    The barrel in the picture- Whether it is AM-23? Not previously seen. Cannon has found a bunch of scrap metal. There was a propane gas cut in half. There might be different guns? (google translate :confused: )

    I don't know if that is AM-23 barrel, but the receiver surely is from AM-23. I imagined that this muzzle brake could be useful for bomber's turrents to prevent fuselage damage by muzzle blast, but I found no picture of Soviet bombers showing it.

    I'm too ;) If you mean that the barrel may come from a different gun - it sure could.

    It almost looks like some pieces from a boiler.

    This is a 23mm gun barrel.
    Perhaps someone somewhere has seen this?

    Is it possible that the barrel is from a water-cooled assembly, and you're seeing the part that's normally covered by the water jacket (therefore not familiar looking)?

    I don't think that's the muzzle break (muzzle break for 1/3 to 1/2 of the barrel length?), how many rifling twist are inside the barrel?
