This is our newest replica item. A replica brass cannon based on an piece from the Revolutionary and Napoleonic War period. It is based on a muzzle loading English rail or swivel gun from King George the third's reign. It can be a great display piece or noise maker with a little skill. It comes as pictured, solid brass weighing in at approximately 70 pounds.
Vertically cast, rough polished, bored to size and cleaned up. Polish to a high shine or leave as is. The barrel is approximately 27" long, 9" across the trunions, 4" across the muzzle and 4-1/2” at the breech. The bore is lathe turned to 1-5/8" as are the trunions. It has a crest cast on it for George the 3rd. Brass guns like this were used on naval vessels for the fighting tops, as swivel guns on the rails, as signal cannon and as life saving cannons. Or, you can mount it in a naval carriage if you want. A great display piece.
Perfect for period re-enactment, every navel vessel needs great guns! Merchant vessels carried these to repel pirates and pirates carried them to capture merchant vessels. These were used by American forces during the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 as they were common and versatile.
Price per barrel is $1400.00
Polishing available for an additional $400.00 per barrel.
