The 105 mm M2A1 (M101A1) howitzer was the standard light field howitzer for the United States in World War II, seeing action in both the European and Pacific theaters. Entering production in 1941, it quickly entered the war against the Imperial Japanese Army in the Pacific, where it gained a reputation for its accuracy and powerful punch. The M101A1 fired 105 mm high explosive (HE) semi-fixed ammunition and had a range of 11,270 meters, or 12,325 yards, making it suitable for supporting infantry.
 
All of these qualities of the weapon, along with its widespread production, led to its adoption by many countries after the war. Its ammunition type also became the standard for many foreign countries' later models. In 1962, the artillery designation system was changed and the 105mm M2A1 howitzer became the M101A1. It continued to see service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Though a similar model, the M102 howitzer, shared the same roles in battle, it never fully replaced the M101A1. Today, the M101A1 has been retired by the U.S. Military, though it continues to see service with many other countries.
 
The Canadian Forces continued to use the M2A1 as the C1 Howitzer until 1997, when a modification was made to extend its service life; it is now designated the C3. The changes include a longer barrel, a muzzle brake, reinforced trails and the removal of shield flaps. It remains the standard light howitzer of Canadian Forces Reserve units. The C3 is used by Reserve units in Glacier National Park in British Columbia as a means of avalanche control. In addition, the M101 has found a second use in the U.S. As an avalanche control gun, supervised by the US Forest Service.
 
France and the State of Vietnam used it during the First Indochina War.
 
A number of M2/M101 howitzers were used by the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and approximately 50 were inherited by Croatia, of which 4 are still in use for training with the Croatian army.
 
Two M2 howitzers (1942) are still employed in providing the gun salute at Kristiansten Fortress, in Trondheim, Norway.

Hotchkiss Twin Machine Gun for sale  Hotchkiss Twin Machine Gun for sale

Hotchkiss model 1930 heavy machine guns, magazine-fed, on twin Naval AA mount (diagrams).

Weight 40 kg gun body + 57 kg infantry tripod
Length 1490 mm
Barrel length 992 mm

Rate of fire 450 rounds per minute


During the late 1920s the French army decided to adopt a large-caliber machine gun, for anti-armor and air defence duties, and after some experimenting it finally settled on 13,2mm caliber. As usual with the French army, most work was conducted in deep secrecy, but the outcome of the trials was the adoption of the heavy machine gun, developed by Hotchkiss, which happened in 1930. This weapon used a modified version of the American .50 calibre ammunition, loaded with bullets of slightly larger diameter – 13.2mm as opposed to the original 12.7mm; the cartridge cases were about the same, save for the larger diameter of the neck of the French load. The machine gun, known as the M1930, was more or less an enlarged version of the Hotchkiss M1922 light machine gun, with a similar gas-operated action and similar feed options, available in two versions – with side-fed strips or top-fed box magazines. What was most important was the fact that the French army and Navy also adopted a number of mountings for this formidable weapon, starting with the more or less usual tripods and up to sophisticated single, twin and quad AA mountings with pantograph sight mounts and movable seats for gunners. Twin and quad mountings were widely installed on trucks, railroad cars and ships. Versions of the heavy Hotchkiss were also widely exported during the pre-war decade. Japan, among others, was so impressed with these weapons that it acquired a manufacturing license and built 13.2mm machine guns in significant numbers.

The Hotchkiss M1930 heavy machine gun is a gas operated, air-cooled, automatic-only weapon, which fires from an open bolt. The long-stroke gas system and locking using a tilting locking piece are similar to those of the Hotchkiss M1922 LMG, but the trigger system is much simpler; it uses a single or twin spade grip at the rear of receiver with a thumb-trigger, which is directly connected to the sear. Some infantry versions of the gun were fitted with a pistol grip and a trigger at the rear of receiver, with shoulder stock attached behind. The rear part of the barrel (behind the gas block) is encased in a radiator with radial cooling fins. The Hotchkiss M1930 heavy machine gun could be had either in strip-fed or in magazine-fed versions. The magazine-fed type incorporates a bolt hold-open device, which locks the bolt open once the magazine is empty, even if the trigger is still held down. The bolt hold-open device is automatically disengaged once a fresh magazine is inserted into the gun.

The M1930 heavy machine gun was available on a wide variety of mountings, including light infantry tripods (with no AA capability), wheeled mountings, as well as single, twin and quad AA mountings, with ground fire capability and comprehensive aiming systems. Strip-fed guns were most often used for infantry applications on single mounts; magazine-fed guns were also widely used on multiple gun mounts, either ground or naval.

This is a twin 40mm Bofors gun and mount. 
The unit is mounted on a US Naval trailer that is from World War 2 also. 
It was completely demilitarized by the U. S. Navy before it was released. This was done without any visible outside damage.
 This gun served on the USS Downes, which was hit while in dry dock during the attack on Pearl Harbor. 
The gun and mount is in good condition.  Reconditioning was started it but but was stopped due to health issues of the owner. 
These guns & mounts are tough to find, impossible to import, and this particular gun was in the Pearl harbor battle.

This Bofors mount was placed on a second ship after the attack at Pearl Harbor and then saw heavy action in the Philippines.  Then later the Navy mounted the gun on the existing naval trailer for Hawaii anti aircraft shore battery protection. 

 It is an ALL original United States Navy setup, not something someone just put together!


USN WWII Twin Bofors from attack on Peral Harbor for sale

The United States Navy's Bureau of Ordnance purchased these 40mm twin-mount air-cooled example directly from Bofors, which arrived in New York on 28 August 1940. During that month another Dutch ship, the van Kinsbergen, demonstrated the Hazemeyer mount to Navy observers. The gun was quickly chosen as the Navy's standard anti-aircraft weapon, and the Navy secretly imported a set of Imperial designs from England and started production illegally. A formal contract with Bofors followed in June 1941. The resulting Mark 1 and Mark 2 weapons were intended for the left and right side of a twin mount, respectively, and were adapted by Chrysler for water cooling.

USN WWII Twin Bofors from attack on Peral Harbor for sale



The model in the photos below on the right, shows clearly where the gun(s) were located.

   

When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941, the Downes was in drydock with Cassin and Pennsylvania. The three came under heavy attack and an incendiary bomb landed between the two destroyers, starting raging fires fed by oil from a ruptured fuel tank. Despite heavy strafing, the crews of the two destroyers got their batteries into action, driving off further attacks by Japanese planes. The drydock was flooded in an effort to quench the fires, but the burning oil rose with the water level and when the ammunition and torpedo warheads on board the destroyers began to explode, the two ships were abandoned. Later Cassin slipped from her keel blocks and rested against Downes. Listed at first as complete losses, both of these destroyers were repaired and joined the war.

Salvage operations were soon begun on Downes with machinery and other salvageable equipment being shipped to Mare Island Navy Yard. She was officially decommissioned 20 June 1942. Additional information and photos: http://www.navsource.org/archives/05/375.htm

History of the 13.2-mm Hotchkiss:

Development

In the late 1920s, Hotchkiss proposed a range of anti-aircraft automatic weapons in the 13.2, 25 and 37 mm calibers. They were all based on the same type of gas-operated action than the 8 mm mle 1914 machine gun, that had proven extremely reliable during World War I and was still in service. Hotchkiss also advertised the 13.2 mm machine gun as an infantry weapon, that could be fitted on conventional tripods and be used against light armor. French infantry commanders, that had expressed interest in acquiring light anti-aircraft guns, refused the 13.2 mm. They argued that those heavy bullets falling down could be dangerous to friendly troops, and went to larger calibers where self-destructing shells were available. But the 13.2 mm Hotchkiss saw extensive use as a naval gun, and was also chosen by the French cavalry for some of its armored vehicles.

When used as a naval weapon-
Early in World War II, the French and Japanese navies were using twin and quadruple mountings on many of their warships. French warships that were refitted in the USA in 1943, such as battleship Richelieu or destroyer Le Terrible, had their 13.2 mm machine guns replaced by more efficient Oerlikon 20 mm cannons.

When used a ground weapon-
The 13.2 mm Hotchkiss was used on the, Belgian T15 and French AMR 35, light tanks as well as the AMD Laffly 80 AM armoured car and on fortifications. In WWII the Japanese mounted of the gun on a number of Type 92 Heavy Armoured Cars which had initially only been armed with only a pair of 6.5mm machine guns.

When used as a Anti-Aircraft weapon-
The Japanese used a single mounting for close-range defense of its airfields and other strategic places.

This 45-mm anti-tank gun model 1937 (53-K) was a combination of a modified carriage of the 37 mm anti-tank gun model 1931 with a 45 mm barrel. The resulting light semi-automatic anti-tank gun was adopted for Red Army service in 1937. These guns were used in the first stage of the Great Patriotic War, but their anti-armor capabilities allowed them to fight successfully only with German light tanks and armored personnel carriers. Early models of the Panzer III and Panzer IV could also be knocked out at close range, but this put Soviet artillerymen in greater danger. Due to these circumstances, model 1937 guns were replaced with the more powerful model 1942. The mass production of outdated model 1937 guns was stopped in 1943. The total number of guns produced was 37,354.

The gun was employed by anti-tank platoons of rifle battalions (2 guns) and by anti-tank battalions of rifle divisions (12 guns). It was also used by separate anti-tank regiments (4-5 batteries of 4 guns each).

Description

The Model 1916 grenade launcher (Granatenwerfer) is a spigot type weapon made from cast steel. The spigot contains a firing pin which is cocked by a lever on the side of the weapon with the propellant charge in the base of the projectile. A lanyard and handle are used to fire the weapon at a safe distance. The Granatenwerfer was designed such that the round slides over a mandrel rather than having a heavy barrel to contain it. When the lanyard is pulled the firing pin is released protruding from the end of the mandrel and strikes the primer of a propellant cartridge housed inside the Granatenwerfer round. The expanding gas from the propellant continues to accelerate the round until it is clear of the top of the mandrel. An elevation range scale is on the left side of the launcher.
The grenade launcher is painted Matt grey. No markings discernable.
