    Hi Gary, that look excellent. Nice item. I think these got used by the Pathfinders etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    Yes that is correct. This is the only complete one I've ever seen outside of a book. I do still need to find an original manual however....so it's not quite complete

    Cheers

    Howdy Gary,

    You are missing the butt stock handle. I am missing the manual too! I will try to post pictures from this coming weekend. We are have a display at the ISRA Open House in Kankakee, Illinois.

    What size batteries did you put in there? Looks like D fit.

    Howdy,

    I had put 3 Energizer d cells, but it looks like it take 5 and I didn't have 5. I don't think they were that sofisticated to have anything higher than 1.5 volts. I will try it out and let you know.

    Howdy Monster,

    How much do you want for it? I got into a bidding war with a fellow from E-Bay and purchased this one for way too much money. But I had to have it. The fellow, who was killed the day I was borned(june 1944) was a Pathfinder 506th PIR, 101st Airborne. My email adrress is jkrzos@outdrs.net. Send me a price & pictures and we'll make adeal.

    Cricketchris- Dcells work and I put coppertops in it.

    Hi John,

    No, I have the handle as well. I just didn't mount it for the pictures. And yes I used regular D size batteries.


    Cheers
