C3 I was thinking bolt action metallic Ctg. The Greene used a Perc. cap inside a cloth ctg. But that was not the question you asked.

And-


Did the US. Army ever issue a .32 Auto pistol? If so, to what group of service members?

One more question on the Springfield- and I am going to turn in-

Originally the 1903, later the 1903A1 (different stock) the 1903A3, simplified model, and the 1903A4 (sniper rifle) What was the 1903A2?

AND-

In what war was the first night vision device used on a rifle? What rifle?

Well, the 30-06 could not have been the first round for a rifle made in 1903, since it did not come along until 1906. First round was a round nosed, 220 gr load called the 30-03. (got 1 round in my collection- bit scarce)

And yes- the Colt Model 1903 .32 Smokeless Rimless was issued. In addition to certain used by OSS personnel, it was the official General Officer's sidearm. George Patton notwithstanding, when you made Brigader, you were issued a .32 with holster and belt, pistol engraved with our name. NRA museum in Fairfax has Eisenhower and MacAthur's .32s on display.

G'night kids- play nice, keep the TV down.
