    No expert on Luger holsters but WWI holsters were brown so this one was dyed later for WWII use. No idea what that does to value. Good condition holsters can go from $100-$300 pretty easily. I...

    I'm not sure where mine is at so I can't look but I'm thinking you put the end of the sling with the button through the rear swivel and then put the button through the hole. I usually do it so the...

    I paid $130.00. Based the purchase on a $160.00 one I saw that sold years ago that was in worse condition. I saw the other prices after I got it home. I can find things on my computer I can't on...

    Don't tell the wife, she thought I was joking when I said I needed to find the gun now.

    My weird collection just got weirder today. Spotted this in an antique flea market and after figuring out what it was decided I had to keep it. Now I have to find the matching machine gun. LOL. ...

    That one seems a good possibility and does seem to be available in limited numbers. The MAC Mle 1950 might be a better option but I'm not even sure if these are on the surplus market yet.

    German M34 Civic Helmet

    Not a combat helmet but still pretty cool. Mike found this one for me. I can't find any markings on the interior. I don't exactly know where to look and I don't think they all were marked. Could...

    Wow, that doesn't sound right. It's a Federal offense to open someone else's mail even if mis-delivered. You must have a crappy post office.

    Anyway, I got an update a few minutes ago. The...

    Hasn't been mis-delivered as of yet. They simply don't show where it is. It left Miami, that's as far as the tracking goes.

    Still pretty sure it's standard French Infantry. The emblem on an FFL has a hollow center and the side buttons actually say Legion along with something I can't make out on them.

    I can't say, I've learned some but not all. This is a junior lieutenants cap. Could be infantry, could be Foreign Legion I guess. The one gold band at the top denotes the rank. A full lieutenant...
