Its a scale model of a napoleon III which didnt have any reinforcement rings along the barrel. I did however add the ring around the breech for extra strength and an extra 3mm high ring at the trunnions. The barrel wall is more that one caliber along the full length of the barrel. :wink: I reckon if I load it beyond the trunnions, i'm only wasting powder.... :rotf: :rotf:Mule Brain said:One question, why the lack of reinforcement rings along the barrel?
Thats where my own labour comes in. I will be using african teak and am in the process of starting with it soon. I am just waiting for my 6 pndr light field cannon blueprint from dixie gunworks I ordered 3 weeks ago. I will however keep you guys in the loop as I progress with it. :hatsoff:Where's the carriage?
