    I recently reacquainted myself with one of my great grand fathers old camp stoves. Vaguely remembered them from my youth, but recently rediscovered them. I believe he used it in and around the Yukon Territory when he was posted there. I don't know much about it. Hoping to try and fire it up at some point. Have another smaller stove, not sure what it is either, post it shortly. Love the site.

    Unlike the other Primus 120s in the Reference Gallery yours has a silent burner and it is missing the outer cap. They are pretty easy to come by.

    Thanks for the info Ben... Maybe some of those stories I was told went so accurate, I thought it was fairly old. The other one my dad had was the one below, do you have any ideas, it say reform on it. Thanks again.

    *Edit: The Reform has been split to a topic of its own, and can be seen here.

    Nice Primus 120! :thumbup: Special one for you since it has been used your great grand father and maybe also you grand father & father.

    It is easy to get running... Just check pump's leather cup & NRV and get inner+outer cap for the burner and it should be ready for testing if it works without additional fettling.
