I am too!!!!!

I might actually have some cases for those. I think they are buigger than 57mm though?:confused:

I'll check ASAP and see.

Have you tried this guy? He may have some but they just aren't listed yet.

Try here too. He has 57mm training rounds listed.

These guys have 57mm demilled projo's for $10 a pop. Might be good blasting ammo?
(go to collectibles, click on inert ammo)

John Spangler at www.oldguns.net carries a wide variety of casings. Scroll down the banner on the left side of his homepage until you get to "Heavy Ordnance", then click. I just checked and the only recoilless rifle casings he has listed are for 75mm and 106mm. His listings change regularly, you can email and ask him to watch for particular casings, and he's a good guy to deal with.

Welcome to the forum!

Thanks Guys...

Thanks Guys... the help is greatly appreciated.

Talked to John Spangler... he has a single .22 subcaliber 57mm round but he is not interested in selling it....

Zanzibar... the 57mm Trainer is for a Howitzer... wrong gun.

Indianna... good stuff... have the Projectiles from him and BigSky... neither have the empty shell casings I am looking for.

I haven't tried the UK website but will do shortly.


Any of you collect fuses ? Looking for a M490 and a M503.

Thanks

Hmmm Ontos is Teasing.....

But a tracked 106mm battery of Recoilless rifles is the biggest tease of all... Are the 57mm Casings and Parts Available ?

Ah Yes......

A nice four round wood case arrived today... need casings to put in it :D

So what devious destructive device parts or components do you think we can tempt Ontos with ?

Hey Des your M18 and my M18 need to get together. If you are lucky enough to find an extra case let me know. I need one for a sub caliber to 50 cal.

What a day.....

Took me a few weeks to round up everything on Ontos's wish list.... Didn't realize that 1919 Belts, sights and Pintle Pads were so difficult to locate.... ah well... gave me something to do.

Still been looking at various 1917 Tripods at various Dealers and that Illusive M38A1C Jeep for Recoilless Rifles. Trying to find one local as its a bit difficult for this little old handicapped Lady to load one up on a rented trailer all by my little lonesome.

Would like to find one M76 Scope Case if anyone has a spare.
