    MG Fire Simulator? Seen on eBay UK

    I haven't seen one of these before, what the vendor is claiming to be a MG fire simulator.

    I would have thought that another possibility for this item might be a variation of the gas warning rattle.

    Any thoughts?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Not a gas warning rattle. The gas warning rattle handle could be held in one hand while the rattle spun around it as seen on P. 384 of David Gordon's excellent "Equipment of the WWII Tommy".

    Yep, it's a 'Simulator, MG' There were a few different variations. Not quite as effective as the real thing I've been assured.....
