Houston and Dallas Texas Gunshow finds


#1

Any idea what the “rocket” with the blue base is? It has a hollow cavity for explosives and a live firing mechanism. It looks like a shotgun primer.

Who makes the puple/red 12.7x108 round? Here’s the headstamp:

Ohh yeah, found the IAA both and joined up finally. Nice guys.


#2

Did Brandon Luter have the booth with the IAA membership forms? He told me quite a few people have joined the IAA through him at some Texas gun shows.

Also, welcome to the IAA!


#3

The small 22mm rocket with blue tail is a sub cal projectile for the 81mm Mortar training device.

Regards Ozzi.

Jestertoo,

The headstamp you picture is typical Arabic and is possibly Egyptian, can’t tell for sure but is probably a 12.7x108mm cartridge.

Yup, Brandon I believe signed me up. Robert Newman hooked me up with the small caliber stuff.

Definitely an Egyptian 12.7, from 1971.
