Original U.S. WWII 81mm Display M1 Mortar System With Baseplate and Bipod

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The M1 81mm mortar was the largest weapon in the arsenal of the U.S. WWII infantry battalion. It provided the battalion commander with a powerful and flexible indirect fire capability. Sometimes called "infantry artillery," or "hip pocket artillery," mortars were capable of quickly laying down heavy barrages. These could stop enemy attacks under the worst conditions. Able to fire at high angles, mortars could fire at targets in defilade, either under direction of a forward observer, or firing off map coordinates. In the WW2 Pacific campaigns, these weapons became an important part of the battalion's firepower, especially since they could be man-packed into positions that were inaccessible to artillery.

We offer a genuine M1 81mm non-functional BATF complaint inert demilitarized  display mortar as used by U.S. forces in WWII. This display is composed of the following:

- Original WWII Mortar Base Plate

- Original WWII Adjustable Bipod

- Original WWII M1 Mortar Demilled barrel tube which has been torch cut with a bore size hole and the interior of barrel has been welded with two cross pins to prevent use.

These weapons are most unusual for the collectors market, and have been stored in Government Arsenals until their recent release, original M4 bipod data plate still present. This is a genuine WWII mortar system and not a newer fabrication.
