Picked this up over the weekend at the Show of Shows in Louisville. An accessory I had not really bothered to look for since I had been told I would never find one.

Very nice condition, do not believe it when people say you will never find something. I say if you are patient it will eventually come around (just might be expensive). Sometimes I don't see something for a few years and then all of a sudden you see two or three.

Thanks. A friend said he was bringing me a surprise to the show and he really surprised me with this.

Plumbers chain is still available in several sizes should you need any more links to put that back the way it should be for use. My local mom and pop hardware helped me out when I needed to replace the missing retainer chain on my WW1 steam chest.

Thanks for the tip. I believe I will have enough with links I have on a couple of extra jacket plugs.

Going through my collection of M1910 photos found this one showing a number of them on a work bench with the muzzle covers installed.

Good detail of a one piece cleaning rod as well.
