    The annoying thing is that there’s some really good repro stuff out there. I bought a repro steel muzzle booster for the Browning .303 and it’s perfect even down to the tool marks. The only obvious thing is that there’s no ware or blob of weld for the fixing screw. Whenever I tell these people that they can get a very good repro for £50 and in my opinion, every bit as good as an original, they recoil in horror (pardon the pun).

    Yes, that case would be worth a pretty penny these days...

    Maybe someone will recognise a long unremarked upon pistol they inherited from a WW1 veteran and make the Mandalorians blaster pistol out of it. And while we are at lets start hacking up Bren guns.

    Compared to other cases seen, it is very well used, so I suspect it went overseas in WWI or WWII. No numbers visible funnily enough.

    The Canadianicon W&S scope pouches seem to be of very high quality that they could survive several hundred years of usage....

    They're made out of pretty thick leather.....from the days when things were made to last.

    REALLY sad. There was a major demand for those W&S scope cases after Star Wars came out...... looks like a set of Swissicon ammo pouches next to it maybe?
