I'd like to sell my pair of US Army field telephones, Model TA-312/PT. Both appear to be in excellent condition but I do not know if they function so they are sold "as is". One of the rubber covers for the talk button is damaged. I'm not familiar with US Army equipment so I'm guessing they are late WWII. Shipping cost will be based up buyer's address. Asking $100 for the pair.
Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.
These are actually Vietnam era and later but I will allow you to leave them as they are a piece of kit that (if they work) could support events. wW2 field phones were more rectangular and box like and were most often housed in leather. Late war they came in a heavy OD canvas.
One of the nice things about your field phones is they are powered by regular flash light batteries. Good luck with your offering. They are quite heavy as you know but having sold some myself, as I recall they just squeaze nicely in the US Post flat rate box.

Very nice field phones. I have a set myself, and they are indeed waterproof. I've accidentally gotten one soaked and it dried out and runs fine. Definitely one thing to jump on at this price!
Just so you all know, the proper field phone for US army in ww2 would be the EE-8a filed phone in the leather case. The EE-8b was the later war model in a OD-7 canvas case.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.

ajman: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
