PRE WWII MG MOUNT SOCKET

Post by RANGER »

Have one each NOS ORD 7772186, has two pins, no Locking Screw as on M-31 pedestal sockets. Would like to ID it before selling. This does not appear on any of the common WWII Pedestals.

Why do you think this socket is pre-war? The part number you supplied is far more similar to late-war and post-war numbers than early types. If it were a pre-war part, I would expect a "C" or "D" prefix followed by a 4 or 5 digit drawing number. Can you post or email me a photo? Thanks.
