We recently restored an early 1893 dated Watervliet 3.6 inch mortar on it’s original M1890 carriage and added it to our collection. Pitted barrel bore and bolt but in working condition and shows great. The muzzle is marked; 1893, No.17, inspected by S.E.D., Captain Sydney E. Stuart. I have located only 23 f the 78 that were made, and of that number only 10 are in private hands and potentially available for sale. This gun is for sale at this time. I am always looking to acquire additional M1890 Mortars.
