some thing a little newer, mid 1980s. stinger... dummy/ trainer.
this is what the afgans used to take down Russian helicopters; which we (cia) gave them.
after the russian left ,we had to buy them back !!
2 were unaccounted for , one was sold to china ,the other sold to russia.

just part of the collection. and yes I do own daggers too.

Thank you gents ! it's only large.... 1) because I get lucky 2)my father was a collector (minor before I was born) ,so it was always around me. 3) brought home my first items = 3 m65 jackets from the viet nam vet tossing them out , When I was 6 !!
4) I'm not specific into one era or country. own items from the civil war through today . prefer u.s & german ww2 ,And viet nam war .
not all is in the best condition, ect.
5) people know this is what I buy, so others see stuff & let me know.
7) when I go out and about ...wearing a ww2 Ike jacket always helps spark up a conversation (or other items). has helped me buy stuff !

I actually own 11 k98s , at least half came to me ,via others . I did not even have to leave my house to add them to the collection. just let a few know that was what I was looking to buy.
was easy, seems most "collectors" these days want to be mini dealers.
I have gear , uniforms, ect. in boxes that has not seen the light of day in years. I rarely sell anything.
thank you for your comments !! sorry for the so-so photos.one day great photos , next day all junk (bad lighting too.)

see Larry ,I collect more than just daggers ,or make case for them.
I have other items but, the receivers are still cut up , so don't look so good in photos.
yep , I know many collections that went by by after divorces.
I've been told to just open a museum, so I could view my collection.
