I've got a homemade one I built out of a 45-70 trapdoor barrel. The wheels came from DGW.



I've got this barrel I got from Mazo awhile back. I need to get busy on a carriage for it.

I really like that one with the green carriage Hawg. That's a nice looking piece.

I have a bunch of barrel ends from pistols I've cut down. I saved them because I thought I might try doing something like you've done and make a little canon.

It certainly will augment my BP cost
I'm guessing that 200 grains will pop out a round ball pretty smartly. My 1" bore cannon will do a back flip with 125 grains of powder. L@.

First off, I would have to know how to post a video. Otherwise you will have to be content with seeing a big cloud of smoke and an upside-down artillery piece! *6'

Might wanna back off a lil on that. I don't think they're supposed to do back flips. (7+" (7+" (7+"

Ya think?! When I shot the first mortar that I built, I started off with about 10 grains of powder. You could see the ball in flight!
