I'm not sure, but I think you may have the name wrong. Try searching around on this and see if it helps any.

No, the M1A1 bazooka does exist. Unfortunately, the US military insists on using the same designations again and again for lots of different things.

Just M1A1 can refer to a variant of any of the following:
- A bazooka
- The Abrams tank
- The Thompson submachine gun
- A 90mm anti-aircraft gun
- The M1 .30 carbine

Rather daft, really.

The dimensions (or at least enough of them to start estimating the others from photos) can probably be found by reading through the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bazooka

M1A1 is the correct name for the first widely used bazooka.

You might wade through this to see if you can find any dimensions.

The page numbered 11 has a pretty good drawing. No dimensions but you can probably extract what you need by scaling to a dimension you know (like the overall length).

It's probably somewhat unlikely. Anyway, given the only 22 views you've got (which will include doubles/triples from the same people) it's a little soon to be re-asking the question.

Also, a little slow on the response about the designation, as both I and Jimmy have already covered that point.

Dude, why so hostile? Just trying to help. As far as the name goes, the "I'm not sure" should have covered that and Rag's post about the US wanting to use the same name over and over and over again will throw anyone off track. Oh, and stop double posting.

Back on topic, there used to be a user by the name of scottcrete here. He had issues, but he did put together a rather nice launcher that may interest you and give some good ideas. It is a combustion launcher but he did a rather nice job of the replication.

I doubt it. It's not his.

Are you the laziest *censored* in the world?
I told you that the Wikipedia article would have a lot of details, and that the remaining ones could be pretty accurately estimated.

It's literally RIGHT under "Specifications" in the article.
60mm bore, 137 cm long, weighs 5.8 kilos.

Almost everything else can be accurately predicted by knowing those simple facts. Look, here's a side photo for you to work from.
In the time it's taken you to keep pestering us about something we've already said you're unlikely to get an answer to, you could already have the dimensions as accurately as you'll ever be able to replicate them, and close enough that only a pedant with a tape measure and a set of blueprints could fault them.

Hi,
I just googled "m1a1 bazooka dimensions"

and this is the very first link on the search results:
http://www.strictly-gi.com/bazooka.html

has LOTS of info including length, weight, caliber, even dimensions of the crate the bazooka is stored in. TONS of pictures too. perhaps you were not specific enough on your google search.

Cheers,
rdp
