Gunshow Finds -1 Known, the Other a Mystery


Well-Known Member
Hi guys, I picked up these two igniters over the weekend. I've id'd the bronze coloured one as a German Z.35. It is marked back-to-back R - 482-1938. The other one is a mystery. It has no markings on it. Any ideas? I'm still not sure why I bought them, I just couldn't resist:tinysmile_hmm_t2:

Nice s-mine igniter with shipping cap. The other igniter is American M6A1 for the same perpose as the other.

Not sure on the exchange rate these days with all the economic turmoil happening but usually s-min 35 igniters in mint condition fetch around 40-50 and the M6-A1 igniter from 5- 15. I would say you had a good deal.
The code RR on the fuze is for Richard Rinker if im correct?
It took me ages to find a good set like yours,well done Greg on a good pickup.


Thanks Waff, I have no buyers remorse. I NEVER see this kind of stuff at the shows. When I spoke with the guy who had them on his table, he was great, told me all about the German ingniter and even came back to later with a couple Elsie parts for FREE! Super nice guy:tinysmile_grin_t:
