originals

ya the original A1's could be a health hazard. they were ok, but they were put into use "in theater" way too quickly and were not prepared to be used in the kind of environment that they went to. my dad did not want anything to do with the one they issued him in Viet Nam. Once they took a different approach to the problem, things went better. With the issue of the A2's things started working out.
That is a cool pic huh?

i am sure if you loaded a round in it, it would go bang! just wouldn't want to be the one pulling the trigger!
these are used to show soldiers, or anyone else for training, a simple way of seeing just how things work without having to tear it down.

Be cool to see if it would shoot a round or two.

these were done by the military for training, then used in museums

Almost all well known rifles and pistols by large military groups i.e. USA, Russia, Etc... Have cutaways to explain to the men and women how they work and what to clean. Can you fire them, NO as much as you see cutaway on the rifle the barrel is cut out as well. I have parts and pieces of cutaways, and all tell you not to even try to fire it.
