Plus one to what Kmot says. When my ship comes in I am going to give you a list and a blank check. I know I will be very happy with your work.

I forgot to make up the grenade launcher so I made one up this mourning, I found several different types and I like this one the best.

Just being a bit of the rivet counter, didn't the old MK-19's like in Vietnam use a pair of handles and a butterfly style trigger (like the .50 M-2)? I know the Mk-19 is partially based of the ma deuce action. She does look fantastic though.

That's not a Mk19 on the PBR model, it's a Mk18...

OH! thought the MK19's were that old Thanks. I did a quick wikisearch and found this but no mk-18, was this what we were both thinking of? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XM174_grenade_launcher decide to do a Google search and did find the Mk-18 (with the suffix mod 0, which is why I couldn't find it in wikipedia originally. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mk_18_M...enade_launcher http://www.securityarms.com/firearm/4570
This is not a m19 (or even a mk18) but it is a cool video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...93MiQrnUKYThat mumbling sound is me talking around my own foot in my mouth (and better yet on my 50th birthday today to demonstrate being senile!). Sorry bout that.
