    Not heard of them before but sure do have nice cannons and the various parks and museums seem well pleased.

    Beautiful work. However, they do say that they are decorative only and neither of the casting processes that they show includes a steel sleeve in the bore.

    My information is a few years old when I helped with the casting. The "barrel" is a steel barrel built and proofed if desired. There is then a bronze shell cast, the steel barrel is inserted and the void filled with aluminum.

    Sorry been away for a while
