    Hi Guys.

    Here's one of my Korea issued M1's,this one is a late WW2 rear seam ,with bar-tacked chinstraps, in OD7,re-issued for use on Korea.

    The liner is a 50's issued CAPAC,and has the remenants of it's original owner's name ,scribed inside.

    as ever any comments are most welcome Wink
