Americas 75 mm M1A1 Pack Howitzer of World War II forms the unique historical and technical bridge in the artillery world between the shock-and-awe of the howitzers of World War I and today’s modern artillery. The Pack Howitzer was designed before helicopters existed to transport artillery to strategic locations. Instead, it was designed to be disassembled and actually packed up to mountain tops using horses or mules. This Pack Howitzer was made in 1942, so its early life included almost all of World War II. These weapons were used extensively by the US Marine Corp in almost every major landing in the South Pacific. They were dropped by glider into Operation Market Garden, then used by American and Allied soldiers throughout the European Theatre. US Pack Howitzers were distributed to many nations after WWII and have been part of many armed conflicts throughout the world since then. They were even seen in use by Yugoslavian Forces during the Balkans wars in the 1990s. I have had this howitzer for 28 years. It is of an ideal size, easily towable with a pick-up truck or a jeep, unlike larger artillery that requires a 2 ½ ton 6X6 truck to transport it to a shooting range or a show. Includes tow ring adapted to standard 2" trailer hitch receiver. It is also small enough to be moved through double doors without being disassembled, so it can enhance a large den or display room. It comes with numerous accessories, manuals, shell casings and tools. Must transfer to a C&R license holder or through a destructive device dealer, destructive device manufacturer or destructive device importer in your state. The breechblock of the Pack Howitzer is the only registered part of the howitzer. So, if you purchase this, you can immediately take possession of all of the howitzer except the breech block. The breech block will then convey to you once the transfer to you is approved by ATF. This US M1A1 75 mm pack howitzer is live, fully transferable and an important historic item you can enjoy for decades, as I have. $100,000. Call on questions. 575-405-0911. Thank you
