    Could you M1 collectors please give me an opinion on this M1.
    M1s are not my strong point but ive always wanted a WW2 example.
    Is it any good and is it WW2 or Vietnam era ?
    Thanks Mick

    Liner is good and the shell and straps are good, but it's a repaint inside and out

    Thanks for the quick reply Rene,
    I could probably live with the repaint,is it WW2 though.

    No worries
    Yes it's WW2 but the paint most likely is not, you can't better that liner though!

    Very good condition late ww2 liner.
    As already said, Early ww2 pot repainted more than once.
    Not a 100% sure on this but the pot chin strap looks later than when the pot was made as it looks like it has painted black steel hardware, I think early fixed bales had brass hard ware.
    Perhaps someone will correct me if I am wrong.
    The net looks very new as well.
    All the best with it anyway, whatever you decide.
    Best Regards
