FS 25mm Hotchkiss anti tank gun

Post by Frank USMC » Mon Jul 15, 2019 4:12 pm

I am selling my 25mm Hotchkiss anti tank gun....again. For those who know me, I went through a bad divorce a few years back, I put the gun up for sell to pay off the exwife under North Carolina law....please, do not tell me you want the gun and never come get it.
Okay, life is grand again!!! I have remarried! and new Bride loves out door stuff, so I am selling the cannon to buy a WWII Chevy dump truck.
The gun has been subcalabered to 50 cal. The barrel in it has been cut short to fire blanks, I will throw in a full size barrel if you want to make it to fire 50 cal bullets.
I am selling the gun for $12,000.....and please, no hold it till I show up.:)

The gun has been painted back to be a captured gun after France fell in June of 1940. The Germans called them 2,5 CM PAK 112(f). They were used on the front up till about 1943, then issued to rear area units.

Frank, where in NC are you? Is Newport correct? I'm in Fayetteville. I wonder if you're close enough to come take a look at your gun. If it's still available, that is.
