Help identifying gun part

Recommended Posts

I am sure many of you have more experience and info than I have on the subject. I will attach pics of what I believe is a 20 mm breech block from a machine gun, it is new old stock. The only identifying numbers are as follows, c-7306609. Thanks in advance if you can help identify where this comes from.

Looks like it belongs to an M2 20mm autocannon. The M2 was used in WWII, notably on the F4U-1C Corsair, B-29 Superfortress, P-38 Lightning and A-1 Skyraider.

Truly superior pilots are those that use their superior judgment to avoid those situations where they might have to use their superior skills.


If you ever find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck!
