CongratS!! I have it's big brother. Gundlach 8X20, and it shares many parts with this one. Imminently useable! You will get a lot of satisfaction from this old camera. My 820 Gundlach rates 2nd in use only to the 810 'dorff. Now you have to watch for the "wells fargo wagon" every day. Don't be afraid to put a "packard" shutter inside and experiment with some of the classic lenses!
