There is on of these on gunbroker...Can anybody advise what its worth...I have seen many of the "uncut" ones for sale for over a thousand. Wasn't sure how much work was involved and how much the parts would be.

demilled 1917 tripods

Not to dissuade you but the ones sarco has came from Nesard in the mid 1980's-- These were brand new or in excellent condition before they were cut up. There are several parts that were availiable NOS at the time; now those parts have been used up long ago. The yoke is a real problem to reweld most are brass-- Legs are a big problem also -- seems like they warp when welding-- Have a go at it; but to me the cost of welding machining and refinishing is too much and sometimes you see rewelds for sale for around $650.00 or less-- I saw it also; would rather buy another nice 1919 A4 tripod than that mess. IMHO.

I need one for a pedistal mount for a Recoilless on a Jeep

Its really not all that convienient to fire such a large gun so close to the ground off a M2 Tripod.... have one... All of the manuals recommend a 1917 mount on a pedistal to bolt to a M38A1C Jeepers.

Not all that long ago there was a 1917 tripod, uncut in excellent condition for $1,000 on this board. I saw it too late but i'd rather look for a deal like that than re-weld - lots of work.
