    Default M-42 Barn or Shed find out of Russia

    Here is a M-42 I got from Stewarts militaria about 12 years ago Larry Stewart got in a batch the first batch was ok this one was used by a Russian farmer to feed his livestock it was covered in tar which I removed and the vents were filled in with lead. Which I removed I put some make shift rivets in it along with a liner missing band to fill it in. It has about 50% of Heer decal present. Some tar I could not get off the top. Anyway it makes a good shelf filler the manufacturing marks and lot no are not readable due to corrision. So here you go GreekMilitaria. timothy
