MSWC with case and flares

Post by drysaltycrackers » Thu 20 Aug 2020, 19:06

Picked this up for $260. Don't have the flares with me, as the person wasn't willing to ship them, but was kind enough to drop them off at a relative's. Pretty poor shape, with the gun having some rust on it (but still functional) and the box having a slight crack in the side. Rust is mainly concentrated on the barrel. Not very familiar with American flare guns, so not too sure on how to properly remove the barrel. I assume the bigger screw is the pivot, but mine is stuck fast.

Despite the condition, you still did well. The flares alone are worth more than you paid.

I believe the case is Vietnam-era.

Very nice. I have not seen a cased set like this before.
