A friend of mine recently suffered the loss of a relative. He and his family are collecting all the deceased's gun stuff, categorizing it, and getting ready to sell it in order to offset funeral expenses. He called me today to take a look at what they dug up. In the pile of "stuff" was an M2 tripod like I never saw before. It has an aluminum tripod head and a pintle that utilizes a chain attached QD pin instead of a nut and bolt. The pin works exactly like an M35 tripod cross pin. Nobody knows where the tripod came from. I told my buddy it may have been a home made one-off. Whatever it is, it sure is unique. It is dirty as hell and we'll be cleaning it up, when we get a chance. After we get it presentable, I'll take some pictures. Has anyone ever heard of an M2 tripod like this? Oh yea, I almost forgot, the pile of stuff also included a BREN tripod. But, I haven't had the chance to look it over, yet.
