Hi all,

Recently got hold of a very good repro 30 cal and it came with original T/E GEAR AND PINTAL I think? I have posted some pics to help, just want to make sure it's yank and wartime and NOT BRITISH and POST WAR!!!.

Cheers
Rob

The one thing that find odd is that the pintle sides have been welded. They were machined from solid so wouldn't have any weld. The pin, chain and ring look like the type on my 1917A1 tripod but they are found on the rear T&E mount not the pintle.

Hi m3bobby,

I thought that as well with regards to the weld, is it possible that it could it be a field repair?

Cheers
Rob

no matter what it may be it sure isnt the issued type....
sorry mate... have seen hundreds of them, physically touched dozens, in my time, even many with pins for the m1917, but nothing like that...
