    Question Nice collection.

    You have some very nice items there gijunkman, British or not, well done!
    Although that 94 "Energa" Grenade looks decidedly like "issue" over here many moons ago.

    Smile Thanks All

    I've been collecting since I was in high school. Have had lots of stuff come and go over the last 20 or so years. The M29 "Energa" was a flea market find about 8 years ago, I paid $50 for it then and see lesser examples go for much more now. I have to admit that I probably have as much money tied up in books though.

    Nice collection! I especially like the grenade launchers, the top M7 does it have the coil spring or the earlier version with the removable nut, I can't tell. The Vitamin pills are nice too, where on earth did you find two boxes of them? I need to get some of them for my collection, nice assortment of blanks too!

    Here's some of mine. The M7 on the far right is a S. Vietnamese sung phung lu dan 03/03A3 launcher.



    Please overlook the improper GL blanks in this pic, I don't know what I was thinking.

    My M7 is the later type with the coil spring. Its made by IBM with AH Xed out on it. Some of my booster carts. I got off Auction Arms, I found some loose ones at the last Michigan Arms Collectors show down in Novi and just picked up a sealed packet of two boxes out of a spam can of launcher carts. a while ago.

    I pick up launcher carts. when ever I find them so that part of my collection is constantly growing.
    I need to find an M8 and an M76 like you have. I sold off my '03 and my M1917 rifles in favor of M1's so I haven't looked for a launcher for one of them. The S. Vietnamese conversion is cool though, where'd you get that?
    ps. Nice rifles by the way, Is your pistol an M1917 S&W? I had a colt M1917 many years and one wife ago.

    I got the Vietnamese GL off of gunbroker about five or six years ago, the only other one i've seen was in Brophy's springfield 1903 book, they come up for auction every now and then but are always fakes without the markings. The pistol is a S&W victory model 38 although I do have a smith 1917 as well. You got those blanks at the MAC show? Thats cool, I'll have to look harder at the next one, I think its comming up next month.
