Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This bomb is totally inert and deactivated following guidelines provided by the ATF. This example is offered in excellent condition with original markings and paint. It cannot be converted to an explosive devise and is not available for export.

This is a very nice WWII Issue M38A2 Inert Practice bomb, intended to be a dummy replacement for the AN-M30 100 lb. bomb and other similar aerial bombs used during WWII. They were used for training, and were much safer for use during exercises. At about 14 lbs. in weight, they were also far lighter than the real thing.

The bomb still has the original blue paint job, the standard color for U.S. inert ordnance during the WWII Period and later. It also still has the original stenciled markings mostly visible:

PRACTICE
BOMB
100 LB. M38A2

LOT JSP - 135
12 - '44

Overall it measures about 48 inches long and just over 8 inches wide. Condition is very good, with just a bit of wear, and some light oxidation in places where the paint has worn through. There is minimal denting or deformation.

A really great example, ready to add to your collection and display!
