Parts and Tools for Bofors 40mm gun M1, Carriage M3
x4 Hand operating crank, handle
Hand operating crank, handle
x2 Rear shield assembly, C95025
x1 Rod spring, B198369. Manual says free length 9-1/4" to 9-3/4", 209 to 297 lb at 6-1/8". We measured .70" O.D., to fit on .379 shaft and the existing spring 7.5" long.
Ring Sight on Pampanito. The rear sight, bar and socket are from the Army style sight and we think correct. The front sight and adjustment are from a Navy style 40mm Sight Mk 6, Mod 3 and do not belong in this configuration. They had a badly made adapter piece with lots of Bondo.
We need the x1 Army style rear site and x2 correct Army style front sites and mounting piece to fix the gun on the boat.
Army style rear sight we need and Army style front mounting/adjustment piece we need.
