Which gun?

Postby The Baron » 22 May 2008 05:19

OK, this is bugging me, I've just gone through the whole archive and every single toy gun is named except for the one used by Beaver, Sparrowhawk and the SAS Attack Trooper.

Does anybody know what this gun is called, please?

its an american mp3 (grease gun) it also came with the american parachutist but in brown
it was a second world war machine gun and was cheap to produse like the sten gun it resembled a grease gun hence the nickname (grease gun among others)

Hey, sorry to be a bit pedantic, but it's actually M3 and not mp3, but it is the 'Grease Gun'. Here's a link to it on world.guns.ru.

It was also the first weapon used by Delta Force. Their founder (Charlie Beckwith) did a deal and got a job lot of them.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
