I made these on Memorial Day as a tribute.  My collection is not yet complete, and I think a collection never is complete.


















1942 m1 Garand with a 1990's .308 barrel; a 1936 s/27 RC k98; 1930 Tula 91/30 refurb.  The two helmets are from 1942.  Still collecting.  Need a Soviet helmet, among other things.


Enjoy.

A very nice display, that.  Now all you need is a Soviet helmet of the era.
Remember, 4 boxes keep us free: the soap box, ballot box, jury box, and cartridge box. Hate to say it but, way things have got to be, it seems we've pretty well used up the first 3.
PS: I make Yugoslav Pre-WWII M1924 type bayo frogs and rifle slings. PM me.

You know, those are danged pricey.  I've found some SSh 40's made in the early 50's in an Eastern Bloc country for affordable prices.  I will snag one while I shop for a 1942 version. (note to self: open Swiss bank account)

Reviews say it's a Czech M53 btw, but maybe close enough for your needs and relatively inexpensive ...

Hope this helps
