Fantastic collection..some nice rare items.

Thanks! It took me a while to track some of them down. I think I hunted for the M17 for two years, and miraculously, I found both the M17 and M9a1 in the same weekend. I was stoked.

The m2a1 and m17 are really nice. Does your m17 have the internals? Also it appears your M2a1 has the set back band which is missing on many of them. Thank you for posting.

Yep, the band is present. I was happy when I found it together. :)

 

I have to check on the internals. Either the M17 or M9a1 has them but not both.

Great stuff, T. I am very impressed. Thanks for posting this so that the rest of us can enjoy and appreciate the group. I know how hard it is to assemble a collection like that. Well done.
