Still, FED nkvd up until "red flag" batch is excellent camera. Especially the Komandirski with f/2 50mm lens.
Yes FED NKVD are excellent cameras once you change the shutter curtains, remove the old gummy grease, trash the rangefinder mirror and put a new one and adjust the flange to the lens you have. These are excellent cameras not because they are Russian or Ukrainian but because they are simple to overhaul and pretty easy to use. And, as a personal note, I consider the Leica II and its Soviet clones as one of the most elegant cameras ever built.

Take care.
