Real nice package! Neat to find it all together matching like that.
The last one I have seen for sale was 3 years ago. It was all matching #'s no spare mag and no holster. I believe it sold for $700ish. I don't follow them so that might not be a realistic price now days.
They made something around 300,000 of them.
Do you have any paperwork proving it was a bring back? Or did he just toss it in his duffel bag?
If you don't mind my asking, how much did you pay for it?
Thanks for the info! I don't have any paperwork...I think he just threw it in his dufflebag as you stated, or it disappeared over the last 60 years. His daughter didn't even know he had it until after he passed away...and her son found it and was playing with it!
As for what I paid...
