Kiev 4A rangefinder camera

I cannot get this great looking Kiev 4A to work. Releasing and adjusting the diaphragm is not possible. Maybe I am doing something wrong; I don’t know this type of camera well enough to have full knowledge on all it’s functions. However, focusing does run as it should and, as can be seen on the pictures, the overall cosmetic look is great. Only the bottom plate has a little scratch, nothing major. The rest is nearly perfect. Therefore, this Kiev 4A would certainly not be out of place in your collection!

The glass of the standard Jupiter-8m lens is clear, without any scratches. The lens number is 7607211. The camera number is 7602773.
