They're basically Zorki-1 bodies and Industar-22 lenses with another 
engraving. They're still refurbished and modified to be sold as Leica copies 
with fancy colors, leathers and Wehrmacht engravings (often with ridiculous 
orthographic mistakes). Check it for light-tightness and rangefinder 
accuracy. The lens is, if you're lucky enough to get a good sample, 
astonishingly sharp. Check  for more informations 
about the Z-1.
