Deactivated Carl Gustav M2 Launcher SN. 0409 -
Deactivated Carl Gustav M2 84mm Recoilless Launcher in very good condition, with full working action and complete with Jungner RS-322 Optical Sight and waterproof case. This model was made in Sweden by Saab Bofors Dynamics for the Israeli military. The Carl Gustav 84mm, or `Charley G’, as it is known, first appeared in 1948 and went into use with over 40 countries worldwide and is still in use with the majority of them, including Britain and the USA. It fires a 84mm HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank) round out to 700m for static and 400m for moving targets and is capable of destroying or crippling almost all main battle tanks in use today. It can also fire HEDP (High Explosive Dual Purpose) for use against bunkers, smoke and illumination rounds. In an emergency, it can be operated with just one man and the latest M3 version is a favourite of NATO Special Forces. A modern classic. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold a London or Birmingham proof mark and certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
