In the club about 2 weeks now.
Nice semi-restored condition.

Very Nice! Hope to get a World's Fair Someday. Never going to spend that cash on an Army/Navy. Here they are expensive!

yeah there's only a handful of Army/Navy machines out there and you have to be a special kind of collector to go for it. For the same price you can get 2 Stern LEs NIB.
When you're that level of collector, you just pay the price to play curator for a few yeas/decades until it's time to pass it onto the next.

Joined the Rockola "pinball" club recently. The rifle is a WWII M1 carbine manufactured by Rockola ten years after the World's Fair Jig-saw it rests upon in the photo. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly an American manufacturing company retooled from amusement devices to killing devices. Though the Rockola pinballs are a recent acquisition to me, this rifle was my grandfather's and thus is very dear to me.

It always shocks me too how quickly manufacturers switched it up, but I guess companies are set for building things and that's their specialty, not amusement machines per se.
Like think of the "war effort", how many companies switched from making ~whatever~ to making military supplies in WW1 and WW2.

Is there somewhere I can read more about this? I assume the other manufacturers followed suit?
