M47 Dragon

I just took pics (I did not buy it) at Bloomsburg gun show.

I’d take it! I’d take it! (If someone gave me lots of money first, that is.)

I would have taken it also.

How much money would I have needed to take it home with me?

Sorry, did not ask for the price, probably $150 or more

It would be in my collection.

Don’t suppose you happen to have any contact information?

Sorry, did not think of that, will do next time, I was just guessing the price.

That would be great!

I am a very interested buyer.

Nice piece…

Really interesting piece. It would be nice to know the story behind it.

Pre M47 testing, 1966.


Looks like a field recovered piece, impact damage and all of the fins sheared off. You need to be careful of these “souvenirs” in that the guidance and sustainment motors often do not all burn during the flight. If they are capped the motor is still live and presents a hazard. You can see many of the expended motors in the picture, but all would need to be examined.
I’ve attached a photo of mine and the launcher, this example is a display piece that was never loaded, you can see the caps on the motor panels in the central body section.
