    5cm pzgr 40 fake - reproduction

    Does anyone doubt that this is a fake/reproduction? It was advertised as authentic. I am not an expert.

    Is the core tungsten? Why is there a step in the taper of the ogive?

    I agree, the core might not be fake, the rest definitely is

    So, regarding the core, is it 21mm dia?, all 5cm Pzgr40 and Pzgr40/1 cores I think are 21mm.
    ....and of course is it Tungsten.

    Yes, write "Secret" on an item and shoot it at the enemy :-)

    No measurements were posted with it - just the pics.

    Thanks all.
    The seller is also advertising this as genuine 5cm German - not familiar with these but am pretty certain it is also incorrect;

    Hello Jeff. Your round does not look anything like the verified real one that I have. The nose should be Bakelite with an aluminum tip.
