    Hey guys.

    I have been wanting to make this thread for a long time. This is the result of my efforts for collecting 20mm shells! Mainly the German 20x138B flak round but also more recently some new allied 20mm rounds.

    These are a very fun area to collect imo. Cheap generally, tons of variety and they don’t take up much room. There also rare variations which are rewarding to get with patience and knowing where to be at the right time

    I have included all sorts of 20mm kit in the photos below. I will be sure to add a title above each photo so that the guys here who don’t collect these rounds understand what they are.

    Thanks for having a look guys. This has been one of my dedicated areas of focused these last 3 years of collecting. What will happen in another 3 years I wonder!

    Outstanding.

    I wish you’d’ve Titled this thread “THE 20mm thread”......your commitment to this subject matter is obvious and I learn from every one of your posts. And yes, this stuff is just TR ;-), but it’s presentation and detail is almost addictive.

    Keep ‘em coming!

    Thank you mate, I will try to keep this thread updated in the future!

    But your right a thread dedicated to 20mm round could work like your MK6/Helmet covers/MK7 helmet threads

    I believe quality breeds quality.....and ONE long-running post on this single subject is my preference...a one-stop-Shop

    ...although don’t be surprised if a new 20mm thread is started tomorrow!

    Wow! The way things are going in the States now, a 20 mm projectile would come in handy.
