    90mm M71 Restoration

    One of the rounds I acquired some time back was an M71 HE that had been cut down by .875". Presumably it was for experimenting with a WP load and the booster adapter that entailed. I decided to restore it to its original length and profile by having a machinist friend make an extensive piece. First two pictures are of it prior to the extension piece, three and four with the ext. piece on and five is of the stampings. I plan on painting it in the HE color scheme since I don't want to re-stamp it with the WP nomenclature. Either that or paint it in the WP scheme and not bother with the stampings since it was an experimental round. If that, I have an M57 fuze that would be correct. Thoughts? Thanks, Bruce.
