    WW2 M8 Rocket

    Hello everyone,
    My first post and I wanted to ask about the availablity of a WW2 M8 rocket to purchase for a display. I just wanted to see how difficult it would be to obtain one and what value it would have. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you! Andy

    I cannot recall any conversations or photos of these rockets on BOCN, and I have never seen one in my collecting activity. I would judge them to be very difficult to obtain.

    As M8owner says, the M8 fin-stabilized can be pretty tough. There are a few out there in collections, but I know of no one willing to part with theirs. You may want to look at the M16 (spin-stabilized), from the same era but a bit more common. Still pricey, but at least they can be found. (M8 top, M16 just below)
