After Three Years of Trying...


Recommended Posts

For the past three years I've been bidding on, and losing, every reasonably priced guncamera I have come across on E-Bay. That is, until recently...

 

First I was lucky enough to nab a US Navy N6A for under 14 dollars:

Yes, it's a little rough, but I was happy to have it after so many years of trying...

Then, a few days ago, I stumbled upon an auction where the seller had two USAAF GSAPs. Now, being the USAAF colelctor I am, I had to have one, but my fears of losing that chance led me to bid on both. Full well thinking I wouldn't get either one, I returned home from classes to discover that I had just won both!

One was manufactured by Morse, the other by Fairchild.

Yes, Mike, I'd be real interested in some film mags, one of the two I have is modern and the other has been modified for use as a view finder. Drop me a PM when you get the chance!

Sweet! Now all you need is the warbird to install them in. That combined with the road maps you have you'll be the terror of Post-War roadway!
