Location: Mohnton, Pa

Gentlemen,

   We have four 37MM  Anti-Aircraft barrels for sale. These appear to be NOS as they are covered in Cosmoline. They are grey in color. I didn't take the two out of the wrap but I believe 3 of the barrels have the Recoil Springs on them still.

   I am by no means an expert on these and I can't find any that have been sold recently for reference. I do know these were used on Anti Aircraft guns on Naval Ships and for regular ground AA. They were developed in the 1930's and used Heavily in WWII.. These look like they have been in a time machine.

    These are 7 ft long and weigh quite a bit. I will consider delivering them to the creek.

Sold one of these to a local Sturm member. It was discovered that these are actually 37mm Barrels and not 40 bofors.

 

BTT...

Been getting questions on these about the breech diameter. Below is a photo of a mic reading of the breech end.
