I wound up with an M2 50 BMG tripod. What the hell are these worth . I have no real use for it and it weighs a ton now as it did way back when Uncle sam had me playing with them.

Which one did you get? Is the data plate marked M3?

It's marked M3 and has an ANAD rebuild stamp on it now that I look.

your m3 tripod is worth $700 to $1000, possibly more depending on it's condition.

Well it's got some very light parker around it left and a fair bit of closet rash ( light fuzzy rust ) from being stored in a shed in West VA. I guess I'll drag it to knob creek in april and see what I can swap for it.

What m60 said. If it has the pintle and T&E ~$1000, without pintle and T&E ~$700

My friend thinks he still has the pintle - somewhere , but definately no T&E. Last T&E I had for a ma duece I got $100 and was glad to be rid of the dead weight. I'd trade this thing for 100 rds of 50 cal in a NY minute as it does me no good.

What flavor of 50 cal ammo would you like? To be fair I would give you 200 rounds of 50 cal ammo for it.
