  1. Where can I post the website if anyone would like to purchase?
  2. Here’s the lens painted and installed in my tube.
  3. Hi all, Does anyone need a replacement front clear LAW sight lens? I had a tube that was missing the lens, and had no luck finding a suitable replacement. So instead, I found a shop and and worked with them to recreate a replacement lens. I drew up the lens with the markings as a file and the shop did the rest. The lens has the markings laser engraved, you would need to paint in the red markings to complete. Take a look, and if you need one to complete your LAW tube, I can post a link to the shop. The lens cost $25, and I don’t profit from the sale. I’m just a collector and wanted to help
  4. Hi! It looks like an interesting rifle. Have you posted pics at the AR15 forum under “retro rifles”? I’d bet they’d like to see it too. Is there any color variation to the furniture? I know the early M16s often had “molted” looking plastics- black with swirls of brown in them that gave a sort of marble look to them. From the pics, yours look semi gloss black. Is your bolt carrier group silver?
  5. I’m loving this thread, with the vintage photos and all the stories. Please keep it going!
  6. Hi hbtcoveralls, Could you elaborate more on what you mean by complicated and difficult to service? I figured an English armored vehicle made from the 50s to the early 70s would be more elaborate to tinker with than a modern car, but I’d like to know more in detail, if you’d care to tell. I just discovered someone near to where I live just purchased a Ferret- I contacted him and he responded last evening, and we had a good chat. This is his first armored vehicle and he seems very open to me having a look around it, but being a newbie himself, he knows about as much as I do. Hopefully,
  7. Hello Max, and welcome to the forum. I’m new here too, but the members are very helpful and have a great deal of knowledge and information. We’d love to see what you’ve collected so far.
  8. Hi everyone! I wanted to start a topic on Ferret armored cars and hopefully hear from some owners about ownership, maintenance, and things like that. Ive long thought about buying one at some point, but I really would like to learn more about them first; its not like one can go to a dealership and try one out! Beyond things like jeeps and trucks, the Ferret seems like a more common military vehicle to own, as you can drive them legally on the street. But Id really like to hear from owners and get their impressions of Ferret ownership. Thank you!
  9. Thanks Martin! I just put that together, the case and shelves inside. I think it turned out decent. By the way, my Japanese grenade is missing the top cap and pin/pull string- if anyone has a line on where I could get those, it would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Hey- this is what I found: https://www.benning.army.mil/Garrison/TSC/Device.html
  11. That is a very neat find! I love how it’s stamped Ft Benning on the buttstock.
  12. Does anyone know what the M72A1 clear front sight looks like?
  13. There is a Model 100 smg model; it’s almost as rare as the real thing. A few weeks ago, there was an incomplete Type 100 parts kit that was on Gunbroker that I watched. I was missing a lot, including the magazine and a big portion of the receiver; it went for over $3500, and I wasn’t even entertaining bidding, because I knew it was going to be a lot. I’ve seen Type 99 machine gun dummys go for even more. The M3 Greasegun is a airsoft model made by ARES, it’s made of stamped metal and is really close to the real thing, including the bead weld the goes all the way around it. The MP40 is a MG
  14. Hey! I live north of Atlanta and would love to see the Cobra and Huey some time. The Cobras has always been my favorite helicopter. I live near Dobbins, and remember seeing the gray on gray newer Cobras overfly us from time to time.
