    Can't say I can help you on the decals Danny. I'm sure the guys will be around.

    I would suspect it is an ET or maybe a Quist. Still learning how to ID buy sight alone.

    Personally I would about face and double time outta there my son...... it all looks very contrived to me ( decal aging & 'halo'/ a "dusted" patina / rivets been played with on ( possible liner swap ) ... that sort of thing.....

    SS M-18 double decal, real or fake?

    bad decals. These are the same as on this one. So it's bad, as Danmark says walk away. Was hoping it might have a chance but it's not to be I'm afraid.

    Hi, as said, these are not genuine decals, and looking at the size of the vent hole over the party shield I am not even sure that it is an original shell that's been re-worked. Looks like aged Chinese rubbish to me. Leon.

    was going to say, i don't even like the shell

    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

    Agree with the others. Apart from the obviously cleaned areas around the decals being a huge red flag, the 'purely by chance' damage to the break area of the runic decal is too much to overlook.

    If it is cheap it could do as a filler in a collection but for me, I couldn't stand it.
