Does anyone have close up pictures of a M8 launcher from their collection?

TIA,

Hey everyone,

BF asked for some shots a while back and I while I am more than willing, I am not expedient nor sure of how to post pics. This was picked up several months back at a small military show in Huntsville - and yes the price is correct :) .

I have never seen one in real life. Are these so rare or am I just blind?

Here's one of the first pattern M8 carbine grenade launchers. It had a soild washer instead of the spring. The problem was that the end might would loosen up and come off so they designed the spring which held the gernade via friction. Ray
