Found in an Air Force depot in Denmark and bought by my Gun dealer mate. Bit too expensive for me I am afraid :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

An update...........
There were 20 of them!
The reason they got here to France was because a ( now ) Danish friend did all the hard work to get them h and so these are his payment....... One is an early production model which is Packetized, not blued and has an original Lyman site which I believe was modified at the US Government request to a cheaper version.

He has been asked to write an article for a Danish Collectors journal and has asked me to photograph them for it.
I just MIGHT get one of them at 'cost' price!!

ANYWAY, If anyone has any info that would be helpful in writing the article - history, use in training etc I would be most grateful. Any info would be credited - but in Danish :lol: :lol:
