My bringback M48A

Post by M67 »

This rifle has special status and value for me.
It is a war trophy from 1991 in Slovenia. During he independence war the Slovene Teritorial Defence attacked Yugoslav Army weapon depot. The brave NCO made an explosion and a big part of army warehouses were destroyed. I picked up this rifle and later on I added all accessories: ammo pouches, full cleaning kit, nice untouchable bayonet, original Yugoslav Army manual and grenade launcher M60 for this rifle. In one Army barracks I got also an old M48 poster from fifties.

I am very happy when I touch this rifle.

I know, I'm joking.
Not big deal. I was just on the right time on the right place. I know a lot of people which they brought home a different war trophy. For example, my father in law brought M57 pistol in 1991.

That is very cool, how many people can say that they have a "War trophy" like that, the poster just adds to the already "Cool factor" of the rifle. You can just call me jealous, such an awesome collection/display!
