Greetings Comrade! Straight from the now defunct Soviet Union storage bunkers, we have located a small number of DP-66M Russian military Geiger counters.
Used by Soviet troops during the height of the cold war, these 40+ year old units have been well preserved and are fully functional. Issued to troops, but collectable quality still, each Geiger counter kit comes inside a heavy duty wooden box with a main compartment for the detector and separate compartments for each accessory.
Components may vary slightly per kit, but most will include an optional extension arm for sweeping the ground or other objects with the detection head, plastic bags to wrap the detection head so as to keep it from water and soil contamination, headphones so unit can be used silently, inspection booklet with log entries, and an operators manual (in Russian) on how to test, operate, and maintain the unit.
Each DP-66M is constructed of Bakelite and mounted inside a heavy duty leather carrying case with included neck and shoulder straps. Audible tones as well as a moving needle on the backlit dial help the user understand the level of radiation that is being detected.
Units operate using two modern "D" size batteries, but include an original AC adaptor assembly (not for use with modern U.S. AC receptacles).
Carrying case includes a rubber handle and outside dimensions measure 14" Long X 10" Wide X 6.5" High and weighs 15.75 lbs.
These are a rare find and our limited supply won't last long. Get yours today before we have to say "Do Svidaniya" to them forever.
These are sold as collector pieces.
