Finally saw some Russian rangefinders today

My local camera store has two on consignment a Fed5c I think with the original box and some other wierd camera, both rangefinders. Both had rangefinder issues one was hard to look thru nothing focused, the other the patch was mis aligned...I did not try anything else. They sure are some ugly cameras.
I have never seen any Russian stuff locally before. Here it is GSN and GIII country.

Rob, it's not polite to point out how other people's kids are ugly.. even if everybody knows it's true
