photo (Above) M1A1 bazooka. Note that the "contact box" of the M1 bazooka has been replaced by the two small contact projections near the end of the tube. This is an early variant with two hand grips. Later M1A1 bazookas had only a single hand grip containing the trigger assembly. (Hayes Otoupalik Collection)
