Ask Brian at BRP, I know he has British mortar parts and i think he has a deactivated British mortar also.

I haven't seen any bigger than 82 mm, so if there are any in the US they are rare.
I have 3 mortars and have considered an 82mm, but decided against it due to the size compared to my 50 and 60 mm mortars.

I know a collector with some Brit WWII mortars but I don't know what models or the operational status. He has some registered live stuff and some deactivated. I know he has a 2" with some cool accessories.

I got my Form 1 back to activate a 2", now I'm looking for somewhere to buy a barrel and if I can't I'll buy 4140 tubing and have a machinist friend make one; my skills aren't up to that yet.
