    Hello Loice.
    Thank you very much for the information about the producer. I will try to get more bipod photos if possible.
    Regards Łukasz

    Bipod granatwerfer 73? Am I right?

    Hello Łukasz,

    In fact, it is a bipod for the 8cm Gr.W.34, it is often referred to as a T-profile bipod
    or makeshift bipod and has arisen from the scarcity of materials. Since it appeared quite late in the war
    it is often (incorrectly) called GrW. 34/1 bipod, but this cannot be documented. I always read 8cm Mortar 73 when this bipod appears,
    I don't know who put this name into the world but it is completely wrong and not proof.

    But back to the bipod, it still has a lot of Einheitsfarbe 43, maybe you can get detailed photos of the red marked sections?
    The manufacturer should be able to find there.




    greetings

    At the beginning I would like to thank everyone who shares their knowledge here.
    Last year, I saw a ground plate sale offer, and I thought I would build it. Here she is ...
    Does anyone recognize the manufacturer?

    Regards Łukasz.

    Hello Łukasz,

    you have a relatively early base plate from the manufacturer "J.G.u.S." which means as much as "Johannes Gollnow und Sohn" from Stettin
    (today Szczecin in Poland) later, with the beginning of April 1940 the manufacturer got the code "bfh" and was one of the largest manufacturers for 8cm Gr.W.34.
    but with this early manufacturer's mark, such base plates are very rare to find.


    greetings

    Nice base plate. Unfortunately I do not know who the manufacturer is. Does it say JGuS?

    For comparison, here is a tube left in the original condition from the former military stocks of Norway. If anyone is interested, the tube will not longer stay in my collection.

    Hello,


    to clarify this correctly.

    The Mortar shown on the photos comes from Bulgaria and is now offered by Zib-Militaria (German militari dealer).

    The Mortar (bipod, base plate, tube and optical sight) are „in basic“ orig. german production before 1945.
    The tube is as I write an orig. german production but was rebuilt / renewed by the Bulgarian army after 1945,
    the renewed parts and areas are the extension which was attached on the muzzle (original muzzle ist lost) and the tube-soul were expanded from 81.4mm to 82.2mm.
    Everywhere were added new serial numbers, basically the tube is completely destroyed and is no longer worth to be collected.

    The tube extension was mounted by the Bulgarians to have a higher accuracy and range,
    most of these Bulgarian Gr.W.34 are imported between 2013 and 2014 to Germany and other Western European countries.


    regards
    Loice

    Hi guys!

    I've bought this 8cm tube a year ago. i have some free time now, so made plans for the restoration. Someone applied new black paint, so had to remove it. But, underneath the black paint i found some numbers. The numbers are 2(z?) 1 7 6 .

    Any clue about those numbers?

    Also, im still looking for the legs. So if anyone knows a place , let me know!

    Thanks!

    Very very nice. Thanks for posting.
    Yes, Photobucket literally killed millions of imageposts all over the internet overnight.
    But there is a facebookgroup dedicated to s.Gr.W.34. Lots of nice images and information there:
