I was contacted by the curator at the National Guard Militia Museum of NJ and he needs help to ID this gun.

Any ideas welcome.

Its a 37mm Bethlehem Mark A Model 1 Gun. I have 20 on my list and will have 21 when you tell me more about this one. You can thank Glen for this info, I was drawing a blank....

The gun is at the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey in Sea Girt. They have a nice collection of vehicles, guns and equipment.

Thanks for the ID!

This gun is similar to a gun shown on History Channel's new show "Lock N' Load" with R. Lee Ermey on the field artillery episode:

http://www.history.com/video.do?name=LockNLoad

The gun is shown on Pt 3 near the end of the segment. They call it a MK-XII gun 1.65" but no other info is given. Is this a different model of the same gun or a different gun altogether?

Where else can these Bethlehem guns be seen?

Thanks,

BB-61

armyjunk,

Thanks for the list.
Are these guns listed in museums or outside?
