Post war Souval LW PAB "25"..............
Gentlemen, a rather inexpensive addition to my Souval collection, a nice re-strike (some may say reproduction) LW PAB for 25 assaults..........mid production I would say early 1960's due to Souvals pin/hinge ans St u L type "C" catch....it is known that Souval did source parts from St u L later in his production........this is a nic3e die stamped version as opposed to die cast, the rear being smooth and devoid of pock marks etc, some of Souvals cast pieces are, well frankly awful !
Bought at a bargain price due to the number plaque missing............but I had one in my parts box, a "25" so with the aid of some acetone and super glue, problem fixed !
Love em or hate em, Souvals post war copies/repros/re-strikes call them what you will are becoming collectable in their own right.
Prost ! Steve.
