61635 Original WWII Jap Knee Mortar Deactivated $1185

If you ask any WWII Pacific War vet they will all have stories about the knee mortar.  The Japs were notoriously accurate with these mortars.  It was said they could put a round right in your back packet.  Unlike most mortars of the period, the Japs' mortars were rifled, which was definitely more expensive and time consuming to produce, but made them much more accurate. The Japanese had a serious shortage of everything, and for them it was more advantageous to make a very accurate mortar, and use less projectiles.  The US on the other hand used smooth bore mortars in combination with many projectiles to do the job.  The mortar is in solid original condition, with approximate 70% finish, and an even patina. The numbers appear to be all matching. Its all there in terms of original parts without any issues or problems. It has been deactivated to BATF specs rendering it non-useable with an obstruction welded into the bore, and a hole milled into the high pressure area of the bore approx. the size of the bore.   Overall, it displays really well, and neither the hole nor the welding show from the front. This is a great chance to buy a super souvenir of the Pacific War. Sorry, I can't ship this outside the US..
