Original Japanese WWII Type 100 HE 81mm Mortar Round - U.S. Trainer

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Totally non-functional and inert having been deactivated according to specifications outlined by the BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives).

This is an excellent rare example of the Japanese Type 100 HE Mortar Round used with the Type 97 (1937) and later the Type 99 small trench mortar. This is based on the Stokes-Brandt design as was the U.S. 81mm, and this round was actually interchangeable with the U.S. M43A1 shell.
The Japanese Type 100 round had a maximum range of about 3,000 yards. Loaded weight: ~3kg (6.9lbs) of which 1 pound was TNT.
This example was a captured Japanese round that was converted to a training device by the U.S. Military in WWII. It was painted blue to denote it as a practice round and the fuze was replaced by an inert U.S. manufactured example but otherwise it is identical to Japanese issue.
