Is there anyone out there who has/sells plans to make a dummy panzerschreck? A buddy of mine who is a machinist is looking for a project.

Thanks,
Jim

Get loads of reference photos (all over the net) and base your measurements on the inside diameter of the tube - The size of the round is a clue to that.
But remember in UK if you are making a replica - make the internal diameter under or oversize (preferably undersize) and pin the tube so as to prevent a projectile being launched.

Hardest bit is the shield as it was pressed. Simon Garner (now of GD Recon) made the best I have yet seen for me some years ago.

If you are going to use pyro in it then get seamless tube.... I've seen a bad accident happen when a seamed tube came apart next to the firer's head (no injury except to hearing)

I've got one or two decent photos of one hanging on a wall in the Gebirgsjager Museum in the Hohenfestung Salzburg.
I think I have some of the replica Simon built too.
