I collect items from The Battle of Iwo Jima (1945).

Top Iwo Jima Items I'm Looking For:

1) IDed 5th MarDiv Corpsman Jumper or Forest Green Coat.

2) IDed Coast Guard Navy Jumper

3) IDed CB's Sea Bee's Navy Jumper

4) IDed 147th Infantry Regiment Army Service Coat

5) IDed 32nd ID Army Service Coat (Occupation Kyushu with 5th MarDiv).

I am always looking for named and dated WWII USMC Forest Green wool alpha jackets/coats from the 5th Marine Division or other units who participated in the battle.

The stock looks like what is referred to as a "Big Red." They were made by Winchester and are just beefier in areas. They are very comfortable to shoot, and in fact most competition shooters really love them. Nowadays they are getting harder to find and starting to command a little bit of a premium when you do find them.

 

Nice rifle!

Nice rifle!

That would account for why it was at Perry then. It is a nice stock. I do like the feel of this weapon when I fire it. Really looking forward to shooting it with the bipod now.

 

 

Nice looking rifle. Looks like you may have an early flat buckle sling on it.

Yes, it is, and if I wasn't so lazy right now, I would go look as opposed to guessing, but I think it is dated 62.

 

 

Great job. I have some nice pictures of M-14 in country with starlight scopes. I'll have the link for you in a minute.

Great, now I am going to have to find a Vietnam era suppressor for it, gee thanks ;)
