  1. if the CO2 is depleted no problem...and most likely not a problem if filled...having said that the vast majority of sealed CO2 cartridges that I have handled...period cartridges, have bled out over time ...even though sealed I have shipped them in the past with no problems
  2. The a4 ...yellow group is a late war...late 44 harness...the a3 or an6513 would be good for earlier displays
  3. Thanks Phil !! There were different QAC harness' in WWII .....the red group refers to the quick attach harness (QAC) parachute the crews used...some crewmen in the multi engine aircraft used a harness that the parachute attached to. There were two different styles of attaching the pack to the harness...one style harness had D rings on the harness, and hooks on the parachute pack (red group), and the other style had the D rings on the parachute pack, with the hooks on the harness, (yellow group)...the color coding was to make sure you grabbed the correct pack that went with your harness... here are some examples from the 303rd BG page You're gonna need one for Uncle http://www.303rdbg.com/uniforms-gear7.html
