There is one Pak 43 in a forest with free access in Luxembourg but some stupids stole the muzzle brake recently...
There is another one in Wiltz ( Luxembourg also ), maybe some readers could help you.

Pak vs KwK : is there a difference ?

It need to be the type of muzzle brake that was used on the Jagdpanther and King Tiger in 1944.

I would contact the guys who restore the Kingtiger in switzerland, its gun is at the moment on the ground next to the tank, so easy access.

Would you believe it, Bernd at the King Tiger restoration just contacted me and gave me some of the dimensions that I am looking for. Bernd has also helped me on other questions that I have on the King Tiger. The team that restores the King Tiger in Switzerland are great people.
