    Hi Dan,

    Nice relic and i should think it would clean up well for display, My view is also a a flash hider for an mg of some kind, i would like to know what it came off though.

    It looks like the tail end of a rocket. There is no evidence of a barrel is there?

    I still think its a barrel, there is a screw thread there, where the flash suppressor would be screwed on

    Yeah my vote goes to a flash hider as well. More Mg34 over 42. Where is the piece coming from? Might add to help with the puzzle

    Well done spotter! I reckon you and Ian hit the nail on the head. I had never seen the back end of a panzerschreck rocket without the fins before but with your link and the pic above it looks to be a match. Would explain the thread and absence of barrel opening.

    Well Done! Gold star for both of you
