40mm bronze muzzle loader replica of an 18-pounder

This cannon is a 40mm bronze muzzle loader replica of an 18-pounder “USS Constitution” of 1812. (Dimensions: 5” shaft stock diameter, 26” overall length, 14” overall width, 85 lbs. approximate weight in wooden carriage). The replica can be produced in either bronze or stainless steel. The cannon rests in a pecan naval-style carriage of the type originally used for firing cannons from a ship deck. These carriages have over 135 hand-crafted parts assembled using West System marine epoxy resin glue and the solid bronze appointments are individually machined, polished and lacquered. All of our carriages feature non-marring acetal wheels and are equipped with rings for lashing making them suitable for firing aboard a boat with no additional chocking.
