Thanks, I just figured out why my phone, on how to post pictures. I'll have better pictures when I get a chance to take more, that was just a test picture.

Looks great. Good job on it. One thing you may want to add is the rear section of the barrel is left in bare steel since it is part of the recoil system. You can see it below.

We (Marines) sprayed the rear part of the barrel with a gray-colored dry lubricant. But I can for the life of me think of what is was called.

Nice job. The lube is lithium grease.

I appreciate the compliments, also the things, I missed in my references, I should have asked HeavyArty aka Gino, because hes worked in artillery, But there is other stuff I wanted to add, an stuff is missing because it broke, but it was my first time completing a model and showing it on the internet.

I'll have better lighting and camera, setup for my next models.
