Seeing how Brownells seems to be taking the gun industry by storm with their Retro Line, I think they should create a retro 1897 Trench Gun. I know companies (Norinco, etc) have cloned the 1897 in the past, but they did a poor job or are no longer imported. I’d pay probably $1000 for a reliable clone (heat shield, bayonet lug, slamfire capable, etc). So far, it seems like Brownells has been mostly true to original specs, their guns have received favorable reviews, and while their retro guns might be a couple hundred dollars more than a modern gun with similar capabilities, it beats paying a premium for a real McCoy or Frankensteining a bunch of old parts that you salvaged in hopes of making a respectable clone (at least in my opinion). Anyways, would anyone else be interested in an 1897 Trench Gun enter Brownells Retro Line?
