    Absolutely amazing, great collection! The Russian ones are hard to find especially with sabots. Wish I could find a complete BM-20 and a casing!

    My meager modern Russian AP collection. The BM-20 petals and BM-8 projectile are reproductions.

    I got my hands on a real 100mm BM8 APDS-T, so here are some detailed photos of it.

    I managed to get my hands on a few 100mm BM-20 sabot petal sets. You can keep them together for display by fabricating a snap ring out of a 1/8 X 1/8 X 12 inch piece of brass stock. I have a spare BM20 sabot petal set in the US if anyone is looking - could ship these anywhere in the world without issue (also have a spare dart).

    Bruce (bacarnal) as able to set me up with one BM-6 115mm sabot petal - Thanks Bruce! I have attached photos of it here. This is something that should be relatively easy to cast in resin. I will probably not try to do this using 3D printing like I did for the 100mm BM-20 petal (too expensive). Has anyone else managed to find any BM-6 components since this thread was started a year ago? It seems the grooves in the BM-20 and BM-6 have the same dimensions, but the BM-6 has two more.

    I still only have one 115mm sabot petal and no BM-6 dart. So, I took a spare BM-20 dart and a five inch block of plastic to make a replica 115mm APFSDS round. This will do till I find more pieces of the original.
