Still looking for M102 breech block parts

Post by nickd » Mon Mar 11, 2019 9:49 pm

Looking for a trigger and sear along with ejectors. Also need a firing pin assembly. Needs to be restored and set up for display and blank fire only.
Thanks,
Nick

nickd - I have recently volunteered to care for the 2 105mm howitzers at the Army Heritage Center in Carlisle PA. We have an M102 and an M101A1 in a firebase display outside. These belong to the Army Museum system. I am working to get them to elevate and traverse.

I have a collection of equipment and use for 2 big open houses each year ( gun gear, Aiming circle, FDC charts & darts, etc). I do not have the parts you are looking for but will keep an eye open as I look for parts. I am looking for a few parts for the elevation and traversing mechanisms for the M102 among other things. I have manuals through the -34P.

I served in the 82nd Airborne & 28th Infantry Division Artillerys in the 80's and worked with both guns. Hope we can link up sometime.
