Re: 485 Cordwrap Feet

Hi Chuck,

I like your reasoning - the scopes do look very similar to a 485. But the foot the customer sent me was not a 453 or 454 foot. It looks like it's an earlier vintage than that. I've uploaded some photos of the foot the customer sent me, hoping that someone on the list will recognize it.

I've also asked him for some photos of the scope, front and back, but have not heard back.

I think if you explore this further with your customer,
you will find he doesn't have a 485 at all, but rather
has one of the similar looking scopes, the 453, or 454.

I don’t see any way that a 485 could use cordwrap feet like a 465/475. The area where these mount to the scope is very narrow. Too narrow for the footprint of the 465/475 type of foot. It would take a hybrid design, sort of a melding of the 465 foot with the 485 foot.

I would ask the customer for a picture of the back and front of the scope.

I would be very interested to see what they have.
