Original Spanish Inert 88.9mm Instalaza M65 Bazooka Anti-Tank Launcher Serial CH 2365 with Canvas Face Shield

Regular price $1,195.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only one available. Fully Deactivated per BATF Specifications, this is a very nice example of the Spanish 88.9mm Instalaza M65 "Bazooka." It is a derivative of the U.S. made M20 "Super Bazooka" Anti-Tank Weapon system, developed by the Instalaza company for use by the Spanish Military in the 1960s and 70s. NOT AVAILABLE FOR EXPORT.

Compared to the M20, the M65 used an improved ignition method and new ammunition types. Its typical ammunition was the CHM65 High-Explosive Anti-Tank round, as well as , MB66 (Dual-Purpose), and FIM66 (Smoke) shells.

This fine example still correctly sets up, with the integral Bipod and rear Monopod both present, though the length adjustments are stuck on the right and rear legs. The very nice optical sight still gives a very good image with an intact reticle, and the elevation adjustment underneath is fully functional. The eye cup is in relatively good condition, though it does show some cracking. The range measurements are listed in DECAMETROS (decimeters), as is correct, and the face shield is fully intact, with the canvas "skirt" still present underneath.

The launcher does not appear to have been repainted, and still bears a clear CH 2365 serial number on the top of the tube near the eyepiece, with a "Star in Shield" logo above. The launcher still breaks down correctly, though it can get a bit stuck. The locking screw on the joint is also stuck in the out position, but we have not had issues with it falling apart.

With the prices of original U.S. bazookas going through the roof, this is a great chance to pick up a spectacular "man cave" accessory! Ready to display on your wall!
