British PIAT

Post by m3a1 » September 28th, 2018, 5:51 pm

Stumbled onto a unicorn earlier in the week and brought home a PIAT and gentlemen, if a PIAT is a unicorn, the PIAT round is its huevos.

Sooooo....if you have an inert PIAT round or even an excellent reproduction and if you are willing to part with it, I am looking for one. None of the manufacturers on the other side of the pond are willing to send one over.

I am also seeking the spare parts roll, canvas gaiter (sleeve) and canvas for the buttstock....and again, reproductions of suitable quality are also OK.

Cheers,
TJ

What HAVEN'T you bought recently?!!! :roll: :twisted: :twisted: I will be talking to an old friend this weekend, he has "connections" :roll: :roll: and I will ask him. I would not get my hopes up. His connections are for more recent and modern stuff.

As my father always said, "Live in hope and die in prosperity."

Good quality reproductions of any of those items are always welcome. The PIAT is a rare thing to find on this side of the pond and like most rarities, there just isn't a whole lot of stuff out there to be had.

Cheers,
TJ

I saw him today and completely forgot. :roll: :oops: He was changing sights on five guns and we were resighting them so quite busy and I just forgot about it. I may or may not be buying an AK from him so I will be talking to him again soon.
