In the construction of the gun carriage, the Germans used steel metal rolling, which is not in the range of Russian metal rolling. At the top of the corner, bent out of the steel stripe,fused wire, and cleaned with a grinding machine.

cradle of the gun barrel.
inside the carriage on bearings and the pneumatic cylinder should be placed. Very little space.
Square tubes with a smooth radius of corners, could not be found. Had to do so.

Sector of vertical movement of the gun barrel.

Managed to purchase a similar, from another weapons. It is the same in size, but different mounting bracket and missing teeth.
Missing teeth are formed by welding, followed by grinding cutting machine.
The bracket is cut by the cutting machine and the desired shape is formed by welding.

The mechanism of the vertical movement of the barrel was not very much affected, and in General remained operational. Its functionality was restored.

But the mechanism of the horizontal movement of the gun barrel, was from the side affected by the explosion. He was completely absent.

It was decided to make it on the basis of a hand drill

Shields.

There is nothing particularly complicated. Part of the original boards, the other part is made anew.

The upper left shield was intact. But severely bent by the explosion.
Tried to straighten him out in the press. He cracked like glass. German steel is high carbon. It has the properties of a spring, but quite fragile.



As expected, there is a crack next to the weld. It was possible to cook with a preheating gas burner.

The design of mounting shields.

The right side suffered only from corrosion. She's mostly original. The left was made anew.





(For the possibility of rapid movement were temporarily installed wheels from a car)

Pre-assembly

The upper Central movable shield is fixed on the gun barrel with special quick-detachable mounts. I decided to repeat them
