Unique late 1800's 4 Gauge Yacht Signal Cannon!

Summer Sale Item!

 

Unique 1800's 4 Gauge Yacht Signal Cannon for sale

 

This Cannon has been in one family as since 1916 and it never had the original breach block.

Many years ago a Southwestern professional gunsmith made a precision, functioning breach-block/firing assembly, with a spring loaded cocking hammer and fired by lanyard.

Due to the high costs of firing (a single original 4 Gauge brass shell, when available, can cost over $30.00 each), this cannon has a stainless steel, custom machined 10 Gauge barrel insert.

This was built allowing it to also fire the much more common 10 Gauge Shotgun blanks.

Black Powder cannon 10 gauge cartridges cost about $2.00 each that are VERY loud with the special loads we have available.

 

Specifications for this Cannon:

  5 inch diameter Brass Wheels with white rubber "tires".

 White hard rubber tires

  Overall length: 28 inches

 Barrel: 19 1/2 inches 

Total Weight:  45 1/2 lbs.

  This is a 30 MM rifled cannon that is a breach loader. It looks a little like a howitzer. The barrel is made from a 4 foot length of demilitarized 30 MM Vulcan cannon barrel. It has a recoil system like the howitzer and loads by putting a cast lead or machined steel or plastic bullet in the breach. Fires with a lanyard and percussion caps. Now available with solid tires at no additional cost!

Black Powder cannon for sale  Black Powder cannon for sale 

Total length: 60 inches
Barrel length: 46 inches
Carriage width: 30 inches
Outside wheels: 37 inches
Weight approximately: 275 lbs.
Wheel dia. 24 inches
Height: 24 inches
Barrel diameter: 2  inch with a taper
The scope is a Tasco World Class 6-24 power.
Note: the reason for the 24 power scope is that this Cannon can shoot up to 2 miles and you not only want to identify your target but also verified that there are no people anywhere around the impact area. The scope is offset about 4 inches from the center of the barrel. The reason for that is that at long distance the barrel may be elevated high enough where it would be in the way of the view of the scope. This is also the reason that the scope elevation moves independent of the barrel. The elevation of the barrel or shooting at any particular distance is determined by the drop table provided and using a protractor at the pivot point of the barrel to set for the proper degree. The scope just gives you the left or right aiming point and is aimed directly at the target.

LEGAL ISSUES on Antique and Black powder cannons.

 Firearms in this country (USA), particularly those deemed to be “destructive devices”, are tightly regulated by BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms). The question then becomes: is a cannon a destructive device? According to Federal Regulations, a cannon that is “not capable of firing fixed ammunition and manufactured on or before 1898, and replicas thereof, are antiques and not subject to the provisions of either the Gun Control Act of 1968 or the National Firearms Act of 1934”. Fixed ammunition refers to a projectile and powder charge than can be loaded as a single unit. By this definition, even a percussion primed breech loader is exempt if the powder and shot are loaded separately.
