Hmm. That was my first thought but then I concentrated on the protruding cylinder underneath the tube. It appears big and single. I would expect two cylinders in the F-22. :?

Two cylinders (recuperator and recoil brake) of slightly different length typical for F-22:

For Sturm78, as a TWAG (Total Wild Ass Guess), 12"/52 pattern 1907. Comparing the bore to the sentry's head, seems too large to be 180mm. The 12" barrel was stepped, while the 180mm was a straight taper. If I could see under the cammo nets, possibly could make a more scientific guess.

Thank you, Art. The end with the 2 cylinders is quite damaged then on my picture.
