37. Leica IIf SABRE Gun Stock + 4/400 Telyt *

The complete set includes a matching Leica IIf no. 613603 and the Telyt 5/40 cm no. 1486109 (hood), Visoflex I no. 33925 with 45° PEGOO, SABRE gunstock with cable release – all in perfect condition. LITERATURE James L. Lager (ed.), Leica Illustrated History, Vol. II, Lenses, 1994, p. 188. The “Sabre Photographic Supply Company“, located in the state of Illinois in the USA, only produced the well known “Sabre Stock” Leica rifle, custom-made for the screw-mount and M-series Leicas, for one year (1956 to 1957), but this was never officially sold by Leitz. Therefore, we can only estimate how many of these were sold in the USA – conservative estimates ranging between two and three dozen. However, the “Sabre Stock”, painstakingly crafted in keeping with Leitz quality standards, was not only a piece of well thought-out photographic equipment for Leica cameras, but is also a joy to behold for any lover of high precision products. The use of high-quality materials as well as great accuracy and precision in its making led to a handy Leica rifle, sure to fascinate any Leica fan to this day.
