I made a deal with a restorer. He has 2 guys working on it. He said he should be done in about a month.

I hope he is right. Neutral

I don't, but the guys that do fire them do. It's the only way you can afford it shoot it.

I'll make some noise! Looks like the restoration shop is quite busy. I'm not too familiar with artillery, but in Your last photo seems like a number of pieces are being restored. I'd like to know what they are. By the way, Your 57mm looks very nice. Rick

That is Marshall Morgan in Paris, TN. You can find him on the web at Ordnance.com.

He does great work, and is easy to deal with.

And thanks....

Well my last piece arrived at Marshall's today.



They say it should be ready next week.

Plan on picking it up on a week from this Saturday.
