OMG so awsome poratable NUKE, Yes. I wonder if that thing still fires.

I like the stock on that M21, it looks like a tigger stripe paint but in the back it looks like cobel stones. Either way I like it.

Thanks for the Pics.

Good Shooting.


Thanks from RandyB45

couple more pics

I think the pistol is a cz56?? I may be wrong, poor short term memory. was in same display as the m21. The last pic is of a piece of armor that was hit with a projectile that became embedded in it. I love that display and I always stand there for 10 minutes staring at it when I get to the museum. Pretty damn cool....imagine sitting on the other side of that! one pic of a diorama on roman siege warfare...forgot the name of the siege. various pikes, notice 1903 rod bayonet....about 25 grand on todays market.

Sweet pics. Nothing's more cool than a stock M-14; its mere presence alone projects its power...

This past weekend My family and I went to the West Point Museum.

I just thought I'd share some pics for those interested. Got a few of the XM-21 including the reciever marks as well as a ton of other weapons including some of Hitler & Goerings confiscated personal pieces.

Enjoy.

If you can ever get there , the museum at the Springfield Armory is outstanding and worth the time.
