2 Customer Reviews "This is a nice replica of an M9A1 bazooka. I'm going to use this for reenacting.
However, there are some changes to make before using for this purpose.
1. The sight that comes with the bazooka is junk. Find an original sight and attach it. The thread on the original sight bolt is 40 TPI, so you'll have to get a thread tap and still and tap your own screw. Not hard if you are patient.
2. Replace the postwar-style grip with a WW2 grip.
3. Repaint with flat OD paint. The OD camo paint in a rattle can from Walmart works great for this.
It turned out great and will look the past on the field. It's of quality construction; you're not going to easily break this thing. It's 5 feet long and weighs 15 pounds. Made almost entirely out of steel. When brown into two pieces, the lock together nicely for transport. When assembled for use the pieces lock positively with little wobble.
One thing I did to mine was add two more locking cutouts in two of the the locking lugs; they turned out great and actually lock tighter with less wobble than the single cutout the bazooka came with.
Compared to other replicas, this piece is worth every penny. They did their research with this one. "Face it, I am a collector of heavy weapons and things I will most likely never use in the field. So when I saw this M9 Rocket Launcher, I had to have it. The Bazooka arrived quickly from Evike after its cross country trip to my house in fine shape.
Upon opening, I found the launcher to be well packaged and presented in the box. There are no instructions with this, so you have to figure it out yourself, but it isn't too hard. The launcher comes in three parts. Two tubes and the sight make up the sub assemblies. They also included a gas grenade shell with the set.
The two halves of the tube fit together nicely and are very authentic. There is a very slight wobble present that I plan to work on eliminating with some shims. The locking cam, which holds the tubes in place once they are twisted together suffers a bit with a very weak "mouse trap" spring. That will be replaced with a more robust spring. The sight, which is attached by a large bolt that you have to take apart, fits okay. It is all plastic and not very convincing. It is good but not great. I found a real M9 sight online at SARCO and ordered it along with a surplus bazooka sling. The trigger has a safety which indexes well and the trigger seems well built and robust. The muzzle end of the tube comes apart to hold the grenade shell. The shell fits snugly and the design allows for quick reloading. The other end of the gun has a plastic rocket retainer which feels kind of cheap but it should hold up as it doesn't do anything and it is well protected by the end cage. The entire piece is assembled very well, with mostly metal parts and decent welding. The tube has the machining in the right spot to simulate the reinforcing wire wrapped around tube as in the real M9, as well as all the details on the tube, you would find on the real thing.
The finish is okay. I am not sure if something like this would be finished in a glossy WW2 olive drab color. It seems it should be painted flat OD instead. If that is the case, it will be an easy project. I have to research that.
Finally, while a bit expensive, I was impressed with the quality of the launcher. It is a nice, heavy, well detailed replica of the M9. Along with the right add-ons like the sight, sling, a rocket bag and some replica rockets, it would make an excellent piece for WW2 living history. Write a Review
