    Looks like a M-41 to me. I could be wrong. Either way, you win, when you own a tank!!!

    That thing is awesome. He doesn't happen to have the details of the restoration posted on a website by chance, does he? That would be cool to learn about.

    I bet you could rig up something with propane and a spark igniter to get a pretty good BOOM out of the muzzle.
