    British/US 81mm M821 metal crate w/tubes and round.

    Thanks to one of our members here who sold me the pristine metal case, Brit style US issue of 81mm mortar packaging, I am close to finishing this one out. 1) are the tubes positioned correctly? Seems I should cut some black foam for the ends, or not? Are the plastic tubes staggered mounted in the metal case? Can anyone supply a photo of an " as issued " opened crate? 2) I need some increment charges, the M821 as I understand uses "plastic looking doughnuts" on the fins as issued, does anyone know where I can find a few? Thanks in advance.

    I will keep it in this state( with full tubes) until some knowledgeable person ( or ex mortarman) can shed more light on the packaging. As I drag this stuff to shows, I strive to keep it in original condition.Ordnance packaging, to me, is as interesting as the ordnance itself....until I run out of room.
