OK Guys, how often do one of these come available? This is a full size Hern Iron Works model 1841 6 pounder Cannon in gray iron. It is unfired and unmounted. The bore diameter is 3 1/2 inch, Total length is 65 1/2", Trunnions are 3 5/8" and it weighs 850 lbs! This is a full size black powder cannon! After shipping you will pay over $2k for this same model from the manufacturer. This cannon is unfired, it does display some minor storage ware to the finnish. I purchased this with a friend almost 7 years ago with the intent of building a carriage and shooting it in competition, but alas life got busy, I was deployed to Iraq (twice), got married, and now my wife and I are having a baby....Soooo.. My loss, your gain! Hern takes a one inch industrial no seam pipe, threads the base, caps the pipe and welds it, then pours a cast of a cannon around the pipe. The result is a perfect rendition of a full size black powder cannon. These are routinely shot, and I personally have shot a friends with live canister shot at a junker car. Its amazing!I make no guaranties to any one who doesn't do the research on how to load and shoot these. Offered here this one time before I auction it off. Price is $1500! You will have to make arrangements to pick it up in Upper East Tennessee as again it weighs 850 lbs and I am not going to even attempt to ship it. Its a black powder weapon so it doesn't need an FFL or any other License to buy or own it. PM me for details and first "I WILL TAKE IT" gets it.

Actually the right powder for cannons is 1F granulation or cannon grade if you can get it.
Goex still produces 1F, and there are no shipping hassles.

This Cannon sold a year ago. This is not a comment forum. Mods please delete this thread and sorry for a Newb resurrecting this for whatever reason. Obviously hasn't read the rules.
