    Yes, we've had stuff the young will never know. Too bad, specially around my area.

    Nice early pics, the bottom pic has the E6 with a flush nut rear sight, grooved lower band rifle. Real light weight guys, all of them.

    Missed you by that much then, it probably was a weekday as it was travel on Army time... I'd have loved to seen Bannerman's, I have a book here that's their compiled sales catalogues. Real historic...

    That would have made for a good project during this past year. I too want to see fruition...the magazine fitment.

    Yes, first on the right, rear row, second man in center, a couple down front rank. Seems to be more than the M1910.

    I happened there at about 5PM and a half hour to closing. I'd been driving all day and missed the turn to take me west off the toll road so I took the next exit I could find...so the land of "Rip...

    Yes, well known to the shooters here. I see you're from "The Gonish"... Long time since I was there studying the bridge.

    I picked up a set of those at the PX in Ft Lewis in 1974, they must have made a huge stock of them...

    I get the impression they were living in some pretty primitive conditions there. Probably not many ironing boards or wash stands.

    I was there once, happened to be driving by because I missed an exit and got the chance to stop in. I remember where the racks of long guns were too...

    Boston?

    That confirms what I thought... 34th Infantry Division, United States Army in Ireland.

    Again, last pic looks like maybe one of the units posted to Ireland in '42? Real early issue M1s.

    I'm wondering if this may be a unit posted to Ireland in 1942? Right in the beginning...? Don't remember more...

    Yes, you're going to get the phone book once they see this post. It can get quite heated too... I can agree with using something for saddles, they too can be expensive and people wouldn't take the...

    At longer ranges it's called the cone of fire and beaten zone and all machine guns have it. I don't think the Bren threw them around too much even from the later barrels. It never had the...

    Well, not quite as useless as all that. If you mount the Bren on it's mount and you happen to be in a defensive position, this sight turns the gun position into a compass. You can record targets...

    It probably did go over but could have been withdrawn before they left Salisbury. Then they did all kinds of service after the fact. We just had a US collector showing his off with all it's US...

    Read one of the military pamphlets and you'll see exactly what they tell you about staying in shadows and such. It ain't like on television.

    Nice pieces in your US collection.

    Nice collection Paco, I carried FN as my service rifle for years so I'm pretty familiar with them too. The rest as illustrated, I've had most of it or shot it... We can't own any of it now. Nice...

    Those would be neat to see. The Japanese defense force was using them for a time weren't they also? Just like Germany?

    I don't think there have been any replacement stocks until very recently. We do have a forum member that reproduces them and another that can make certain hardware... The marks are just Dominion of...
