    I have a magazine like that. On the bottom it says "Adventure Line M16 / M16A1 cal 5.56mm" and has the same aluminum follower.

    I thought Switzerland recently went California on gun control?
    I also have an Adventure Line, but itís a 30 rounder, with a plastic follower, it came with the SP1 I bought.



    Well I donít know about California, but yes we will have stricter gun laws soon, following the vote we had back in May.

    USA M1917 rifles (M1917 slings, during WWI), and;
    M1/M1A1 Thompson submachine guns (M1917 and M3 slings, during WWII).

    Most Kerr NoBuckl slings were khaki in color, although I suppose there may have been OD#7 ones made after 1942/43 for the Thompson (I know there were green Kerr NoBuckl slings, so I'm just guessing that they were post-42 manufacture, but they were also sold commercially and thus may have been available commercially into the 50s).

    Great pictures. Iím sure a lot of that finish wear is from the military cleaning regimen.

    Looks to be all original. Thanks for sharing the pictures, rifle dates to March 1973 give or take a month, Colt was delivering about 12,250 rifles a month at the time. Thats Ekie math.

    Some of that wear is astonishing.

    Great thread, pics, and rifle. About as cool of a rifle as one could find in my book.

    OP....can we get some pics of the xm177e2?
