Russian D-30 markings? info?

Recommended Posts

Hello HMVF crew,

 

I'm in the process of buying a Russian (I think) D-30 Howitzer (pictures below). we're having trouble locating all the pertinent info on this rig for importation purposes, though, and I hope someone here can help.

 

Where will we find the serial number stamped on this thing?? there's a number on the breech, but it doesn't look like a serial#. Also, we can't even find a data plate with the manufacturer listed. Any ideas?

 

TIA

Are you aware of the ATF de-milling requirements ? Unfortunately that breechring will have to be completely severed at right angles to the barrel and a hole cut in the chamber equal to the bore.

well, I'm aware that there are deactivation requirements, but I don't know specifics on this model yet. the ATF is VERY slow in sending out deact diagrams.:(

I'm also looking for American WWII artillery if anyone has anything for sale. American guns are more tricky to import b/c I believe they require approval from the State Department...
