A couple of years ago I made a bronze signal cannon for my Dad for his birthday.
I turned and bored a piece of 1 1/8" bronze shaft material. I bored with a 7/16" bit, so it's basically a .44 caliber. I made a couple of tools to go with it. A ram/bore swab and a worm.

I have a video of a test fire also..
We loaded tinfoil charges with about 1/2 teaspoon of pyrodex and damp paper towel wadding.

I love black powder stuff. This year, I'd like to get my hands on an 1858 Remington and a flintlock. I'm drawn toward a Lyman trade rifle as well as a .62 cal smoothbore.

I'm looking forward to the pictures that other people have..

Very nice work! How did you attatch the trunnions to the side of the cannon?

Very nice work! How did you attatch the trunnions to the side of the cannon?

Thanks! I drilled through the cannon at the trunnion location with a 1/4" tap sized drill. Then used a centering 3/8" bit to drill the trunnion mortise. I used 3/8" bronze rod for the trunnions. Both the trunnion mortise and trunnions were drilled and tapped for 1/4" bronze threaded rod. The trunnions were then screwed into place with a drop of loctite. Nothing protrudes into the bore.
It was a fun project and fun to shoot as well.

Where do you shoot in Mass? I grew up there and in the past have belonged to Singletary in Sutton and Georgetown in Georgetown.

Upon getting back into blackpowder a couple of years ago after a 40 year absence I was shooting at Bob's public range in Salisbury, MA. I considered the $20 rang fee reasonable but the 60 mile drive each way was increasing the size of by carbon footprint beyond acceptable limits. I recently joined Maynard Rod & Gun which is halfway between home and work. It was a good decision.

This was my late Pop's handmade buckskin shirt, handmade knife and tomahawk, and handmade Hawken .54. The rifle is priceless to me, a fantastic shooter and one of my favorites by far. The hat is older than me, goes back to the mid/late 60s. The lock of hair attached to the top of the hat is my aunt's hair.

Phantom Captain,
I was in BP back in the late Sixties in Indiana and did Friendship quite a few times. Had A lodge on the primitive range with the 64th Virginia Volunteers, the bad boys with the bugle.
I might have known your dad. Knew Capt. Max Vickery President of the NMLRA at the time, personally as he was one of my Mentors, along with Art Holly. I built 19 rifles and 5 Hawken Pups.

towboat_er,

Completely LOVE your rifle. That's definitely at the top of my WANT list. What caliber is yours? I've been looking at the Uberti's and would like one in .45 colt so as to load one cartridge for pistols and rifle.

Plus a brace of USFA SAs, sheesh just gorgeous. Man, the lever guns are just so cool.

My grandfather gave this percussion cap rifle to me around 1990, it was his fathers passed down to him. I took it to a gunsmith last spring and had it gone over and repaired and shootable again. Took it to our family reunion in Aug and posed for a picture and received this one edited to look old in e-mail later.

In 1814 we took a little trip......

Calumet Plantation in 1990 with a field gun. Supposedly the cane stubble field was much the same that morning in 1814. There burned a bit of black powder there.

My buddy got me monolouging over the gun and looking down range and after a few minutes I turned to find about twenty tourist and three park rangers quietly listening in. What do you do when a tourist you never saw i nyour life says "Don't stop." and the Rangers say "please, continue"?

Believe it or not I am in person rather shy. Still there was much hand waving and pointing and directing folks to look in the drainage ditch befor the parapit. At least my buddy bought supper and refreshment that evening on Burbon street.

Assuming it is still open I believe it is one street over on Charters but you guys have to visit Cohan's an antique arms store in Nyaw Luns and also take the paddle wheeler up to calumet and visit the collection in the tower there.

And I actually have lost a bit of weight in the last 22 years.....

Yep she is loaded and capped and ready to go to the wall.
She is my Home Defense System ...after they get past the dogs...or maybe before.
She is unfired at this time, but pitted badly on the exterior, (the bores of the cylinder and bbl are perfect),from improper storage. but never mind she will be a shooter
She is a 3 digit S/N , 4 if you count the F as in FXXX. 3rd Model Cavalry. MFG in 1962.

The Early ones are very good guns, the later 70's run, eh, maybe not so much but all are better than Italian clones now. Try to find 3 or 4 digit s/n ones and they are good. try to find one that isn't beat up, because some of them get loose arbors, that can be fixed by a good gunsmith, but an early unfired one is golden.
