The Mir is analog Zorki -4 and is a development of the earlier Zorki cameras being themselves copies of the Leica II and III 35mm cameras. This mark was issued for the Soviet political propaganda (MIR on english is "Peace"). Made only from 1959 till 1961. For this period there were 156 229 cameras issued.
Many of the controls and much of the layout will be familiar to Leica screwmount users. The viewfinder is significantly brighter than a Leica screwmount and is coincident with the rangefinder. Above all, the film can be loaded, in daylight, with the ease and convenience of a modern 35mm camera - the entire back comes off! Your MIR uses Leica Thread Mount (LTM) screw threads, 39mm X 1mm. This allows you to use not only the lenses made in Russia for the Fed, Zorki, etc., but also other LTM lenses made by Nikon, Contax, Steinheil, and currently by Voigtlander, as well as Leica.
Caution: The shutter must be wound first, only then can you set the correct speed. Camera was painted by Russian handmaster and it is very NICE Popular rangefinder Russian Camera.
