Hello all.
Has anyone got any parts/bits for a 60mm mortar they are wanting to sell. Anything at all but I am specifically looking for aiming stakes, complete transport straps and covers.

Cheers Adi

Hello Jon, If you have found the bits, how much are you looking at for them?

Aiming stakes were often improvised, anyway. It even says to do so in the manual, as you'll likely need more than just the two they issue.
Get a straight bit of tree and use that.

Aiming lights again can be improvised. One from the manuals is to use a candle inside an empty C-Rat can.
