First off this is NOT a for sale thread. I also hope it is not inappropriate to Post this. If so it can be deleted.
I do not even know if I have ever shown this here. I built it about three to 4 years ago. It is a 1.3 inch rifled Bore, (actually a 30mm rifled section). It is a Breech Loader as you can see. Breech is sealed with a rubber obturator setup. I have a Mold for making lead Projectiles. I fire it with either fuse or Friction Primers and Lanyard. Usually fuse as Primers are somewhat costly as you know.
It is made off a very obsolete Confederate Barrel. I have seen two versions of these. One the Breech lifts upward for loading. The other like mine, swings open Horizontal. It needs some refinements I have just never got to yet. Like better Lynch Pin set up for the axles, and better Capsqaures would be nice. This is cosmetic stuff, none of it creates anything unsafe. It is not Historically correct in every way for sure. Just a neat Gun, built by a amateur. I also wanted to make s sighting system I never got to yet.
I am actually working on a little better elevation mechanism right now. I am going to add a hand wheel on the underside below the trail.
Anyway what I am wanting is any guesses as to a Ball Park asking price? I kinda want to build a new Cannon, so may have to sell to help finance the new one.
I am not so much looking for a binding appraisal, just would like some Ball Park thoughts.
It is one of the earlier attempts I did, so keep that in mind.. I do not even believe the barrel was ever in a Carriage originally. Probably was a swivel Barrel maybe. The original I copied was a 1.5 Bore. So this barrel is Scaled down slightly.
I can post more pics if necessary too. I have not even made a firm decision to sell or not yet. But be Ohnest, if it is a worthless Junker not worth offering for sale. That is fine also,LOL I can take any criticism one can throw out
