After a long and sometimes frustrating search I finally got my "D".

Now to wait for big Brown to deliver it.

Very nice MT, what era are we looking at here? The flash hider looks like something from the early M16 perhaps ?

Thanks everyone, it has been fun shifting the focus of my collection away from mostly Mosin's to sniper rifles.

The T37 flash suppressor was installed on these in the late 50's early 60's in place of the removable M2 flash suppressor which was thought to have possibly cause issues with accuracy.

Thanks everyone, been wanting one of these for a while now and finally can notch it off my list. Guess I am now going to see what I can find in a German High Turret sniper, :shock: or at least a high quality reproduction. :lol:
