unit but it is not for sale. I am not sure who manufactured it as the nameplate is badly worn but it seems to be as accurate as the Wild and B&S units that I have.

I have collected a few of these (there are excellent Russian versions as well) as they are very interesting examples of some real craftmanship.
