    They are not mine, just a pic I stumbled across. The bolt action is a 1893 Turkish Mauser and I think the yard rake was sold by Sears.
    But just think. Whoever made that Mauser into an SBR, had to pay more for the Tax Stamp then they did for the rifle.:confused:

    Gunny---Somehow I doubt the owner of that Mauser paid for an SBR Tax Stamp.

    US troops armed with Mosin M91 rifles. Most likely Remington or New England Westinghouse.

    That goofy 152 was a killing monster out as far as you could see them. Everything it fired other than canister had a butt load of HE in it. Actually, the canister was good to. It had 10,000 flechettes in it. Plus, the tube was big enough for the big bottle of booze.

    I came within a hair of buying a N.E.W. M91 once that had been converted to .30-06.....but it too rough and shady. The Bubba was strong with that one.....

    Most of those conversions were done by Bannerman.

    What about the Shillelagh missile it was supposed to use? Same gun on the Sheridan as the M-60A2, IIRC, and never really worked right.
    Random gun pic - does this pistol make my pistol look big?

    The M551 was a light vehicle and was prone to shock damage of the missile components. The M60A2 didn't have that problem. I never had a missile go wrong on me. I am one of the very, very few to actually fire a war shot missile at night under flare illumination at an armored target during a test of the technique. The missile sight did not have night capability so external illumination was necessary. That missile worked perfectly. I can say that the 8 lb Octol warhead at night was damned impressive.

    The only time I ever saw a missile guidance component get physically damaged on an M60A2 was the IR guidance box in another tank. The guidance box was in an armored box on top of the gun mantlet. That is the thing with what looks like a closed flapper just above the gun tube in the picture. The tank in question was doing a night 50 cal engagement. The limit switch that was supposed to stop the machine gun from depressing far enough to hit the tank just happened to fail. As the commander followed his target in the dark on passive sights, he depressed past the switch and engaged the top of his own missile box with API. From a range of three feet, that did the trick.

    In my stash of "stuff" I believe I have the perfect magazine pouch for that belt. I may have the correct canteen carrier, too, Just got through shifting storage units, so everything is simultaneous disarray, and recent remembrance, too (like finding the beginnings of KW era pistol belt, and have no idea why it is not complete.
