Default Half-scale Napoleon Cannon - Golfball Bore !!! (Sold, Pending Funds)

Sold, Pending Funds

I've had a lot of fun with this one but it is time to start thinning the herd as I don't get to play with it as often as I would like. This is a half-scale Napoleon cannon with a just under 1 3/4" bore... sized for golfballs !!! The wheels are 30" diameter and designed for live fire cannon use... they won't be shaking apart anytime soon. The barrel is double sleeved with seamless tubing. It was originally a 2 1/4" bore and then reduced down to take golfballs. It is approximately 36" long, just over 5" diameter at the breech and just over 4" diameter at the muzzle. Barrel and carriage combined weigh approximately 475 pounds. Comes with everything you need.... powder, ball, fuse, all required implements for loading and cleaning, bore gauge etc. Even comes with a mold for making up 1 pound round shot from lead or wheelweight !!!

I'm located in Victorville (near San Bernardino) and would drive a reasonable distance to deliver.

It's time to get this sold as I need to fund a new project....



Put this in the back of your pickup and you won't be having any tailgaters !!!

What a cute little toy. I wish I could afford it. Are the wheels originals from a mountain Howitzer? Do you have a limber for it? Who made the tube? Who made the carriage?

The wheels were Amish-made... tube from Hern Iron Works. No limber, never got around to making one. I built the carriage.

Does the tongue have a ball mount for the freeway?!?! So when you shoot it do you go to the driving range?

1200 yards or more... depending on elevation and powder charge.

I find it funny that some thing like this is completely legal but we have to lock our AR mags....

I was seriously just about to ask if anyone owns one of these things. I always wanted to build one of my own but haven't got around to even thinking about what I would do with it.

Yes, I could ship but it would probably be a little on the expensive side. What area do you live in?

Man, this would be fun to take to the range! I've got a local 200 yard range...it'd be freakin' sweet to take this out there and get a crowd around...and 200 yards would be nothing, so I wouldn't be spending a lot of money on powder lol!

GLWS, I have WAY too much debt to buy something as fun as this...lol!

Depends on how many shots per hole I suppose. Putting could be interesting.

Another technical question. Is the flash hole large enough for friction primers? Or, do you have to use (non-period correct) fuse instead? You should also post pics of the implements. I'm assuming that you have a little worm, a pair of sponges (wet and dry) and a rammer. What kind of head is on the rammer?

The vent hole is currently drilled for fuse or "post-it note" quills... too small for friction primers. It could easily be enlarged to allow their use but never saw reason to as the cannon itself is not period correct... and friction primers cost close to a buck each where fuse is practically free by comparison.

Yes... worm, sponges (2), rammer and linstock are all present. Also chest that holds 20 or so balls with attached sabots. The head of the rammer is turned with a tapered section facing towards the handle end. I had thought of adding pictures of them but figured that it would be just as easy to send additional pictures to anyone that is seriously interested (something which has yet to happen).

I'd asked "nick" his location figuring that if he is within a hundred or two miles I could deliver it but have as of yet to hear back from him. Probably should have asked via PM rather than just replying to his post.

I'd consider any serious offer on this cannon but so far there haven't been any.

He says "Sacramento" but when posting in a different thread it's "Anaheim". There is an old Russian proverb... "doveryai, no proveryai". Ronald Reagan used the English translation often... "Trust, but verify".

If you buy it with your own funds, she should not be able to get a judge to grant her either. Just tell her to go buy her own!
