I've checked armslist, gunbroker, gunsinternational, etc but can't find what I'm looking for in the $2000 range. Wife cock blocked me on a chance to get one from 1943 that was still in its original issue cosmoline in Monument half a year ago. That won't happen again. I'll get it and beg forgiveness, same as I do with my fishing gear!
My dad bought the one he fought with in WWII and Korea, but they burned when our house burned down in the 70's. Would have been nice to have had that since it had a personal connection.
Thanks for all the info, guys!
