    Default My Panzerfaust

    Have always wanted one of these. Glad I was able to pick it up! The label is messed up, but otherwise it's pretty nice.

    Always have trouble identifying which are the 60's and 100's.

    Anyone know what this one is? Or what the markings on the warhead mean?

    As always, any and all comments are welcome.

    Regards,

    Michael

    Thanks Taka-san,

    Yes, I've seen these. Read all the Panzerfaust threads I could find on WRF. Unless I'm missing the obvious, I see no difference between the 60 and the 100 from this picture (except the label color). As my label is so hard to read, I was hoping there were other obvious clues......

    The warhead looks slightly larger for the 100.

    Or is it just me....

    I think it is just you Taka-san Just Kidding!

    But even if it is....without one side by side with the other, It would be difficult to tell.

    That said, I do remember readingthe other thread where you pulled the picture from that the 100 had a different metal tab holding the warhead on to the launching tube than the 60.

    In the same thread Visniewski wrote the following:

    "As I already written in responce to your question at wehrmacht-awards this is NOT a Pzf 60 but Pzf 100, or what left of it rather. As much as I respect your expertise Adrian Stevenson, the Pzf 60 had a different (perpendicular) sheet metal retainer for the warhead, whereas this one clearly shows longitudinal retainer. The warhead is in dire need of stabilizing fins, of which just nails reamined - the details were in the wehrmacht-awards post. As a denizen of over-the-iron-curtain part of Europe, where such contraptions still littered the forests at one time, I had fairly much to do with Pzf, and had in my collection most common models (30kl, 30gr, 60M and 100M - the 150s were unheard of in my neck of woods), including a Pzf100 like yours (but in MUCH better condition, ca. 80% sand-yellow paint on the tube with dark-green warhead showing rusty remnants of the instruction decal), which precipitated a close encounter of the 3rd kind with the powers-that-be which terminated my first militaria collection back there in 1980s :-) "

    I'm trying to match up this tab on mine with the one on this link. (Panzerfaust help)

    I'm leaning towards it being a 100 (really cool) vs a 60 (still cool)

    Even with the damaged label it is still a very nice Panzerfaust.

    Thanks! Yes it is. It's pretty solid. The only piece that is fragile is the sheet metal retainer but this is to be expected given how thin it is.

    One day I will try to read the label and all the red stenciled writing on the tube. Just haven't had the time.

    I want to build a wall mount for it next!

    Thanks Timothy! This one appears to be completely deactivated! That said, I know an expert and will have them look at it for peace of mind.
