I`d shoot it & the 13.2 X 92 MM cartridge never ever had more energy than a .50 BMG. The .50 BMG was almost 5mm larger at the base & rimless & 7mm longer !................

There's a gun dealer that lives about 2 hours from me that actually has 1 of these.

Apparently the crew that manned this thing got hit with a flame thrower because the stock is black from a fire.
The Germans apparently had trouble finding troops to fire it because it was renown for breaking shoulders if not held properly.

My ex-wife's Grandfather brought one of these things home from the great war. It hung over his fireplace for a number of years. A cousin inherited it, wouldn't sell it to me. Instead he donated it to the VFW in Seymour Iowa when he couldn't find ammo for it.

That was 30 years ago. I wonder if it's still there (it had a broken stock).

I just saw the same posting on Armslist for Texas (on a hunt for a Garand), this raised a few red flags...
The post was modified to include a bringback story, the price was different, but the pictures were exactly the same. Maybe this is a scam or someone copied it and saw a good was to make a few grand?
