|REPLICA EJECTION SEAT INITIATORS
M3, M3A1, M3A2, M32
|Replica Ejection Seat Initiators are made from a mold I made of a real M3A2 Seat Initiator.
They are cast in solid resin. The top of the Initiator is drilled for the safety pin/flag. The
bottom is drilled and tapped for the fitting to attach the hose to. The plunger/pin in the top
and the Initiator are cast as one piece. You do not have to find a pin or have one made. The
plunger is orientated exactly as it appears in the photo. It has to be turned 90° on some
seats. I need to know that orientation if you want one.
The label is made of self stick brushed aluminum vinyl. Text fields are blank so you can
write whatever the fields require. Use a permanent marker like a Sharpie.
|The M3 and M32 are used on the T-33 seat. The M3A1 is used on the F-100 and F-105. The
M3A2 is used on the Martin Baker MkH7 seat used in the F-4 Phantom. I'm sure these
Initiators are used on other Century Series seats but do not know which ones. I did make
some for a B-52 seat but do not remember which one/s.
The M3, M3A1 and M3A2 are the same physical appearance and dimensions. The M32 has the
same physical appearance but is 1 inch longer. I do have some black M3 labels that someone
requested for their initiators. I also have some black M12 labels that I made for someone. I
believe the M12 is the same as the M32.
I have all the aforementioned labels. I can put whatever your choice on the initiator.

|The request for these has dried up. I haven't made one in years. The Resin material I use to
make these is expensive and has a shelf life. Therefore, I DO NOT keep it in stock. I will not
do any unles I have a request for at least six
If you need one or more and know of any others that are interested, contact me with the
quantity and we'll go from there. Cost is $85 each plus shipping.
