10 gauge replica of a 24-pounder

This cannon is a 10 gauge replica of a 24-pounder “USS Constitution” of 1812. (Dimensions: 3” shaft stock diameter, 22” overall length, 10” overall width in carriage, 27 lbs. approximate weight (in wooden carriage). The piece can be produced in either bronze (shown) or stainless steel to rest in an oak naval carriage of the type originally used for firing cannons from a ship deck. The carriages have non-marring acetal wheels and are equipped with rings for lashing making them suitable for firing aboard a boat with no additional chocking. Our carriages have over 150 hand-crafted parts assembled using West System marine epoxy resin glue and the solid bronze appointments are individually machined, polished and lacquered.
