It is not every day that you come across a camera that is mounted to a rifle. Of course, when we are talking about an ancient Leica camera, it becomes all the more precious and expensive at the same time. With that in mind, here is a Leica Telephoto Assembly Rifle which is expected to fetch more than $100,000 when it goes under the hammer. It was designed by E. Leitz agency and the Leica gun that the camera is mounted on was manufactured for sports photographers way back in 1936.
That was almost the time when the WW II started to take place. The Leica IIIa camera is mounted on a rifle stock so that wildlife photographers and sports photographers could take amazing pictures when it came to showing off their trophies to other photo loving friends of theirs. The 200mm Telyt lens is in pristine condition and can be used as easily as you would use a rifle, if that even makes any sense. It was common during those days to mount camera son top of a rifle so that exact photos could be shot.
Perhaps this is from where the phrase ‘shooting pictures’ comes from. If you are an avid picture lover or a photographer, you would certainly want to go ahead and get yourself this cool Leica Telephoto Assembly Rifle. However, be warned that it is going to cost a lot of money. I would say, go ahead and get this before someone else gets it for it is too good to be missed.
