Only one I know of who has one is Robert Segel of SAR. It was in the magazine over a year ago.
Armorer, I think he is talking about the WWI tripod, the 1917. Totally different animal than the 1917A1 pod. No parts available for these. Most were converted to accept 1917A1 cradles, but the socket and legs differ. I imagine all the original cradles were scrapped back in the 30s.
