25mm Puteaux fluid transfer pump

Post by waterdawg2004 » Thu Feb 18, 2021 5:12 am

Anyone have a good way to fill a recoil cylinder on a 25mm Puteaux antitank gun?

Any hydraulic hand pump will do the job, but you need the fitting that attaches to the fill valve on the gun. I used a pump with a fairly large reservoir and used swagelok type fittings up to the custom made adapter for my 75mm pack howitzer. For example:
