    Pitchfork combo, that is funny. Thanks for the laugh before work.

      • Gents, thanks for the input.

        I'm not an expert on these antiques. But comparing to other photos, it more closely resembles a Mark 1V.

        But there are questions, such as the additional bracing employed on the forward wood stock, as well as the the dual extensions (a locally adapted bayonet solution?)

        Also, the lever appears bent. The forward sights appear missing!

        I'm beginning to think the weapon was simply a prop used by the photographer at the time. But I can't say for sure.

        • Looks like this has lapsed, so I'll start a new one.

          Name the first weapon to exceed the speed of sound. It's a lot older than you think.

          • Three guesses:

            1.V1
            2.V2

                  • I haven't posted on this thread in a while-can I post one? Or maybe we can post multiple stuff at the same time...anyways here's one:

                    clue 1:Used by basically everyone
                    clue 2:Revolutionary

                    • A tongue? Does your 2nd clue, does that refer to the Revolutionary War or a revolutionary idea?
