  2. Funnily enough I'm pretty sure i see one of them in The Lanes Armoury in Brighton a few weeks back. May be worth a punt as they deal in historic artifacts genuine and rep.
     
  3. Give the gun shop at Bisley a call as well. They have a fully functional Vickers they use for Military open days so there bound to have some of these kicking about or may know somebody who would.
     
  4. South African. Ball ammo, SAM is the headstamp for the rds and that HS was 1961 onwards.

  5. Military ammo - it's a ******* basestamp.
     
  6. [spotter mode] Well at least that pic shows the proper colour of wartime armour. Well, between '42 and early '44 anyway. [/spotter mode]
     
  7. Originals aren't even vaguely rare.

    Try phoning a few surplus shops.
     
  8. That's true. I've got a couple that I use for storing odd bits and pieces in. They used to be de rigueur for range days, no-one running the range or coaching would be seen without one.
