    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).

The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "

    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?
