I created this a few weeks ago, and it will hang on my wall from now on.
99% is 16th IR and one 26th IR DUI , otherwise i had no place for that.

Enjoy.

PS: Nothing is ID'd , so yes its a put together of original pieces.
Collar discs are screwback , 16IR DUI's are British made screw backs

Hi All,

Few weeks ago i was giving my bedroom a new color and floor so i had to totally reinstall everything.
I gave some things a permanent place so this is how it looks like.

Everything is original , except on the 101AB patches attached to the pole that holds the helmets.

No not at all , i think everyone inspires everyone in some way !
I just use a piece of tape wich i fold in a way that it sticks at both sides, it doesn't harm the patch at all .

Do you have any history on that 2nd Ranger liner? It seems like it'd have a good story to tell

Nope, no history attached to it . It came from a french speaking guy, thats all i could say.
It was overpainted post war, then somebody stripped it and the 2nd Rangers insiginia showed up

When i bought it , it was one big chunk of rust / earth , everything was blocked.
I stripped / torched / hammered it 100% and it is now in fully ' operational ' condition .
The operating rod goes all the way back with the bolt , and goes smoothly back to the front , only the spring is out of action.
It has some nice features on it , ill show pics soon.

Nice work getting it into shape then man, it looks to have come up very sweetly. The marked gas cylinder, not sure what that means, jump onto google and do a search for that number. I have never seen 1 marked there though, may well be a rarer piece to come across

Years ago i checked ebay for that part , it was worth more than i payed for the entire relic M1 :lol:
I will do a lookup for it.
The rear sight was not original on the relic , i bought it some time later for a verry good price..i guess i was lucky to find an early model.
