The M79 mount is used with the jeep item 3

This mount could be used with the mule but will require modifications to hold the mount so the mule could be driven. PROBLEM this mount will hold the rifle at least 18 inches higher than the mule under bed mount and will cause the mule to be unstable. The gun and M79 mount will weigh more that 600 pounds.

The M27 Mount is used with the Mule item 4

Muleman is on time and on target!

There has been a lot of confusion about 106-mounts & Nomenclature. If you have a 106-mm project I highly recommend you find a copy of TM-9-1000-205-12 dated March 1959 "Operator and Organizational Maintenance Manual" for Recoilless Rifle 106-mm. The basic manual covers the M79 mount into jeep, M38A1C. Change 1 dated 17 July 1963, adds the M92 mount for the M274 Mule, also nomenclature changes of mounts & tripod. Change 2 dated 13 October 1965 adds mounting the M79 mount into M151A1C. Emery Mule LLC now has those changes and they should be available soon.
Note; just as an FYI the M79 mounts (sometimes called wheel barrel mount) are slightly different, M38A1C early M79 does not have a bracket added at wheel end of mount, bracket was added for M151A1C installation.
Hope this helps!
