Hi Robert I remembered one cool dude Torres was the drive of the M88 till I got my license. We had a lot of good times. He was going to be a mercenary when left the army. I to am into weapons my grandfather owned a gun shop and my mom was a national champion. I went to a German army base a train with them on all NATO weapons and qualified, love shoot always ready always packing. Later dude.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
