    Two Years in a Row

    October is the month for the displays at the WAC (Washington Arms Collectors) show.
    The objective is original items and informative to our members. This year included added items. Second scoped carbine, charts, Carbine with launcher attached, broken down carbine, some smaller items and more labeling.
    I was not able to attend because of health reasons. These pictures show the Super effort from my friend Tom Godwin. What to change for the trifecta next year?????
    Hope you enjoy them.

    I think that one and the one to it's right are GI Carbines showing what was typically done by new owners back in the day. It looks like the signs in front of them say, "Making it Shine" and "Sporterizing." - Bob

    Thumbs up

    Fantastic display there. Worthy of the First Place.

    It sure covers a lot of ground and answers a lot of questions
    regarding development and changes in the carbines and accessories history.

    Thanks

    As expected..
    Just a Beautiful Informative Historical Display.
    Would be very hard to pick my favorite featured item.
    I never knew the Carbine could launch a grenade out to 150 yards.
    Congratulations to you Jim and your friend Tom.
    Both your efforts are Greatly Appreciated.
