Antique World War Two WW2 American US Gunners Quadrant 1939 / Leather Cased

Circa 1940 

This is a an original WWII-era M1 Gunner’s Quadrant, a portable precision levelling instrument used for laying artillery weapons in elevation. 

Used to measure their angles of elevation, and checking the elevation mechanisms of fire control equipment. 

The Gunners Quadrant was also used to level the guns of aircraft such as the B-29 Super-fortress and to harmonise the guns with their gun sights.  

The Gunner’s Quadrant was used throughout the US Army with various rifles, guns, gun carriages, self-propelled guns, howitzers, mortars, anti-aircraft gun mounts, cannons, tracked armoured landing vehicles, and multiple rocket launchers.

Complete in a leather carry case with shoulder strap. The case is dated the 26th of August 1939. Not 100% sure if it is the original case for this exact quadrant but it fits perfectly. 

Condition - Very good. 

Case size 20cm X 17cm 

Item No. C113
