Slowly Catching up to Smitty...
« on: December 17, 2017, 11:57:07 AM »
I finally acquired one of the "gems" that Smitty has in his collection - "the Pig"

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Picked it up on Friday from fellow reenactor F. Brian Mead of Hardscrabble Farm

http://www.hardscrabblefarm.com/

Dummy M60 was made some years ago by Joe Scheaffer in Atlanta - bipod legs work & feed tray opens; all metal construction & about as close as you're gonna get without owning a real one

Came w/ Spare barrel & spare barrel bag, bandoleer & 100rd dummy belt - Smitty, I'm catching up!

AATW!
