Try Sarco and Numrich...they usually carry some of those things. http://www.sarcoinc.com/1919a4.html item A4180 on the hose, the clamp comes on the hose.

Also, Rick at bmgparts has them and I can guarantee you a nice hose assembly for about the same price as Sarco's http://www.bmgparts.com/1917.html .

I'm not sure if you're collecting this stuff to just have it around for display or if perhaps you think you need it, but you don't need the condensing system. I quit hauling that stuff to the range and just leave the steam outlet open and let her steam...two liters of water will last me all day.

Hey gunranger, is your avatar from the Wild Bunch? That's a '28 C/B and I'd love to have that pic...can you possibly email it to me? [email protected]

I got the whole setup to finish the "LOOK" of teh 1917a1. I'll drag the hose and can to the range because the guys that shoot there havent seen anything like it in person and I just love the look of the whole outfit put togather. That sounded kinda gay didnt it, but oh well.

hose

Hey Lobo, I Tvoed the movie so I can look at the gun, and replay it over and over again, can't get enough. I didn't know Nose Gunner sent it to shots, but I was lucky enough to get it as an avitar, when Shots set up the new format. Scotty

Lobo,

The Wild Bunch was filmed back in 1968, in northern Mexico in a town called Paris not far from De Casa Medero. Several battles were fought here during the 1913 Revolution, which this movie is based on. As you can see from the dates the 1917A1 that was used in the climatic final scene was pure Hollywood fiction. Many years ago I acquired one of several 1917 tripods and its wood ammo box used in the film from the Stembridge rentals in Hollywood, it resides in my living room to this day.

Mark
