Product Details

See history from your desk. The North American P-51 Mustang fighter fought -- and won -- many battles during World War II, earning recognition as "the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence." This artifact is a genuine K-14 gyro gunsight produced by Sperry in the United States and installed in a P-51. An improvement on the older reflector gunsights, it was equipped with a gyroscope to help the pilot or gunner hit targets with greater accuracy. This gunsight has been refinished by hand and set in a housing made from plasma-cut 11-gauge hot-rolled steel, in a shape inspired by Boeing propeller planes of the 1940s. The entire assembly was then hand-polished and powder-coated with a vintage finish. Certificate of Authenticity included. Each piece is unique and may vary slightly from photograph. Measures approximately 11.5"L x 8.5"W x 12"H. Made in U.S.A. *NOTE: This artifact is sold "as is" with no guarantee that parts maintain original function. Not for flight use.*
