    Hi all. I picked this up for cheap in Warsaw and am just wondering what it is from. I am fairly certain it is German due to the steel construction. As it is in relic condition no markings can be seen. Measurement are: approx 19.5 in (49cm) tall. Caliber appears to be approx 75mm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes it does I think you have nailed it. I'm guessing these are fairly common, particularly in relic condition? Still I like it
