late 19Th. century style 10 Ga. signal/salute gun. We already sold our first prototypes of this model so please allow two weeks delivery for the model at this time.
The material used for the barrel is 17-4 PH H1150 high strength boat shaft material. All of the mounting hardware is made from standard marine grade stainless steel chain plate material.
The breech block is of the typical US military sliding block type which is secured with cam action and a minimum of necessary moving parts requirements. The breech block stays attached and does not have to be fully removed for loading and firing etc. The firing of the piece is effected by a smart pull on a cable lanyard blocking key which is attached to a pivot pin in the cascabel knob.
The barrel measures 14.5" overall length and 2 3/8" diameter at the trunnion band. The whole piece, wood base included, will fit inside of a 18"x8"x8" box.
All checks take two weeks to process. USPS MO's are the best and yield a fastest deliveries. Thank you.
