Very Cool russ, did you make both of the above, or have them made or what?

Closest thing Ive had was an airpowered cannon that would sink a D battery into a telephone pole from about 75 yards lol

The bronze tube was cast in a foundry, of course. The original owner turned it & bored it oversize. I've done some work to correct the OO's error in the chamber only.The steel tube was commisioned by me recently... but upon reciept, I'm not satisfied with the unauthentic way he did the breech... so I've cut it off & is now on the lathe. After I get done, my son-in-law (recently retired from Electric Boat) will weld it back together. Normally cannon are made in one piece but because of the interchangeable chambers, the front & back sections are joined. I took the mortar as far as I could... now it is with a friend with a CNC mill who will machine for the trunions. He has so much more capability than I have with a 1940's manual machine. I have another swivel cannon replica 1600's "Murderer". 3/4" bore. Also 3 interchangeable chambers. Aboard ship, from a station aloft, with a 3 man crew these swivels would sweap the enemy's upper decks. John Paul Jones mentions this in his 1779 battle against the Serapis, and also the 1812 battles of the Constitution. A tribute to the Marines! Once I get the tubes set, I'll help my friend blacksmith the swivel mount for the steel tube & forge adjust the swivel for the murderer. I'm looking forward to our re-enactments this year & the 4th of July will certainly be noisy. Russ
