    An old Brit back in uniform!

    First pic is what I bought, thinking it was US M26. After discovering it was not American, (and getting some VERY useful documents from a fellow BOCN member) came to the conclusion it was Probably an L2. Hard to tell , as frag coil was also inside practice L3 as well. Anyway, with this in mind I tried to properly outfit the chap. He's a far cry from original but at least he's not taken anymore for a Yank.

    It's the correct l25a6 fuze by the looks of it.

    Rick, I had bought an L3A2 from a guy on GUNBROKER & it had this fuse, (which I didn't know any better) was not correct, well screw weeks prior to getting this "M26" I replaced fuse on L3A2 with bolt s shown. Prior to VERY light coat OD, I coated the blue lever with clear laquer ( so later I can take off green to original blue is I need to. If you look at lever pic close you'll see the marking. L134A1. I don't even know what this goes on (please help) I'd of course like to put real marked up lever on it but...... Better than what WAS on it. On the lettering, I paint the lettering area yellow, then apply 1/4" vinyl Letters & paint OD green & remove vinyl. Hit it with a coat so semi-gloss lacquer to finish.

    I could make use of an L134A1 if anyone has a spare.
