M2 troop seat?
« on: January 27, 2020, 04:07:29 PM »
The M2 troop seat bottom behind the ammo locker (I think) has an angle iron that keeps the cushion from sliding back under the back rest. Anyone know the size and length of this angle? I just found the holes and finally figured out what they were for.

Here are couple of shots of mine as well, Barry. The material is 3/4" x 3/4" angle that looks to be about 16 ga., maybe a little thicker.





Interestingly, the other side on mine is welded on.
