    Default What have I bought????????????

    Hi all,

    I bought this relic for pocket money. It was listed as a Panzerschreck fragment but I cant see any part of a 'schreck' that looks like this ( even the projectile )
    Any ideas what it might be??

    It looks like the front barrel of a badly damaged Machine gun ?

    I believe it a barrel of a 1 pound x8 anti aircraft gun used by Britain. Called the Pom Pom came in 1 and 2 pound varieties

    Hi Morris,
    If this photo is what you mean, I don't think the flash hider is big enough?

    Cheers, Dan

    That's getting closer - it's more machine gun size! Maybe something got jammed in the barrel and blew the cooling shroud away????
    It was just a cheap impulse buy because it had a dramatic look about it.
    Now to see whether it gets past customs & I actually get it!!

    Could it be either of these perhaps?
