Very nice, unfortunately my 81 mm is all I can move around by myself.
I would need a trailer to move that beast!!

It's a great display piece, but I think only the baseplate is from an M-120. I'm not sure about the rest. I've actually been looking for one of those plates, and they are pretty tough to turn up.

They are a hoot to shoot live HE. The whole m113 shifts every time you hang a round. Congrats

Growing up watching movies, we all believe mortars go "PLOOMPFH" when they go off.....

The first time I dropped a 4.2 inch round, my heart nearly stopped beating from the percussion. It literally felt like my insides were being hit with a shock wave.

Our current 120's are just as bad. Ive seen squads have to PULL baseplates out of the ground with their trucks.

It will vaporize a filled styrofoam coffee cup leaving only the base and 2 drops of coffee on the base if you set it on the edge of the mortar hatch opening then hang a round.:D. Not a deop or spray evidence ANYWHERE else, not even bits of rest of cup.
