Italian mortars Brixia model 35. In service with the Wehrmacht.

Good evening friends! Finally we did it. Italian Mortar Brixia 35. Was able to confirm the legend told by participants in the events of World War II. According to the Red Army soldiers, the Italian mortar Brixia could fire a shot towards residential buildings. And hit the enemy with a projectile, flying through a narrow window. We have restored the mortar and brought it back to its original state. It really works. Reconstruction of the Stalingrad events, during the war, was carried out in November 2020. Sorry for my poor English. Best regards, Alex.

Mortar by the Red Army, used in 1939, or 1941. It was found in 2015, on the site of the old border, Poland and Belarus. But he used the Mortar as 4.5 cm Granatwerfer 176. On the reconstruction of the events of the war 2020, in the street battles of Stalingrad https://youtu.be/_sa6EIiWeNw

Brixia seems to be an attempt of an automatic grenade launcher instead of a mortar, now the ubiquitous 40mm AGL's or the Soviet AGS17/30's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGS-17

Brixia is the most expensive and complex mortar in production.

Did you restore it from that rusty condition in your last photo posted? If so, that is incredible work!

I just purchased one that was brought home to the USA from WW2. Luckily, it shows very little wear and was registered so it can be kept original and fired. I found your post while searching the internet.

Currently I am working on making a reproduction magazine for the blanks. Could you tell me how thick the metal is that was used for the magazine? Also, if you could tell me the inside and outside dimensions that would be very helpful. Does the magazine taper from back to front?

Thanks!
