    Hi Kradman
    Thank you for your info, I think they are a bit "rare" the soldiers must have throwen them away, not having time to put them on and off

    They go rock hard with age. If you soak one in warm water for a while it will become pliable enough to put on a barrel.

    As Mark says but watch out - I soaked one in hot water to fit a mg42 muzzle and it locked on!!!
    You have to soak it again to remove it.
