37mm is a lot easier to reload too. Cases can be found and solid projos can be made by any machinists. Ammo is solid shot so is legal to make without getting a DD form for each round.

FWIW there were almost four times as many 37mm AT guns produced as there were Pack Howitzers.  You're probably more likely to find a good dewat of one of those for less $$.  They also weigh half as much so easier to tow behind a Jeep

Good to know and thanks.

Those might be some good places to start looking at.  You could always contact the owner of that PACK 75 and see if they have any contacts or links to someone.

You might also try G503.com.  A replica Pack was sold there two years ago for $14.5K.  Ouch!

im restoring a 6lb british piece for a friend right now.    sucker is heavy.    he bought it as a dewat.   probably will just fire blanks when done. the breech has been modified so it wont fire anything at this time.   another close friend just brought home a 40mm pak ,    I think that's correct.    he filed the paperwork to restore it back to useable condition.    my point is that they are out there.   ive built two 37mm Russian/german  repos for using in ww2 reenactments. 12 guage shotgun shells with black powder.    they look great from the front.   breech is not correct but they tow great behind my jeep and make noise. lol   good luck on your search.   and yes I own a Thompson and scabbard.   lol

This one's a bargain... (relatively) cheaper to shoot and it will tow behind a jeep way better than a 57mm
