Various questions (T-37, M-84, grenade sight)
Mr. Ricca, I have some various questions for you.
Do you have any info on the history behind the development of the T-37 flash hider for the M-1 Garand? The Vortex thread I started had me thinking. The T-37 was the first prong type flash hider used by the military right? I know there was a prong hider for the BAR. Did this pre-date the T-37 or were they contemporaries?
My other question deals with the M-84 Scope. When the M-14 was initially fielded and developed, was this scope ever used on the M-14? Did they make a mount for it to fit, or did they just use 7/8 in rings?
Finally, was there a specific jig or tool used to locate the positioning of the metal backplate for the rifle grenade launcher for the M-14?
