  1. The fuse is original but the top cover isn't. There were two types of fuses for the MKI swivel spoon. One with side lugs and one without.
  2. The one sold on this forum recently was offered for $1450 I believe, with an OBO. I offered him $950 but he had already sold it for $800.
  3. Not sure where to put this post but I am sure someone will tell me if here is not the place. What's up with the Dupage Trading Co.? I placed an order on the 21st. and the funds were deducted from my bank account but I have not had any other communication from them. When I log into the Dupage web site the order shows "Processing". When I call I get a recording telling to leave my name and number. Customer service doesn't seem to be their strong suit.

  5. last one I sold for $450 I think. Prices are vastly over rated for T13's
  6. It doesn't show or doesn't have all the internals, also.
  7. There's a T13 Beano on eBay. Starting price is $4500. Wish I had more than one at that price. The seller does say Or Best Offer. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=beano+grenade&_sacat=0 Isn't the Capitalistic market place great?
  8. There are a bunch of early, pre 1910, M1905 bayonets and leather scabbards on GB. The same guy listed all of them. The cheapest is listed as $650. The bulk are listed at $799. There are also a couple M1904 hospital bolos on eBay right now. One pristine example both blade and scabbard for $799 and a lesser example of the same bolo for $499. I only wish these were realistic prices. I would be sitting on a small fortune! But my point is that these aren't realistic, IMHO. It's not a crime to list these items for ridiculous prices but it doesn't give a true picture to the 'would be" collector.
  9. Thanks firstflabn, that would seem to be it. The acronym was used in reference to an accessory to the M1903 Springfield rifle.
  10. Wasn't sure where to put this. I came across an acronym (SNL) with reference to U.S. military gear or equipment. Anyone know what it stands for? It's NOT, Saturday Night Live
  11. Didn't know they made them as l;ate as 1943.
  12. This is the seldom seen 4 snap action cover for the 1903 Springfield. Not to be confused with the 3 snap Enfield cover. https://www.ebay.com/itm/M1903-Springfield-Rifle-Action-Cover/401602839466?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  13. Well I guess I’m the odd man out because I don’t see the problem. The seller could have said NO outright and then you would have been completely out of luck. At least he gives you a chance if the knife doesn’t sell and, you could possibly get it for less than you offered if the auction runs it's course. I wonder how you might see this if you were the seller. I’ve sold things on eBay and had buyers offer 3 or 4 times what an item was worth just to be sure they got it and ask me to close the auction early. When I decline their offer and the item sells for far less than they initially offered,
  14. I carried one in Vietnam for a while. It would fire two consecutive rounds and then jam. Had the armorer look at it but it was never fixed. I got my M16 and never looked back. It appeared to be a glorified M1 with a box magazine and some cosmetic changes. The 7.62 NATO round is roughly equivalent to the 30-06 round the M1 used.
  15. Actually those pictures I got off the "WEB". I do not have that grenade and know nothing about it's history. It seemed to fulfill the original poster's request to see what was written on the grenade bodies.
