    Hi Operheim, thanks for the comments.

    No, the PTRD is very different from a Bofors gun. Some info can be found here:

    Russian

    Cheers, Ade.

    Inert RPG40 Anti Tank grenade. Ruchnaya Protivotankovaya Granata.

    A hard to find item here in the West.

    This example is a Winter War relic and came from Finland.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Inert F1 Grenades.

    These are actually East German made copies of the Soviet F1, but make good cheap grenade pouch fillers for our living history events.

    Again good info here:

    Soviet F1 Fragmentation Grenade (Modern) - Inert-Ord.net

    Cheers, Ade.

    OK Guys, this is my final item to share with you.

    A PU telescopic sight and mounting bracket. PU = Прицел укороченный - or shortened scope.

    This example dates from 1943 and was made at plant №357 "Progress". It is my intention to buy a former sniper rifle and rebuild it using this scope.

    I hope that you have enjoyed my thread?

    I will add any new additions I get in the future.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That is a fantastic collection. I would love to have a Simonov (PTRS). Ammo for the 14.5 mm is very hard to get in this country.
