    Thumbs up 75mm M18 British made case

    Ho all, looking to buy a 75mm (75x350) M18 British (or Canadian) made shell case WW2 dated, preferably 1943. Thanks in advance. Enrico

    I have never seen a British made example with a WW2 date. The only non US examples I have seen with WW2 dates were Canadian.

    The only British ones I have ever seen were 1950s dated, unfortunately cut down.

    That is not to say that they don't exist.

    I have seen one dated 41 with a projectile it had been a lamp. They don't seem to be common.

    I have a few in the collection, will check if one can go.

    Just checked, I have an US made case with CF markings and a UK made case. Unfortunately, none of them can go. I also checked my list, and these are the only 2 I ever found in 15 years. So not so common as I first thought.

    Hi and many thanks for the search. Indeed those are not that common and I managed to locate one now in transit.

    Cheers, E.
