I was thinking about posting that I finished a couple of pages about this chest and this topic showed up again.
I got the 49-1-82 chest from Uncle Dad. It's a very nice chest. The pages show what goes in the parts chest during different era's, and a list of spare parts in later SNL's that dont really show what specifiacly goes in the box. I think the WW11 era chest would have been the steel chest M5. So whatever spare parts you could cram in the box is fine.
Other opinions and information about these chests are welcome. If you can scan some info or if its not to long of a chapter type it and send it in an Email and I will get it on the webpage. Give you credit for whatever its worth.
Other pictures of M5 steel chests with different handles than mine would be nice.
Craig , great job on your site!! I would like to pester you a little about the gun record books you have. Is there any way to get a scan of the internal pages for reference and how large are the books since they are to be carried in the chest? Thanks for your assistance. Chris
Very nice website. I have an M4A1 handcart. I will get pics and info so if you want you can add it to your website if you want. A friend also has one and I will get his info also. I also have some original handcart pictures somewhere that I will get to you also. I have several variations of the M5 chest. One even has a steel handle and blue writing. I will get you some pictures of those as well.
Do you have any information on the M1 Armorers chest? I have two variations of this but no information on what goes into it. It is a very big box so a ton of stuff must be kept in it!
I will work on the info for the gun record book. They are about the aprox size when you blow them up on the screen. I will get an exact size.
Any information you send would be great. I have a few other things to to do ,but I was planning on doing a page on the M4/M4A1 carts. I though I was going to get my M4 cart done for the convention in MVPA convention in Oregon, but I will just have to be happy with the M1 mount/cart.
Thanks for the compliment. Might be able to get the cart done if I would get off the computer.
Do you know what the chest number is. This comes out of SNL B-16 1943, LIST OF ALL PARTS OF ARM LOCKER, ARM RACK, ARM REPAIR CHEST, AND PISTOL CLEANING KIT.
I think this is it. There is no picture in this SNL, but a list of items.
ARM REPAIR M1917 (20-20-19)
The chest I have says (I think..going from memory) "chest, armorers M1". It looks like a big metal tool box with a double sided lid. It has a top tray as big as the box and then is all just open underneath with no dividers. You can see where inside of the lid had a contents label, but it is long gone. I am assuming it must be for repair of many different weapons. I am just curious if anyone would have a list.
I am looking for a pic of the manufacture markings on the RHSP, particularly the Rock Island Arsenal flavor. I have a blank sideplate that I would like to have engraved with that for an Izzy build I am working on. I searched the googles and could not really find anything like that. Any help...
Hello all. I'm new to the 1919 world but I am looking to build a semi 30-06 1919a6 with all USGI parts (or as close as possible) to fill out my WWII collection. I have a few questions that hopefully the experts here can advise me on. What parts kit should I start from? I see Apex has A6 kits...
