Original U.S. WWII M49A2 60mm Deactivated Mortar Round dated 1943 with Bakelite Fuse - Inert

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Totally inert and demilitarized according to BATF guidelines with hollow body and inert fuse. This mortar round cannot be converted to an explosive devise and is not available for export.

This is a hard to find WWII 1945-Dated M49A2 Deactivated Mortar Round, for the U.S. 60mm M2 Mortar. The M49A2 was a High explosive (HE) round, equipped with a rare bakelite housed point detonating fuse PDF M52B1., which is marked with LOT WC-3-249 and dated 6 - 43. It was an explosive shell used against infantry and other light area targets. It has a minimum range of 200 yards when fired without a boosting charge at a 70° angle and a maximum range of 2017 yards when fired with four boosting charges at a 45° angle.

This example is in very good condition, with original arsenal markings stamped into the mortar round body: 

LOT - M.M.C  79   1943   60MM.M49A2

The OD Green paint is retained very well, with some yellow arsenal filling marks on the outside. The rare bakelite fuse, which still has a functional aluminum detonation button, screws off for inspecting the internal structure.

A great chance to pick up a scarce WWII dated deactivated mortar round!
