Default If there was a GI issued Carbine sniper in the 'Nam??

Well, I tried to imagine what they would do, given the equipment and techniques.

Redfield 4x7, shorter range adjustable scope. I anodized it OD Green, like the M40 sniper Redfield available during the same period.
Redfield T3 mount, available for the M3 sniper.

So, this is my M1 Carbine Short Range Sniper, and what parts they would have used. this is what I came up with. Whatta you think??

I like the scope mount especially, is it drilled to front receiver ring? Nice set up. How's it shoot?

Actually, no. This is Bavarian. not drilling it. I converted the rear screw hole to a set screw hole. The front of the mount "press fits". Nothing holding it in place except the spring pressure against the receiver. Just put it together, so have not shot it yet.

I just wish I had my M21. One of the most accurate rifles I've ever shot

I like it. Had never actually seen a mount like that before. Like to hear how it holds zero.

It's a copy of the T3 experimental receiver.

Default Where is "the Nam"

I was in II Corps in Vietnam in 66-67, never heard of "the Nam" maybe in Cambodia?

50K+ US died there and several hundred thousand Viets, it certainly deserves its proper name. No disrespect to you Toki, and I don't know if you served there, but I've always heard "the Nam" used by people who sat at home reading about it in the paper.

I am sure he didn't mean any disrespect DaveHH. A lot of our troops have served in places that were pronounced incorrectly by people that weren't there and it had nothing to do with being disrespectful.
