This is an original USN or USAF Corsair II Attack Fighter Aircraft Carrier Jet Gun Sight or Optical Sight with the mount assembly. It is in good used condition. This sight lights up at the top and reflex’s the cross hairs on the glass using the mirror below. I had an 0-2A FAC aircraft and it used a very similar sight. This sight has two lenses , one clear for day and one red for night. This sight came out of A-7 Bu. This aircraft was in VA-82 from 1968 to 1971. In 1971 it was in NWEC. In 1973 to 1977 it was in VA-93. It is 8 x 11 x 5 inches and weighs 3 pounds. I don’t believe there are any more of these aircraft flying. This would be a great on the desk or shelf of a former A-7 driver. Thank you for your interest in my auctions.
