    My Sarco band saw cut M1917A1 tripod set

    I received my "kit" from Sarco this past week. I went with the band saw cut socket set instead of the torch cut socket set. I am pleased with what I received. I'm saving about $1200 dollars going this route, instead of buying a complete non demilled setup. (Plus or minus depending on current market value) so if you are thinking about pulling the trigger on one, this is what to expect from the band cut demilled socket sets.511381033.jpg

    If you leave two US Army Privates in a locked room with two steel beams ...alone for a few hours. Come back to check on them, one steel beam will be broken...the other missing..and both Privates have zero clues as to what happened to the steel beams.

    Thanks for the pics, I've been very curious what this item would really look like.

    Every time I see these demilled Tripods and Mounts...I think the perpetrators should be rounded up and punished for their "Post War Crimes." There'll be no Justice until the last one is hunted down...and tried.

    You can thank Hitlery she had a big part in this back in '94 along with destroying some very rare tora tora mounts and true 1917 tripods! The word that comes to mind is Biotch

    Well you can't blame her for all of them. Back in about 1985 I was in a warehouse crawling around on top of a 10+ foot tall pile of cut 1917A1 tripods. There was way over 500 of them according to the owner. Coulda been some 1917's in there too, but I didn't know the difference back then.

    Congrats on your purchase. It will be a sweet setup once completed.
