This is the Milbro I bought on Ebay after the upcoming fever for slinghsots. seems pretty close to the one I was to use in mid '60 but have no terms for comparimng except memory. Do you think is true or not? Ad eventually is it safe (well except for bands breaking
)

no collars or other, it was the bare fork. Mee too I don't see any difference with the one I had in may youthness ad that was absolutely authentic. It sounds good and it seems sufficiently old else if quite good condition. My doubt was just having read about so many fakes on ebay.
thanks for yours interest

I have been lucky enaught to buy another stated original, with still his wooden collecst and elastic, just now. So I am whayting untill it arrive from Uk and then will make a side by side comparison with the previous one. Milbro had been my first real strong catty in first mid of 1960 and still fascinate me tremendosuly. It is not as easy to use neither compared to dankungs (and I like classic cinese stile frames 120 mm hight and about 5 narrows) but is still a very good weapon. With havvy bands it is nearly impossible to hold it thumb up, while used betheen index and thumb require good skill to avoid forcks or (ahiii) fingers hitting. In few words it confirm the theory,: the smaller the frcatty the bigger the shooter's skill.

here it come. As said in the previous post I received the second milbro and I am rather shure this is 100/100 original cause of insurance of vendor, general condition, presence of the rubbers wich are just the same the one I had in my Youthess. Engraveing is different, but I learned on this forum milbro whent trough two or tree release in his commercial life, registered mark appear the same, but there is a huge difference. The last one I got, the one wich apperas way more oxidated, weights about the double of the first 100 grams and more against barely 50 on my chitchen balance, not counting the rubbers.
