Hey,
The crew of PT 728 is trying to restore the 20mm AA gun on the stern of our boat. Again this is something i've taken great interests in . I've searched the web endlessly and can't find a 20mm AA gun 60 round ammo drum. If you know where one is for sale, please let me know. Oh and if you know where I can buy a WW2 U.S.N Kapok life jacket, well i'd appreciate that too.

Try and email Jerry Gilmartin or Don Shannon or even the various warship museums about those items, they'd have the best leads but I think a single person would be hard-pressed to get both of those items.

Oh and I sent an email to the USS North Carolina about getting a few of their life jackets and ammo drum. Haven't heard back from them either.

It's for the twin mounted version. You can see a twin at the bottom of this page:
