Had to give up on leaving the Airsoft feed ramp in place... However have finished the design for the universal compact recoil unit (Universal as in can be used with Shermans/Stug/Panther side elevation units).

Size comparisons...
Original Clark Clone (Left), JCC Compact Recoil (Centre), JCC Universal Servo Recoil (Right)

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Gen4-012

Yes the Universal is a bit fatter in body, but will come with multiple options.
  • Impact Spring/Recoil system (Similar to Centre)

  • Direct Linkage Recoil System (on Right side)

  • Option of Tails: Standard long end cam style/Servo Linkage

  • Maximum 19mm (3/4") stroke with tail installed

Some dedicated views of the Universal Recoil Unit

Showing off the new side elevation groove

New servo location (right side of turret)

When installed in a side elevation mount this end makes it super compact compared to the original HL unit.

So I redesigned the next Gen JCC Compact recoil unit.

First Prototype? To be installed in my youngest son's Jagdpanther.
Reason? In the July weekend at the KW Garrison, my youngest actually broke the 3D printed barrel (the part that the servo actuates) from hitting the JP's long barrel sideways over and over...
Perfect time to rebuild (or excuse)….

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2059
New Mantlet mount printed and the brass sleeve for guiding the barrel under recoil (Measured to fit the front edge of the ‘saukopf’ mantlet).

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2060
Sleeve is just push fit into place currently (It will be secured or CA'd next...)

Actual function of the recoil w/o any lubrication used...


Next week I will 3D print a replacement ‘saukopf’ with a lower axis IR Emitter port.

Mantlet modeling complete... Now to print it tonight and do the trial and error fitment...

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2064
Complete assembly with 3d printed mantlet. Still needs the IR Emitter tube installed. Brass sleeve and mantlet are a very good friction fit and will not need to be screwed together.

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2063
You can see the brass sleeve for the barrel just inside the mantlet, it was a pita. 16mm OD brass tube into a 15.7mm opening = a bunch of filing and brute force to install the sleeve.

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2065
In full extension.

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2066
Maximum barrel retraction of 19mm with elevation tails.

Final version of the Gen 4 is complete...
Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Final-10

The unit will come with a spring & one linkage for impacts (Z-link shown is what I want the pliers for).
Both standard and servo linkage tails.
Can also be used with side elevation systems (Panther/Sherman/Stug, & to which tails are not needed unless you use the spring).

The production of Gen 4 universal has begun....

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Img_2072

Each Body/barrel has been sanded already to have smooth operation... Bottom right is one of the three prototypes... (One is mounted already in Justin's JP, one mounted to the bulldog mantlet in the lower left.)

Designing the next generation universal recoil kit.

Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Gen5-p10
A few more components, but an even smaller footprint. Current design precludes usage in a Tail elevation style.
It will however have a Side elevation attachment that can be installed.


Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Gen5-p12
But why do you have Bolt on pivots? The answer is simple to give, but not to design.
This design will have an option to install a traverse for fixed casemate TD's (hopefully).


Big Mike's Recoil system & manlet mounts - Page 2 Gen5-p11
A rough size comparison to the Gen 4 versions currently finalized.

Again. Prototype concept design... May be scrapped, but will definitely get refined.

Will these fit a Taigen T-34?

I'd have to see the turret to know 100%.
