Help with muzzle cover identification

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Good evening all,

I have an item that says ‘Cover, Muzzle No.48’.

Its a U.S. cover.

would anyone know what this muzzle cover would have covered? (The gun type before someone says ‘a muzzle’).

many thanks in advance, Neil.

I’ve just taken one. 
it’s about a 10 inch diameter.

It's British, not US. As to what it fits, I'm not sure! It's not for 5.5" or 4.5" and the US 155mm gun and 8" howitzer used the US covers in British service.  3.7"? 7.2" How?

 

That 'Sherman muzzle cover' is no such thing, it's just a mop cover for a pull through for 25 pdr.

Thank you both for your replies.

I can never get anything easy to research!
