    Default M109A4 155mm Howitzer

    Anyone know any scrapyards etc. that may have some M109A4 stuff kicking around? Need some minor bits for the museum's M109A4 (details in the Classified/ Parts Wanted section) and have pretty much exhausted every route I could think of.

    Have you tried asking TACOM, Tank and Automotive Command?

    The reason I asked, is I might know someone in TACOM.

    Ah, sorry...didn't know anyone had replied.

    One complication with that route is the M109 belongs to a small Canadian museum, so I doubt TACOM would be too willing to assist because of that. Unfortunately everything got melted down at the scrap contractors before the needed bits and pieces could be scrounged, but it looks like the APUs were removed before the contractor started torching...though nobody seems to know why, or where they wound up.

    Well, if you want to still give it a try, I have a contact. And maybe they can give you a lead to a Canadian version of TACOM. Can't hurt.

    Sure. Can only try. I'll see if I can find the NSNs of the bits I need out of the 24Ps as that's probably the place to start.

    Sent a PM, as putting someone email and phone number in here just kinda sounds like a not good idea. They or there boss might not like it. Good luck!!
