    Early Gas valve screw assemblies and Hardened gas locks for grenade launching

    Since grenade launching as been a theme for the last couple of days I thought I would add these early valve assemblies with the later hardened gas locks marked H and M. The four valves are all the early valve type (not poppet) with either hand or roll stamped markings, etc. S serifed, nonserifed, and BS. Also included are a couple of distance clamps that snap on the launcher tubes.

    Later in production they started including the typical Poppet Valve assembly in the boxes. This valve screw is marked PO. Here is a later production KM launcher with internals. For the purists, the box is still sealed, the contents shown are from an identical opened box.

        Curt,
        Thanks for posting these. May I ask what you believe the "H" locks would be worth?
        I was offered a couple and would like to pay the man fair market value.
        Also, please let me know if this thread is messed up in any way, as it looks normal on my end.
        Thanks,
        ---Brian

          Brian, I would think the H and M locks are worth the same. I have sold hundreds of unissued M marked locks for $19 each
