the mortar and the mg 42 are mine, we are a living history group. I just returned from my 3rd tour in Iraq as a military advisor for the Iraqi army.
In this pic we just finished filming for a PBS TV documentary on WW2.

Interesting base plate. It's different from mine. What kind it that? I saw a sight about a week after I purchased my mortar, but was tapped out and couldn't afford it. Unfortunately the slide in portion for the sight is de-milled anyways.
