I think that its a clone of the 1938 Biotar 75mm by Zeiss is what makes it look vintage
No such luck...it is a Soviet design originally intended for photographing oscilloscope displays. Here is a concise discussion of the Helios 40 series:

Dante Stella

and here is an extensive thread discussing Helios series lenses in general and the relation to the Zeiss Biotar designs:

Wow, long time no see, everyone.
First image was taken with a Helios 44-2 and the second with an Industar 61 L/Z and a yellow lens filter. Done waaaaay back in October.

Great shots! Especially impressive that you got such sharp bird shots from a manual lens but I guess that was all people did back in "the day."

Thanks, It wasn't that difficult but it does need a little practice...not much. I use this photostocks which I converted to fire electronically.

Superb!
Ditto. Great moment of innocence.

Also I love those photo snipers. How did you do the electronic conversion? That's an accessory I think would be "cool" to have but I'm not sure how often I would use it.

Thanks.

It could be done in various ways.
If you take the stock apart you can tell where and what is possible. On my push button I did it slightly in a crude way but it works excellent.
I cut off the trigger guard with dremmel, drilled a hole from the front of the grip and mounted push-button trough it (where it's soldered to shutter cable).
Here's a photo with grip panels removed.


The second has push button attached to trigger linkage and once the trigger is pulled the internal part of the trigger with the button attached presses up on the upper plate (where original camera shutter release pit was).

If you do use it in public, makes sure to tape some yellow or bright colored tape on the end of the lens (hood). From my experience with this in the park nearly everyone knew what it was (camera) and it does get much attention as in Wow! That is Awesome! How much did that run you? How far can you see in that? What a cool camera! Are pro etc.....Point being no one actually said anything it being a weapon or freak out, ran for the hills etc,
contrary to what you read on Internet on what some speculate.
