Hello

 

My Dad was a gunner in a TBM Avenger during the War. If I can get him to a working computer someday, I think I'll have to show him this page.

Thanks

If it hadn't been for Jerry I would have missed this thread entirely. It's awesome. i love it. I only collect WWII Naval aviation gear and i must say my collection is nowhere close to what some of you guys have.

I tend to collect only named stuff that can be researched but it's great to have the whole outfit as well.

I can still kick myself for selling my US Navy marked Victory 38 several years ago but there still has to be more out there and I'm willing to pay the price to get one. Thanks for verifying my USN 38 pouch and I figured you probably had one but because the Navy didn't date gear it's hard to authenticate naval aviation gear and the only thing a collector can do is have pictures of naval aviators in WW II wearing the gear or depend on other collectors who got items from WW II veterans that only served in naval aviation in WW II and brought the items home.

I'm still looking for you a WW II USN pilots Penlight like I sold a few months back.

Hi Mike!

Yes the sold the .38 with Navy stamp was a big mistake :) But I can only dream about it here where I live :((( that is

 

Good point about Naval stuff.. sometimes it is hard to say about items: WW2 or post war but also a good source of information are Naval Aviation News from WW2... they shows a lot of new items used in WW2 by Naval Aviator like: penlight and some of survival stuff...

Btw. I never seen the photo with this .38 pouch in use... only one from 50's but sure sure it is WW2 item!

I will be very grateful about USN penlight:)!!!

 

The best regards,

Jerry K.

I just looked in my record book of items sold and I see I sold the USN marked Victory 38 Pistol along with the WW II USN marked shoulder holster, together, for $585 plus shipping and that was probably 10 plus years ago years ago and I had only paid $115 for the Victory 38 pistol several years before that because they weren't expensive back then when my friend found it and bought it for me at a gun show in Oregon. I know the victory 38's probably going to cost me 5 or 6 hundred dollars now if I can even find one.

Good morning Mike.

 

wow 585 is not bad for .38 Navy marked... even Im dont thinking about 115:) It was a great time to collect militaria!!!

 

now It is very hard to find this revolver even in USA I guess...

maybe it is possible to find damaged revolver only to put in holster for display:)

 

the 5-6 hundred $$$ is totaly not for my pocket now :((((

 

Thanks for good input to the thread,

Regards,

Jerry K.

Jerry,

 

FWIW, what I did to get a displayable "Victory Model" was to purchase one of the 5" barreled .38 S&W VM's sold to the British under Lend Lease. A ton of these came into the US a few years ago. It was totally beat to snot and I wouldn't have dared trying to shoot it. I had a friend cut the barrel down to 4", re-crown it and then re-solder the front sight onto the barrel. I then removed the firing pin and "Super Glued" empty cartridge cases into the cylinder so ammunition could not be loaded. That left me with a pistol that I could put out on display with no fear of someone stealing it and using it.
