About a month ago I was offered a nice, British manufactured, 120MM L23A1 APFSDS-T projectile that I jumped on. I am guessing it was put together from fired components? Anyhow, upon receipt, I started to restore it. It was missing both its upper and lower bands and had a lot of paint scratches / blemishes. I was really lucky to have a friend in the UK who happened to have a brand new lower driving band for this round that he sent me.
AFTER RESTORATION ( Not sure what if anything I will do to repair the fin assembly) I kept the original stenciling and used a heavy duty ZIP TIE from Home Depot as the top band.
