The internal diameter of the barrel would be usefull in identifying it.

37mm unfortunately gives you a lot of choices including the following:-

1.Russian M1939 AA Gun
2.American 37mm M1 AA Gun
3.American 37mm Anti-Tank Gun
4.Italian Modello 39 AA Gun
5.German Flak 36 and 37 AA Gun
6.French Mitrailleur de 37 mm Modele 1925 AA Gun
7.German 37mm Anti-tank gun
8.Russian 37mm anti-tank gun

Is the barrel threaded for a muzzle brake?
