Collecting Military Binoculars


Baigish BPO c 10 x 42



No:  060823

 The 10x42 BPOc (Baigish) is the big brother of the BPO 7 x 30 and also produced at KOMZ (Kazansky Optiko-Mekhanichesky Zavod). Both seem to share the same prism housing and ocular construction, although one feature has been changed: Whereas the 7x30 was initially equipped with an internally focusing ocular and twist-up ocular cups, this was replaced sometimes in 1994 with an external focuser and fixed hard rubber eye-cups. The latter construction is also realized in the 10x42.
