That is one ugly bird...
I would have thought the Adler would be slim after flying over the Hindukush Mountain range, but there you go
Ugly indeed, that bird is so fat there's barely room for it's beak...!
Is that really supposedly made to fool anyone, or simply one of the many $80 caps out there?
Gosh, that is awful indeed
The small local shows these days are SO bad. I've said it before but 90% of the WW2 items are really bad. I mean REALLY bad. Many of the "dealers" (and I use that word loosely) are totally ignorant and don't even know the items are bad. I don't have the energy anymore to even look at their tables or try to explain to them why.
I really only go these days to pick up and pay for items from a couple of the trustworthy dealers who send me pictures throughout the year.
It's funny... you go to the local shows, and these good dealers are selling stuff left and right (mostly small items - they hardly bring the higher end items to the shows) and the other tables are all quite like the western front. Hmmm...you would think they get the hint...
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
