I am far from the US paco...there are a few fellow filers here in the US, whose collections put mine to shame.

"Congratulations on the acquisition" my friend. It's been a long search and I am glad you were finally successful in locating one of the 18 examples that remain. We really do need to get together this Summer to get the trio reunited as it would make for a most interesting group photo.

Cheers

It was mine. Had to replace the long flashider with a new one as the original FH had a small bayo lug welded onto the original, likely to accommodate an L1A1 bayonet. Rick replaced it and it’s back to its original configuration 100%, he does fantastic work.
