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.
