Propose made tube and shells, Tube has door at bottom to remove round.
round is hollow allowing shotgun blank blast to fire thought round.
this tube can not take real rounds as internal diameter is smaller. We have had the Police look at it and they have given us a letter to cover this prop. the Hit is a well time pryo.

Good though is'nt it

Thanks for the explanation, Wayne, though I cannot figure how you ignite the charge in the "round". It's a very good idea, indeed, and it works superbly! Nice show, yeah!

Cheers,

George

Thanks again, Wayne. Much appreciated. Congratulations for that excellent piece of re-enactment gear! It should be really awesome to see the reaction of the public to that.

By the way, great to know that there are quite a lot of people interested on the Big Red One and the 16th. You guys there in Britain, Carlos in Spain... You portray E 16th, Carlos F 16th and myself, though modestly, G 16th. A few more companies and we've got the old 16th back to business... with a very good suppressing fire mortar...

Cheers,

George

Hello,
I have seen your mortar action many times on youtube and it works and looks really well! I am gonna make sth really close to your mortar, please, could you send me a closer photo of the door? I am thinking about tightening the blank shotgun blast between the fuze and the shell body (both newly lathed)- and to make a long needle which would go thru whole body and fins to fire the blast when the shell lends on the bottom and the extended end of the needle strikes on a small cylinder, that will be welded on the bottom of the tube... What do you think about it? (If my describtion is not too complicated and confused :) )
Thank you,
Frankie
