Original German WWII Panzerfaust 60 Anti-Tank Rocket with Launcher

Regular price $1,995.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This all original example (except for the paint) was wonderfully restored in the 1980s after was recovered from a storage depot in Latvia. It has been beautifully and painstakingly brought back to the original appearance complete with correct dunkelgelb color, stencils and instruction label on the rocket. It has been demilitarized according to specifications by the BATF. It still retains the original tube, original leaf sight and plunger trigger assembly as well as the original which is complete but the thin fins are missing.

This is a very rare example and perhaps your only chance to own an original Panzerfaust 60M launcher and rocket set, in fact, only the second complete set one we’ve ever owned.

Panzerfaust 60 gross ("large") or Faustpatrone (Translated literally to mean: Tank Fist Large) was the third version of the Panzerfaust. This was the most common version, with production starting in September 1944. It had a much more practical range of 60 m (66 yd), although with a muzzle velocity of only 45 m (148 ft) per second it would take 1.3 seconds for the warhead to reach a tank at that range. To achieve the higher velocity, the tube diameter was increased to 5 cm (2.0 in) and 134 g (4.7 oz) of propellant used. It also had an improved flip-up rear sight and trigger mechanism. The weapon now weighed 6.1 kg (13 lb). It could defeat 200 mm (7.9 in) of armor.

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