    Bill Ricca historical research Pages

    I read some while ago that Bill Ricca was retiring and unfortunately I have yet to congratulate him and wish him best regards. However, in the interim I have used his historical pages and information regarding grenade launchers and M1icon Garand tools to identify pieces in my collection. I most recently went there last week as I wanted to double check some garand tools that I have had for awhile. When I went back today to document what I read, I noticed that the plug has been pulled and the pages no longer appear to be active. Unfortunately I didn't print the pages before they were taken down. Hopefully in the future he will allow someone to post his research pages to a forum as a sticky or buy them for the GCAicon or something. As were his forum comments, the information he provided in the pages was indispensable.

    You could try the Wayback Machine: Internet Archive: Wayback Machine

    Just type in Billricca.com and pick a day a year or so ago. You should be able to save the pages on your computer (Chrome: More Tools, save page as; Firefox: Save Page As; IE: File, Save as).

    Bill recently told me that his ISP lost a bunch of his pictures. Sad, a great guy, no better advocate for USGI.
