Default 2 pdr on 6 pdr Mk 4 carriage

Hi, Does anyone know where there is a 2pdr on a 6pdr mk4 carriage?, I am replicating some parts. I have attached a pic of one in the factory.

Default Ask Mr. Love

Many years ago one was shipped to Shilo along with Bill Gregg's collection.

I have a photo of it here somewhere. Rob probably sees it once a week.

Thanks gents, Charlie Im looking for photos of this area of the gun, where the saddle pivot comes through the bearing keep, taken from the side so I can see the end face of the pivot shaft.

Not so sure. We have a 2 pounder outside the museum, but I think it is on the normal 2 pdr chassis. There is also the David type 2 pounder hyper velocity barrel with a 6 pdr breech ring that is on a chassis that I believe is marked for both guns. But that gun resides on the base golf course, which I do not visit.

I'm off work for a few days, but if your answer doesn't show up by then, I'll see what I can find.

There's one standing next to the 95mm infantry howitzer at Shilo, as in my link above.

Right you are Adrian. I was sure that one was on the smaller chassis. I have done the tires on the gun next to it, but I don't think I have ever done anything to that one aside from putting it up on jackstands. I do have to change the tires on it at some point.
