I'd have to wear an eyepatch and a hook on my arm.
Looks like m42 mount?
I like that it breaks down to 2 parts.

Looks like an old Soviet MANPAD. I wonder if there's a shoulder-mount included?

hahaha, almost 2.5 feet long and 5 inches wide... the Q would look like a piece of dust attached to this... but for the price could still be worth a try

Anyone ever tried a Q on one of these?

Assuming one can even be found...

There isn't even a review in the database. And only 1 review of the later Tele-Takumar.

The 800mm is one I would not have bid on during my buying on eBay days. The pictures shown by the seller do not even show it with the caps off the end - no chance to evaluate whether there is damage etc at all. I it is good the seller is short-changing themselves.
