B. Nickel, who was an engineer at the Zeiss Jena plant during World War II, was picked up by a U.S. rescue team when the Russians invaded Germany. The optical engineering design in Supra telescopic sights is basically the same as in the Zeiss’s, with the addition Mr. Nickels improvements. All Nickel Supra scopes featured weatherproof alloy tubes for weight savings, ½ minute click adjustments, the choice of Crosswire, Post and Crosswire, Post and Crossbar, Tapered Post or 3 inch Dot reticles.
