Artillery Projectile - Lifting Ring


#1

Anybody know where I can get/buy a lifting ring for a 175mm artillery projectile?

Google hasn’t been much help.

Try posting it on the “buy-sell-trade” part of the forum.

For some reason, lifting plugs, fuze covers, rotating band grommets, and primer protectors are almost impossible to find. I suppose they were used over and over so the ratio to projectiles or powder cases is not high but you would think there would be some of them left around somewhere. I think it’s a combination of most people not knowing what they are, and the scrap value.

If you happen to locate any of these, let us all know.

It appears there is one in your own backyard… Des Moines, IA.

I’ll send you an e-mail.

Done, but it looks like proxfuze might be a big help on this.

If you don’t get one, let me know. I may know someone who has one or two for sale.
