Here is an excerpt from "Historical Record, Artillery Vehicle Department 1939-1942, Vol I" regarding manufacturing numbers at Rock Island Arsenal. There are several volumes to this "Record" that include manufacturing photos and tallys of what was manufactured during WWII. I thought folks here may find it interesting. This is from July 1, 1939 to October 31, 1942, Inclusive. A total of 14,157 tripod mounts were manufactured during that period at Rock Island Arsenal.









I have an excerpt of the report regarding BMG .30 cal manufacture during that time. Any interest in that being posted here on the forum?

Which Thread?

kkkriverrats
Which thread do you think the bmg manuf info should go? Misc Firearms? Open Talk? I have only just started wading through this huge report. We have seen it before (you and I) this is just a consolidation of info.

My DEWAT '17A1 came with an RIA tripod dated 1940.
