    Military Watches with Military Weapons

    I've taken a few glam shots of watches with some of my weapons. If this thread peaks any interest I'll post more over the next week in conjunction with my instagram. Currently looking to source a Vietnam Era watch to take a picture of with my XM177E2 replica. If anyone in the US would like to help with that, that would be appreciated though I believe my father has a Vietnam Era Hamilton.

    Very nice
    The M1917/P14 is a very popular rifle with shooters in the UK, on some days you see more of them on the range than SMLEs or No4s.
    I have been thinking of adding one to my collection. (Although a No5 and M1 are higher up the list).

    Interesting. I think it's very interesting to observe the shooting cultures of other countries. Being in the US, AR-15s are the most common rifle you'll see, i personally own 2 and a half. I have one setup with a night vision scope for slaying deer, i took a pic of it with a CWC g10 so standby for that.

    Tottaly illegal over here jared, we have one hour before sunrise and one hour after sunset to take a deer, without any NV equipment, I have a Swarovski scope on my rifle with an iluminated reticule so can see up to sunset, but after that it's a definite no no.

    Wow those are some pretty harsh hunting laws. In the US we mainly just have laws regarding seasons and we have pretty much a year round open season on Wild Hogs/Feral Pigs here in Texas. I'm not too sure of this, but im pretty sure you wont find strict hunting laws like you've described outside of very small or densely populated states.

    Here's my Windham WW-15 20"Government equipped with an AN/PVS-4 Starlight scope, Beretta M9 and CWC G10. Happy family.

    Oh yeah it is. It basically doubles the weight of the rifle. I kind of want to get a carry handle mount so i can mount it really high up for comedic effect. Stay tuned for more pictures and please feel free to contribute.

    22 years worth. Did 4 active duty the rest in the reserve retired from the navy in 2002. Got the 1911 due to it was the issued weapon they issued to us when I first went in. Later the sig then my last unit the beretta liked the 45 better than those 9 mm.

    For a second i thought that was an original STG44! Great pictures, especially love the No4. That's one of my dream rifles, I love Enfields. Finding .303 in the states is a bit of a chore and I'm holding off until I have the infrastructure in place to facilitate reloading.

    The No4 L8 is actually 7.62/.308
    It was a post war trials rifle prior to the introduction of the SLR L1A1
    The MOD wanted to see if they could convert .303 to .308. Most were destroyed with a few left in the Met Police arsenal as back up rifles (to this day apparently).
    They are rare but out there.
    It’s my favourite rifle.
    The StG44 is a fun plinker but it weighs a ton for a .22!

    P38 Mauser issued date 1943 about mint blueing like it was never used with a Hanhart 417 issued bund chronograph. When I moved to Montana some years ago issued weapons were easy to find at great prices and back then issued watches were easy to find on the net for great prices those days seem gone now. Wished I knew the story of the soldier who brought this back to the states there no import marks that were used after WW2 on imported surplus weapons so a war brought back weapon. My Dad had all kinds of stuff he brought back from WW2 Japanese swords and other stuff all lost in time wish I had a few of those things.

    The watch is not bad either! :)
