Hard to find, but McGuire had it

It was fun finding this new, old stock Mk-356 Splicing tool to add to my Signal Corps collection. I can’t recall the last time I saw one NOS. McGuire surplus is an excellent source of genuine USGI surplus. Their accurate descriptions and good prices are second to none.
