Since it appears that I have the only remaining M5A1 handcart, I figured I had better make the gun and tripod brackets for it. Originals will most likely never turn up. These were scaled up off of the few photos of M5A1 carts that exist. They took about a month in my spare time. I hope you guys enjoy them!

The gun is an older dummy, non-firing model. Made from many original parts, though.

Looks pretty good. Would have taken me a month just to think about it and two years to complete.
