Original German WWII Inert Panzerfaust 100 Anti-Tank Rocket with Launcher - Authentic Paint and Paper Label

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The Panzerfaust 100 gross ("large") or Faustpatrone (Translated literally to mean: Tank Fist Large) was the fourth version of the Panzerfaust. This was the final version produced in quantity, and was completed in September 1944. However, it did not reach full production until November 1944. It had a nominal maximum range of 100 m (330 ft). 190 g (6.7 oz) of propellant launched the warhead at 60 m (200 ft) per second from a 6 cm (2.4 in) diameter tube. The sight had holes for 30, 60, 80 and 150 m (260 and 490 ft), and had luminous paint in them to make counting up to the correct one easier in the dark. This version weighed 6 kg (13 lb) and could penetrate 220 mm (8.7 in) of armor. This model was only produced for a few months before the war ended, so they are quite rare in ANY condition, even more so in this nice collectible state.

This ingenious throw away Rocket and Launcher was one of AH's last ditch weapons adopted by the NSDAPs to try and repel the invading Allies on both the Eastern and Western fronts.

This example has been demilitarized according to specifications by the BATF. It still retains most of the original dunkelgelb (dark yellow) paint on the rocket, while the launcher is a has a lovely multi-color paint job. From what we can see, most of the original red instruction stencils on the launcher and firing mechanism have been re-painted, or at least touched up, as we can see where the paint wore away in the past. However the range markings on the sight are definitely original.

As a very rare treat, this rocket with this example still retains the large instruction label reading Panzerfaust 100 m. It is worn around the edges and lifting up on one side, but as best we can tell it is original. These are extremely rare to find, and most examples we have had are completely missing the warhead label. There are also some faded Waffenamt inspection stamps around the label. The entire rocket can be removed from the tube, with the only noticeable discrepancy being that the metal fins are missing, as they easily rust away. The original leaf sight and trigger assembly are also still present and in rather solid condition.

This is a very rare example and your chance to own an original Panzerfaust 100 m inert launcher and rocket set!
