Came Upon A Numrich Arms Catalog From 1973...

But the real kicker are the tin box cleaning kits (original 1921 surplus) with all the brushes, etc intact for a mere $10.00 each!!!
Tons of other great deals (Reisings for $175.00, etc). Pic on the back of catalog of President George Numrich and VP Ira Trast!!
I also have been looking for a J. Curtis Earl catalog and an original Auto=ordnance catalog that I have from the same year.....when I locate them I'll give you all some more to cry about!!
If we only knew!!!

The whereabouts of much of his collection I beleve is unknown, last time I checked.
In 1993 we corresponded, which was to be the last time before he passed. He still had one of the Reisings that were made to look like an MP40 (converted for the series COMBAT! and Rat Patrol). He wanted $1495 for it. If you look close enough on reruns of COMBAT!, you'll see 'em. The giveaway is that the mag and barrel are too short. Pretty ingenious Hollywood stuff there.
Anyway, he was an integral part of the Class III biz when he was around.
As far as those L Drums for $17.50: AAAAARRRGGGGHHH!!! Didn't buy those either. Can my foot reach my rear from here?

Ira Trast, the president of Numrich since 1974, should have been awarded the Frankenstein Trophy for manufacturing the mongrul 1927 A1 semi version.

Seems to me I saw that one sell a few years ago at auction for over a hundred grand??
But MGs weren't even legal back then in Minnesota (I should have accessorized!!) and I wasn't old enough to buy them at 16....
Better late than never!
