This offering is for one used WW-2 TURRET MANTLETapplicable to the G103 series M-3, M-5 Stuart Tanks and possibly other models fitted with a 37mm g_n.
Early M-5 Stuart turrets were initially equipped with modified M-3 Stuart mantlets. It was originally planned for a gunner's telescope to be located left of the 37mm g_n as they were on the M3s. Later M-5 turrets had an M23 g_n mount and roof mounted M4 periscopic sight for the g_nner and the "through mantlet" telescopic sight was eliminated. This one has the telescope hole covered with awelded intapered plug. I'm sure it could be removed if necessary for an M-3 application. Local pickup at the Eagle Creek Airport, Indianapolis, IN is ok.
