Default Panzer BREECH BLOCK Identification needed - KwK40?

Hey guys,

I came across these, and needed help ID'ing.

I know it is NOT StuK40...but size would appear to be in the 75mm range.

7.5cm Kwk40? 7.5cm Kwk37?

Thoughts or ideas would be great!

TIA

Mike

I think you need to measure the shell case diameter, and so the gun type will be clear.
