Nice stuff!! Just a couple of things and a suggestion. The revolver is a brazilian Army issue and the 30rds mag pouch maybe is for the M3 grease gun. Repark your M1911A1.

Hi
I know the M1917 is a Brazilian Army issue it is marked that way 1937. Not many US M1917 around in Canada but they were . The Thompson Pouchs are correct there was a similar three-cell pouches were made specifically for the M3.They were olive drab green in color.Yes I should re park the M1911A1 It is a all matching Ithaca that was buffed and blued before I got it.Any way they are all shooters and I use them however we are not allowed to take our Machine Guns out Shooting since 2004 I also have a MkII Bren Gun and a MkII Sten Gun.
Cheers

I like the how your M1911A1 looks with the buffed blued finish

reparkerizing will dull the markings and they wont look as sharp and clear, since it's already been refinished.

Dang, that is a shame you can't shoot your auto's! http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/pinch.gif It's legal and your legal to own it, it would seem to me that you could go to say, someone who has a few thousand acre ranch and blast out there. The flip to this is finding good shooting .303 anymore! I know much of what I have come across that has been loose (CMP) has been of click-bang a lot which really suck's. I still have three can's of sealed brit, one can belted vickers and the other two boxed ammo. All are SA make and everything I have opened has been great shooting stuff. Thanks for the nice pic's of your item's http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif .

Nice collection. Gun laws are soooo rediculous. At the very least you get to keep them and they didn't get cut up.
