Default Hard Drive dumpster diving

Was clearing out some accumulated stuff on my drives and rearranging a bit when I came across this oldie but goodie from the auctions a while back. Got to see this in person when I did a volunteer visit:


Sadly the old auctions are no longer available to view. Didn't get a change to see what it ultimately went for.

I'm guessing there was a fire.

I thought it was a trench rifle, for shooting out of a trench without exposing the shooter.

The American M3 and German M 44 had shoot around the conner barrels... germans had a Prism optic. This is just a Old 1917 that no one loved.
