Help please

Post by Vince Cutajar » Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:33 am

Tiger 643.jpg
As one can see from the above photo, the barrel of the Tiger 1 has a locking ring with slots cut in the ring for a large C spanner. Could somebody advise me if there are two or three slots in this barrel locking ring?

Thanks in advance.

Vince

Very interesting Mark, I've always seen two "notches" do you have photos in which you see that they are three?
Thanks Ivano

I checked,
i confirm that there are two "notches", at least in this tank,
can be seen clearly in this photo. However, you can also see clearly on 131.

Hi Vince,

Sorry for this late reply and yes it was 2 slots on this barrel ring.
On the Vimoutiers Tiger they was at 4 and 10 o’clock.

Kind regards
Kent
