Smaller and Older "Assault Mortar"

Unread postAuthor: praetorian91 » Mon Jun 18, 2007 1:01 pm

This was actually my third cannon, and is starting to show signs of its age. Nevertheless, it continues to serve me well and has been very reliable. Its a fun little plinker that still packs quite a punch.

It has two methods of filling its small 2 by 18 inch chamber: by Schrader and quick-disconnect.

The muzzle brake is just your basic 2 inch coupler, but with numerous holes drilled in it. Needless to say, it is just for show, and has no real purpose.

I've used your average one inch watermaster to empty the mortar.

The rest speaks for itself.

Enjoy,

If you have not figured it out already, sturm-morser is assault mortar in German

He he... I like the ghetto replacement for a pop-safety valve: "The Warning Sticker". How hard was it to make those stencils for the words on the mortar? Did you use prefab stencils?

BTW I like the two methods of filling.

heh... warning stickers are good for us types who are too cheap and/or lazy to put on the pop safeties.

Stencils werent hard, I just used some prefab "german style" ones.
