I set up my display "US Military Rifle Grenades and Rifle Grenade Launchers, WWI to Vietnam" at the 2011 OGCA Display Show last month. It was a lot of work but also great fun. I was very honored to win the Best Educational Award and the Member's Choice Award.

Your display is premo! The best display in regards to US rifle grenades and launchers I have ever seen, FANTASTIC! :w00t:
I also love the M-79 and it's different rounds in the case!

BTW if you have a m8 grenade launcher fot the M1 carbine you wouldn't mind selling, I would be very interested in buying one for my carbine collection.

I just found this thread through a search, and I'm glad I did. Displays like this remind me that I'm not crazy for seeking variations of the same item. When they can be assembled and displayed like this, they serve a great educational purpose. Thanks for posting photos of this... It is fantastic.

Fantistic display. No wonder I can't find any launchers at shows anymore. :crying: Ray
