took basic at ft knox 1956 on a M47, left and went to Korea where they were using the m46, which was much like the 47 except it didn't have a range finding system instead a big long telescope which a good gunner could almost always get 1st round hits with out to about 1500 yards

Muzzle-brake is the same style as Jordanian M-47s... most were destroyed/captured during '67 war against IDF.
