    Great War 75mm. Cutaway

    Hello Folks -

    As I mentioned in my first post, ordnance is a bit of a sideline with me. Great War materials being my real interest. However, this is one of my favorites!

    Don't know if it is a training item or factory used cutaway. Perhaps someone can provide some info regarding this. 75mm. cutaway with some of the original schrapnel in place. Some is still in the original matrix and I have saved about 1/4 cup of the matrix that was loose. The loose balls I've placed in the chamber.

    Found at a local gun show about a year ago, it was quite rusty and dusty. Cleaned it up a bit and put it into as seen shape. The first hpoto has a German 88/98 Ersatz bayonet for perspective, but then I realized the photo actually puts it out of perspective.

    Also posted in Cutaways, but though it might be of interest here. Hope dual posting is not out of line!

    Thanks for looking I hope you enjoy it!

    - Best Regards, Mike

    Hello Armystuff -

    Thanks very much for the compliment. Yes, this is one of my favorites. As for Great War (WW1) materials, I concentrate mostly on the bolt action rifles from all countries and the accompanying bayonets and other accessories, and helmets. However, as with any collection the boundaries get pretty fuzzy when an interesting item appears!

    - Best regards, Mike
