    ~ USA M20 75mm Recoilless Rifle Gun ~


    Around the chamber entrance is a stamp that reads:

    "RIFLE 7.5 M20 NO.348WVT R.S"

    Attached is a scope mount, which has a plate that reads :-

    "Mount Telescope, T103, Serial No2012".

    The rifle comes with the deactivation certificate, dated 16/4/13.

    These were often mounted on Jeeps but I have also seen one on a rather top heavy Vespa scooter.
