    Navy Seal M76 and MAC 10

    Saw this brief shot on Prime TV series; Navy Seals America's Secret Warriors.

    Looks like a S&W 76 to me...(right pic)

    Poke around on the history of the S&W 76. It was designed (copied from Swedish K) and manufactured for the Navy Seals for use in Vietnam. Supposedly, the "T" prefix serial numbered guns, Tool room guns, were leftover from the Navy contract. 6000 regular production guns have the U prefix serial numbers.

    I believe Ferndog has written a book on the Smith 76 and several others as well. Is this accurate Frank?

    Hi Joe,

    Yes, I did the '76 book. I examined several S&W 76's and Swedish-Ks in the weapons vault at the Navy Yard in DC there were a number of '76s there with both T and U serial number prefixes. There are pictures of those NAVY guns and suppressors in the book.
