    It's quite a lump of steel to have crashing into your tank that's for sure, even at that comparatively lower velocity. I'll post some photos when it's cleaned up, but that'll be project No27 or 28!

    My flea market guy had a shell today that was tempting. 105mm with a fuse. Unfired, looks as new as the day it came out of the factory except for a couple of scuffs, probably from dropping it while moving it. He said he thought it was Vietnam era which puts it out of my primary area of interest but it is after all a shell.

    What would you collectors put on this for a price? He's asking $200 which for me is a lot of money for something only casually in my area of interest.

    It is just the shell, no casing to go with it although I have a WWII era 105mm casing. I think it would be suicidal for the feet to actually put it in it however as someone, probably me is going to knock it over. This may never have had a case anyway, could be artillery and get bagged.

    105 probably had a case, not just bagged. Ours used a case with removable bags for charge. Then once you had the correct number of bags inside, the projectile was set into the case mouth to cut the bags loose from their connecting string. About the price, might be top end but if it's nice they're just as hard to find in good shape as anything else. I can find you a case here without effort... Agreed about top heavy, my 18pdr is sitting up on a spot in the basement at the corner so no one can get near it and it's leaning back into the corner...
    Regards, Jim

    It's been a long time since I fired an artillery piece. I honestly don't remember how we did it. I remember the bags all stringed together. Wasn't my branch but we did it all at least for one day in ROTC advance camp. The tanks were the best, although the artillery was pretty cool also.

    If you get the projectile, I looked at two cases yesterday at my local...shipping might be a hog though.

    I'm thinking about it. It does look awful nice. I have a 105 case here I think, just not sure if it would be the right one.

    Well, as I pointed out on the 4.2 mortar thread these guys owe me so...don't know the date on their cases though. Haven't looked at them since I found them in their scrap pile.
