I have a round, but it's 1952 dated.... didn't spend that....

Has your M18 been overstamped A1, it appears to have the breach lever of the A1's....

Have an early scope going by the No.s

When you say full bag you mean the early bag or the later breach amd muzzle cover, also cover the sight etc... in 3 parts....


Its got a few markings but you could be right , as I say 45 is quite clear and the Ord markings USA and numbers etc , looking a bit closer it could have some not so clear overmarkings it has a lever , so is this a modified M18 , I had some "expert" say it was not American and the numbers mean nothing even though it has the markings its a post war French !! but they got the war surplus anyway!!! I thought they had the 104mm as picture attached to a Vespa for there Airborne troops,

Ideal Xmas present from the wife :wink:

Do you have any rounds or a ammo box...

If you have an ammo box could you post some pix... looking to make a few for mine....[/quote]

I found a picture of one if thats any good 22 1/2" Long x 8" High x 8" Deep holds 4Rounds the top box is Vietnam era and the second pic is WWII out of the TM9-314 manual I managed to get my hands on , also if your after any small bits for the rifle go onto Numrich Gun parts Corporation they had quite a few bits in stock and they ship UK , just put into the search on their site M18 57mm and the bits come up .Couple of photo's of the rifle.

My Dad, saddly the originals that had been used by the farmer were beyond all help as were the million-times-repaired 40's inner tubes. :lol:
