    Crazier things have happened so I thought I'd ask. Does anyone just happen to have the box belonging to AF672? I'd love to find a way to reunite these two!

    As you can see, she's been hurt by other boxes, she needs to find her one true protector! (OK, OK probably too many "holiday" movies for one weekend!) :animlol:

    It'll be easier to find a series 1 box and do a reproduction label.

    But that lacks the "cool" factor of finding it :2gun:

    Actually, I had thought about reaching out to see if someone had found the right printer/label combination and just decided to make the ask "just in case". I do have a nice bullet box.

    don't give up hope though, I have matched 3 guns to original labeled boxes so far.

    Still hope to match the 4th (the gen1 19).

    In all instances I have had the box previous to getting the gun though. No better odds of that happening than the other way around, but it is curious that it has worked out that way.

    Yeah, but in reality, might be as close as you can get.

    And if you do a box with a repro label, and later find the right box, you've got an extra box to sell!

    Best of luck OP. Would love to find the original boxes to my AK and AL prefix gen 1 G17's as well.

    Maybe we need a big thread where everyone lists their orphaned case serial numbers. Rewards for facilitating the proper reunion. :)

    That is a crazy GREAT idea.
    I have several boxes that still labeled originally. In fact when I have made replacement labels I always maintained the original ones and applied the new ones on the other end.
    I would certainly contribute at least the first 2 letters and one number. Maybe 2 numbers.

    edit...
    I would certainly be willing to help a member get the original box back. All I would personally ask is to have it replaced with the same style box. I can then apply my own label.
