    We Americans just love that shiny stuff!!!!! But keep in mind that to nickle plate, they put a plate of copper first and then the nickle is applied. Cleaners like Hoppes#9 will eat copper. Even though It is like a cologne to me. keep it away from that nickel plate when cleaning. It will make it bubble and peel!
    If I got that at 15 I would be popping more nuts than primers.

Dad was 94th Saar Mosle triangle 1945. My time was with 5th army and TRADOC thanks for sharing.
