Would the Orange Hobby barrel the Magach 6 work for Merkava 1 and 2s or are there differences
With shortening and modifying to fit the kit’s accordion dust cover. yes.
As it is no (only as 18Bravo writes above).The gun is the same but the way it is placed is way different. From the bore evacuator and to the rear there are huge differences, both to the thermal shroud and the accordion because the gun “protrudes” way less from the turret of the Merkava than the Magach 6B.
