Hi Dontos! Hi Folks!

M29 WEASEL


Hey!!! Is that a 'Mule' with the 106mm RR behind the Weasel?


Boy do you have a thing for 106mm RRs or what?
I missed it the first time through and only picked up on it when you said something!

Sgt, Scouts Out! Smile


Actually Roy,

I have a friend that is looking for a pedistol mount for his Mule, to mount a 106.

I seem to have grown into somewhat of a novice for the 106mm RR,....for obvious reasons... Wink (always on the prowl for another surviving .....you know what.

Don

Pedistol mount for the Mule?

I think we need Old Top to join us on this one.

I am not sure, but I was under the impression that the yoke that held the rifle was removed from the tripod and mounted onto the bed of the Mule.

Not being a 'mule' expert,....there some sort of bracket support on or under the floor boards that is required to mount the mount. This is the part he needs.

He has an M1919A4 / M60 pedistol mount currently.

Check this out....

OK, a bracket that goes under the bed makes sense to me. My guess is it mounts between the two frames running under the bed that holds everything together.

90mm AT! Far out!
I wonder how much a round of ammo cost now days for that thing?

I happiend to be surfing first thing this morining and ran acrossed the Gunny (Mail Call) at that same place in KY that host a semi-annual automatic weapons firing event. Far out.

That was last year. He taped a 'mail call' show.

Here's a little taste of his visit.

"Mail Call" segment

Definitely a fun event.

Ya' know, 90 and 106mm RR's were used all over the intermountain west for avalanche control at many passes and ski resorts. Only lack of suitable ammo has forced the conversion to other means, like heli-delivered charges, propane guns, and the like. 105mm howitzers have been used, and some of the newer lightweight ones were recalled into service for use in Afghan and elsewhere, owing to a shortage of easily portable guns. A few RR's can still be seen at a few resorts...

When I lived in Washington (State), there was a 106mm RR used as avalanche control in the Passes of the Cascades. That was back in 1994-98.

I had a tour of duty in 'Recruiting Command' and had to live on an Island for 4 years. (Whidbey Island).

The 106 was later replaced by an M60 as I recall. It is (was) operated by the forestry dept. Although I believe additional support was from the Washington National Guard & Ft Lewis.

I believe that the 106 was also used in Colorado for the same purpose.

Amazing what one finds when you do some real 'indepth' research.

Don
