US M1 rifle/carbine grenade launcher sight M15

Postby muckaroon1960 » Sat Feb 29, 2020 9:10 pm

Still in its original wrapper this M1 rifle & carbine grenade launcher sight M15 is not that rare to find but still a nice addition to the collection. These were screwed to the side of the rifle and a launcher attachment was added to the muzzle to be able to launch a grenade with i assume a blank cartridge?
Not 100% sure about the OD pouch dated 1944. These sorts of things are heavily copied but the sight is 100% original and no i'm not going to open the packaging. :lol:
I've seen these on the market before so maybe an unissued job lot turned up in a warehouse somewhere and the pouch is original also?

I always wondered how these worked Paul, now I know. Certainly keep it in the packaging, it adds to the authenticity for sure.
