    vykkagur, if you look at the buttplate on that M10 .280 you will see the problem. The gloopy and flaking varnish is an irritant but the way that buttplate looks in that photo (which is not very...

    That is a lovely example! I have quite a few of these and most if not all of the 1915 dated ones saw service and show it, often then being traded to the British and reissued to Royal Marines. This...
