1911 United States Mark VII Landing Gun for sale

  • This gun was designed by RH.M.F in 1908 and was manufactured by American & British Mfg. Co. Of Bridgeport Conn.
  • These guns were the mainstay of the United States Marines from 1911 to just before the introduction of the 75mm pack howitzer in World War 2.
  • We have researched to see whether any are represented in US Government or private museums and come up none in stock! It is probable that all of these guns were sold to the Dutch Government before the fall of the Dutch East Indies to the Japanese in 1942 and exported to Australia.
There are only two intact guns left in Australia, as far as we know, and we have seen almost all of what is out there. This is the ONLY one that is for sale we know of ANYWHERE in the world!
  • They were reworked for Martin Parry gear, but could be returned to wooden wheel configured reasonably easily.
  • Functioning traverse, elevation and breech block opens and shuts. Minor breech block components are missing.
