    They were available at every corner at Turkish market 20 years ago , but they were black and looks cheap.
    This one is looking far away better but heavier also.
    Bird photographers would like to own one and also it would take a crowded street in a compressed way and effect would be great. You can be sure no one sees they are photographed

    I doubt that they were specifically made for military usage, but one thing is for sure: if you used one on the street today, you would be very likely to meet a military (or police) person in a somewhat unfriendly mood.

    I had an early one I dropped from a back pack on to the concrete at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Bunged up the body, but I was able to force the film transport and got my pictures of the game. I bought a newer one to replace the kit; but a trip to my local camera whiz got the body working again just fine.

    I have the new outfit, NIB for anyone who is interested in making an offer. As mentioned above, the 300 mm lens is quite sharp.

    In case anybody cares, "фото снайпер" on the label in the second picture means "Sniper Photo" in Russian.

    Or rather "photo sniper".

    Yeah, you're right. I get things backwards pretty often.

    I usually double check to be sure but this time I let one slip by without checking.

    The Photosniper was nothing extraordinary, it's made for regular people, not military. Something like "shoot the animals and birds just like a hunter" I think. I live in Latvia (former USSR) and we have these kits available for ~100GBP "like new" condition.

    I don't think you could use this in a public place. For sure, you will be stopped repeatedly.

    You'd probably be OK using it out in the woods or near a lake or any place not near today's frightened populace and certainly not near a cop.
