When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
It's a double decal M40 which is a first red flag , in fact if you see that at a fair walk by briskly. (Unless you are really really experienced so far I know of only 5-6 original double decal M40's)
Leather and decals and painted name all bad.
All said with Frank and Ade.
