US ARMY 75mm RECOILESS RIFLE M20 ANTI-TANK WEAPON US Army 7 ft. long recoilless rifle (original bipod and canvas cover and shells) 75 mm Recoilless Rifle / M 20 Anti- Tank weapon. This World War II 75 millimeter recoilless rifle (de-activated) is in excellent condition with it’s 5 foot long barrel and original stand, not a .30 caliber machine gun stand that is usually found on these guns. Incredibly, this gun includes its original canvas carrying case, scope, and two fired rounds. At 6 feet 10 inches long, this powerhouse had a range of 7,000 yards and would penetrate a full four inches of armor. The recoilless rifle was a powerful weapon and used primarily as an anti-tank weapon, but also against infantry and lightly armored vehicles. Produced late in World II when the need for a good anti-tank weapon was necessary, this M20 was used straight through the end of World War II in both theatres of war. In the Korean War where it was successfully used by Allied forces as an anti-tank and anti-personnel weapon, it was a favorite among the troops. Lightweight due to the use of a perforated round, the M20 was phased out before Korea. Era / Conflict: WWII . Country: US
