Default 6 pdr 7 cwt recoil length

If someone has a 6 pdr A/T gun manual, could they please look up and post the length of recoil (metal to metal)?

Would like it to compare to other A/T guns of the Second World War, but it is an artillery manual that I don't have.

Thanks

Mike

That looks like and accidental discharge....the gun went off on the closing of the breech. Ouch.



We had a Sgt get in the way of the breech on a Giat LG1 back when I was attached to the artillery. It caught him in the leg.....he was not walking right for a while after that.
