Does anyone know how the trigger mechanism of a panzerfaust was attached to the tube? Also, does anyone know how the pieces of the trigger and sight were attached to each other? I've seen pics online that show pop rivets holding the mechanism together but I'm not sure whether that is a modern replica or a period method of fitting it together. I'd have thought rivets would have made it quite difficult to lift the sight and push the trigger down as it would all be very tight. Also the means of attaching all of this to the tube is a bit of a mystery to me, I can't see that it would have been riveted to the tube or the rivet stubs would have made it impossible to insert the projectile into the tube. One last question, how did the thing fire? I can see the pin that is pushed down into the tube but what did it connect with to get the panzerfaust to fire?
Sorry to bombard you with questions but I'm scratch building a model of a panzerfaust from metal and I just can't find answers to these questions online
Any help will be much appreciated, thanks for your time fellas,
