German 105mm leFH18 L/28
barrel for StuH 42 G (late)

#35 L-18
Review by Terry Ashley

This barrel is for the late model StuH 42 G with the leFH18 105mm barrel and has the short barrel in aluminium with rifling included in the drilled out muzzle plus four brass parts and nine etched parts for the muzzle brake.

Unassembled parts

The muzzle brake is in one piece with the centre ring being inserted from the front and this requires some filing around the outer ring to get a good fit, but check often so you don’t make the ring too loose.

The two etched rings are added to the inner ring and to the muzzle end cap as well as three small fittings on the top rear of the muzzle brake.

assembled barrel

Another short but excellent barrel with well defined details in the muzzle brake and the rifling adding another touch that is well worth the little effort along the way.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to Michael from Airconnection for the sample barrel.
