Does anyone have or know where to obtain diagrams, Schematic's, measurements or blue prints for the 8cm Granatwerfer 34

I've googled but to no avail.

Hi Aleksander

Thanks for replying. What we are actually looking for are the measurements of each part and instructions on how each part was 'bolted / welded ' together to make the final 'article'

Once we have those we can then set about making the mortar

Thanks again for taking the time to look up details though.

No problem. However I think it can be rather difficult to find that sort of information you need.

Have you tried the Bundesarchiv in Germany? I know they have the plans you need.
They have more the 250.000 blueprints of different weapons and machinery used during the period...
