It is crtystal clear, but before try it out I am trying to find some instructions for this device!
I have also heard the Pv
mark is Finnish military? In what capacity?
These rangefinders are the smallest I have seen, not the 10 meter ones on ships.
Who used them? Mortars? Machineguns? Anti-tank guns? Anti aircraft?
Thanks very much for any info!

Pv T = Puolustusvoimain Taisteluvälinehuolto, "Ordnance Maintenance of the [Finnish] Defence Forces" or Puolustusvoimain Taisteluvälineosasto, "Ordnance Department of the [Finnish] Defence Forces". The marking predates [SA], which was in use from 1942 to 1969.
The smallest ones seems to have been mostly used by anti-aircraft machine guns and front line infantry units. The practical accuracy of 0,7 ZEISS rangefinder is considered by the Finnish Defence Forces to be 30 metres up to 1000 metres and 60 metres between 1000 and 1500 metres. www.mil.fi - Stereoetäisyysmittari 0,7 ZEISS
