Thought Id post a few pic's...

Chenny - Bigalow

As I can find out:

Made 40,000 M9 & M9A1's

Production No. 200.001

They made bazookas from 1943 (month?) at 8,000 per month...

so....

I found this one 10 days ago, CB210XXX numbered so 2nd month?

Covered in a thick layer Black paint with 2 layers of paint 1st dark OD and 2nd light OD...

Day 1
Image

Day 10
Image

Image

Image

Note the brass parts
Image

Image

Trigger group, I have seen two types, manufacture diff. or period, or war time, post war?

Image

Any info to expand on what I know would be helpfull....

Add your M9A1 as well....
