Thats the one! Thanks a bunch sir! IIRC the operator aint necessarily expose themselves to enemy fire when using it, correct?
Here is a pic of mine when I had it. Had the Lafette tripod with it as well as the optics. Still have the spare barrel carrier and some other misc. spare parts as well as belts of ammo and cans.

I had to go dig the pics out. It was killing me. Like I said that's one gun I miss. I'll get another one!

Mine was made by the maker "DOT" and was made in 1942.

Later, Frank

It’s called a lafette tripod. They are really hard to find, and when do you... they are crazy expensive.
The Post-war lafettes are still remarkably inexpensive, though prices for all tripods have gone crazy. Everyone wants them for dummy guns.

I spent a ton of time repairing a 1917 pint le and tripod that had been torch cut... 10 years or so ago. I thought I was nuts. Turned out to be the best time I ever spent.
