I like very worn pieces that tell a story.
Here I have an Ontario M9 with the "old" handle and the M-9 mark. Made in 2000.
The M9 is in good condition but has been used and modified.
Over the Fastener a Sück bicycle hose was pushed. On the tube you can still "many" - I think for Germany - read.
Since I got this M9 here, I think it was modified in a US facility in Germany.
An additional black codura loop has been added to the back.
Were or are such modifications made indifidellally or via the armory?
