George:
I am in awe. I didn't have any idea that anyone would have that many Artilleries and with all of that leather. I only have one 1916 DWM and it only has a holster. Of course I am very proud of it, but I will have to admit that I am a little jealous--well, maybe a lot.

Thanks for showing them.

Neil

Somewhere around here I have a later war LP08, non-fine tune front sight, DWM, complete rig with mag pouch, etc, but no snail drum stuff. Only one mag that matches the gun and also the stock matches the gun. Is it unusual to have matching mag. and stock on these?

David, among this group of twenty LP08's only one, the 1918, has both mag and stock matching.

Somehow "world class collection" just doesn't seem adequate enough.

George, I echo all of the above..If I could only find and afford a trommel mag box like yours! That would be the centerpiece of any collection.
