    Cupal GAB maker ?

    I have have just acquired this rather nice cupal GAB.Weighs in at 15.4 g.Cant seem to match it to any know makers in my reference book so if any one has a suggestion please let me know or will just label it as an unknown maker.

    A fine original cupal GAB in excellent condition.
    Maker of these is still unknown…
    Great addition!

      Hi Troy,


      I can only agree with Jelle, nice original Cupal GAB by a still unknown maker. I suspect the maker is someone we are well familiar with in our hobby based on the volume of these GABs they pumped out, but unfortunately not enough evidence to solidly tie it to a maker.

      If it doesn't have a hinge and catch, I'm not interested......well, maybe a little

        Hi Troy,

        There is some circumstantia evidence to support these Cupal GAB may have been made by F&BL, here is a good discovery thread from Giel where we discussed these:

        Here is my Cupal GAB, picked up at the MAX show a year ago.

          Hi Tom, thank you for the link .Quite an interesting debate put forward and based upon Giels theory and your own comments I'm inclined to agree.The F&BL set up certainly makes sense and rules out other GAB producers with their own particular hardware signature .Quite a good piece of detective work and although not conclusive the evidence is strong.

          Lovely GAB and identical to the one I now own.

          Thanks once again
