So long story shortened. My Mom is organizing a sale for the Silverton Senior Center. I go down to help sort piles of tools and man toys junk. I end up working for 5 hours. And after buying what I wanted. The ladies asked me if I would take the Cannon! CANNON what CANNON so they show me this: Thats a 1.8" approx Bore. the bore is 28" long/deep to give you an idea of the scale of the thing. Now thats not a very heavy wall on that thing so I assume it was never used with a lot of powder and was mostly used to make noise rather then stop a cavalry charge. My question is are there any actual knowledgeable Cannon guys on the site that might be willing to help me check the thing out before using it. If it can be cleaned up (honing the bore etc) I'll build some sort of carriage for it and shoot it even if its only a 100 grain charge and light weight projectile. If its junk I'll build a cool looking Naval type Swivel gun mount and paint it up with Hammerite and stick it in the front Yard as YARD ART.
