Top Gun Reversible Feed Sniper 1

2012-9-25-revsible-feed-sniper-1-part-2

Here are a few more shots of the same Sniper 1 posted yesterday.

A couple of unique features on this Sniper 1 are the reversible feedneck, no screw holes for a sight rail, the obvious Top Gun engraving and the R stamp infront of the serial.

The body is in nice condition though which is a little odd for what was most likely a rental marker?

In a few emails I exchanged with Mike Galvin today he remembers several reversible feed Sniper 1’s in Top Gun’s fleet.
“We did in fact have some rentals with the reversible feed necks, as well as some .62 caliber snipers as well. I want to say we had between 6 and 12 all together. “

Galvin also remembers the reason reversible feed guns were a poor choice for rentals:
“We did have some of [the reversible feed Sniper 1s] as rentals. They weren’t a good choice for rental markers. People were animals on the equipment and the feed necks would break off or the screws would become loose during the games and the whole loader as well as the neck would fall off. So the short term fix was to have them welded or braised back onto the bodies.”
