Re: Another one must have

here is a thought.. and a question. When I looked at the last TD I posted on GB, I thought it may be a VITA gun.. from the vitaphone company and later Warner Bros. and I have no idea when they were sold off.

I have a nice one I've kept, but it is marked VITA in a few places, and has the WB on the stock in a few others. As a Hollywood prop I kept it as I know what it is, now what it is worth I do not. They did a reasonable job in making them up, I wonder what John Wayne movies it saw action in?

A lot of re-enactors still use these guns as they were the ones that snapped them up when WB sold off their "arms rooms."

I know it saw something, but not the Custer Battle; unless it was the reenactment which it has seen a good number! ;) I think mine is a starred receiver too.
