Here is a high quality late 19Th. century style 4 Ga. breech loading signal/salute gun. 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 or nickel steel material. The wooden base is hand rub finished mahogany.

We have one of this model design ready to ship. Made by Beaufort Naval Armorers and available in several sizes, this is "THE Signal/Salute Gun", for the 21st century.

This fine piece is fitted with a 'concentric' interrupted thread breech closure who's safety is in the fact that the double entrance modified square thread remains un-interrupted for the locking quarter turn. With this design, the full firing pin engagement is not possible until the proper and safe quarter turn of the breech block is made. The barrel/chamber area of this particular design incorporates the 'male' thread portion of the breech closure. This way, there is no need for an 'extractor' or cartridge rim recess. Simply pull the fired shell out.

I personally have been firing precisely timed signal cannon 'salutes' with no misfires for events and races etc. for forty years. This model has proven to me to be the most pleasing and enjoyable style to operate. It's breech system is so reliable and smooth with just one operational moving part necessary. The breech seal is such that there is absolutely zero 'blow by' of the powder gases, making cleaning an easy one or two minute task.

As you can see, this signal/salute gun is of absolute 'sound' quality with it's minimum of over complicated moving parts. With this, you as well will experience the continuing robust and trouble free operation.

Included, is a very nice stainless steel wire rope lanyard to assist with firing from a safe distance and a spanner wrench so as to safely lock/un-lock the breech. The spanner wrench tool is not necessary for standard loading and firing sessions. Hand operation works fine for that. This smart safety feature is mainly so the owner can secure the breech closure so no one else can easily meddle with or fire the piece without the responsible owner and spanner wrench being present. If you use this on board a boat or on a pier, we will include a nice marine marlinspike crafted lanyard (not shown) so as to secure the breech block from "Davy Jones's Locker".

The whole weight of the piece is 36 pounds and will fit inside of a 20X12X12 ID box.

As you can see in our photos, we placed a 4 Ga. shell next to a 10 Ga. all brass shell for comparison. The re-loadable shells and reducer sleeve are included with this cannon.

We have just sold our last issue of this model so please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. Thank you.
