Gents, I found this T&E with detachable mount.

I'm digging in surpus for years, I can't remember that I have seen these before.

Is this a WWII variation? Maybe it was made for some special purpose?

Thanks!

Best regards Tommy

Can't help you with your question, as I have no clue. Never seen one like that... But, if you want to sell it please let me know. 馃憤

Hey Tommy
I was joking. BA is Buffalo Arms. It鈥檚 a form of torture when it comes to the 1919. They marked every part of the gun during manufacturing. To my knowledge, they didn鈥檛 make T&Es, but other forum members like Russ (Toolman) would know.

It is WWII and no BA never made T&E assemblies. It is specifically a late war T&E pin but that could have been changed over the years.

Bill, OK haha luckily not. Thanks for explaining.

Russ, so the chained pin on top is late war? The T&E came in a pair, so what about this one? (that's all there was, the other ones have the casted mount)

Yes Tommy the cast pin was the earlier model but many have been replaced over the years and they both work the same just a different design. As the war progressed the made many changes for "ease of production" they just simplified what they could to get things out the door faster.

Thanks Russ, so the detachable mount is a stage of simplify production? I thought about that it might could be interchangeable between 30 and 50 cal. So that they had a 30 and 50 call mount which could be fitted on the T&E.

Yes this was one idea they played with and I had read an interesting article years ago on the variations they played with during this period. There were a few strange variations that never really went anywhere.
