    37mm M16 shipping tube

    looking for photos,measurements of an original ww2 cardboard shipping tube for the US 37mm M16 round.a friend of mine is restoring a ww2 dodge with the 37mm gun on it and would like to fill up the ammo bins with replica tubes
    would like to buy an original tube if someone has one for sale,so he can copy the stampings etc

    Tube is 385mm long,cap at 65mm.63mm dia, this tube is for the M63 ,not the M74 inside!.
    Tube is plain brown waxed finish card, black lettering,pressed steel end cap with embossed printing.
    Mailing tube might fit the bill?.
    Not for sale sorry.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
