MK79 Signal illumination Survival Kit

Im listing this as a favor for my girlfriends aunt, her husband passed away just around new years and she has been going through things..

She had given this to me tonight to see what I can do with it for myself.. Im not keeping this for myself and she has no use for it so I am posting it for sale and unknown to her, giving her any money made to help with bills (every bit counts)

This is a Survival tool/kit issued by the Navy to Airman in case of emergencies..

from the information I have been finding it is sort of a collectable among gun guys.. it can be used (service men still use this mounted on their weapons)
or collected..

info shows several people having sold these for 250 missing the plastic pouch and instructions (simple to use and figure out,) and with just three flares..

I have the two major components of the MK79 survival kit..

The MK30 Mod 0 Pencil type launcher

And

Seven MK80 Mod 0 screw in cartridges / Flares mounted in included bandolier.

This is not a weapon, it is a signaling device used by servicemen for and during rescue.

These were issued during Vietnam

picture of kit I have with me.Kit is in FANTASTIC shape for its age,sorry photos are from my phone.

Cartridges/flares are marked

with a white band around the cartridge at the bottom W/red letters CCC


info for kit..

MK 79, MOD 0 ILLUMINATION SIGNAL KIT The Mk 79 signal kit is supplied with one pencil-type launcher (Mk 31), seven Mk 80 screw- in cartridges, and a bandolier for storing the flares until use. Protective caps should be used over the primers of the cartridges when not using the bandolier



Figure 5-3.—Mk 79 Mod 0 illumination signal kit. Each cartridge flare has a minimum duration of 4 1/2 seconds and can be launched up to 250 feet. When the launcher is stored in the survival vest, it should be in the COCKED position and empty (fig. 5-3). Refer to NAVAIR proper handling and storage of the MK 13, MOD 0 SIGNAL FLARE The Mk 13, Mod 0 signal flare is attract the attention of SAR aircraft 11-15-7 for signal kit. intended to and to give them drift direction. To avoid being burned by sparks, the ignited Mk 13, Mod 0 signal must be held at arms length and no more than shoulder high. If the Mk 13, Mod 0 signal is being used at sea, hold it over the side of the life raft to prevent damage to the life raft from hot residue. The Mk 13, Mod 0 signal may be put out by dousing in water or snuffing in sand. Refer to NAVAIR 11-15-7 for precautions, handling, and storage procedures. The Mk 13, Mod 0 consists of a metal cylinder closed at each end. There is a tear friction tape igniter on a clip at each end. One end contains a red flare for nighttime use; the opposite end houses an orange smoke signal for daytime use. Each end of the signal burns approximately 20 seconds. The nighttime end of the flare has protrusions that you can feel in the dark. On the outside of the Mk 13, Mod 0 flare are operating instructions and a lot number (fig. 5-4). The lot number should be checked each time the flare is inspected to ensure that the flare is still serviceable. A list of lot numbers that are not serviceable can be found in current aircrew

..

there is a company that makes mounts for these to fit onto rail systems




This is the one that sold for $250.


I would like to try to get $300 since it has all 7 flares and bandolier please feel free to post or pm.. and please dont troll, this thread is just me trying to help someone out.
