60 mm mortar need to propell ammo ?

Unread postAuthor: sgt pauley » Fri Jan 13, 2006 1:43 pm

Hello all, I re-enact WWII I also just bought a 60 mm mortar. Right now i`m in ned of idea`s on how to proplel the rounds? Ican use rockcts but that`s no good i think ?Also this is all steel and bronze. If anyone wouldlike to look at the mortar and contact me with ideas here`s my email charles_pauley2@yahoo.com also my home # is (301)-737-0828 if it costs you to talk then i`ll call you back it`s free for me and why waste your dime ! I know how to make it function the right way but ATF will come take it. Also for you that know anything abut mortars this is a 60 mm Spanish made in "64" and is a drop mortar. Might have enough room at the bottom for a gas chamber? Only problem is getting the wad to sit everytime on command? Reason why, you have to load it from the top of the tube . Also my warheads are going to explode upon impact, very weak it`s just for re-enatments like a strong M-80 ? Less the fragmentation lol ! Anyhow please send help lol email me and i`ll send all the photo`s you need! Thanks very much ! best regards, SGT.Pauley

i thought modern morters were propelled by basicly a type of shotgun shell, you know drop it in the tube, pin in bottem strikes primer and out it comes, but one that old is probly very heavy, how much does it weight? i see by your phone number your in western Md. i'm in northern baltimore county myself. i'll be sending a picture request from my yahoo email shortly, your probly get a ton of calls putting a phone number up here be ready for them!

How much does the shell weight? Cause you could do like Jrrdw and drill a hole in the bottom and put a .10G shitgun sheel in there and have it drop on a pin, It might work it might not, good luck with it. Keep us posted
