    Sometimes, you just get lucky!!!!  There's still stuff out there guys....keep digging....

    A bit chalky from oxidation during storage but they should clean up nicely.

    they're a nice find, are they specific to Hurricane's with this set up, or used on other things to

    The AH2040 grips made by Canadian Car & Foundry were made for the Hurricane. Grips without the brake lever and guide were for the Harvard.

    Sorry, not for sale at this time. They're just too difficult to find.

    Rob, interesting items for sure.... are you planning to build a Hurricane from parts? Reminds me of the Johnny Cash song "One Piece at a Time"

    I did not know that the Harvard had a gun, I thought it was a trainer.

    All the Harvard spade grips I've seen had a trigger. The aircraft could accommodate up to three machineguns.
