.30 Caliber Mini Cannon
The mini cannon is a powerful .30 caliber design, which is a 5/16″ steel ball, better known as slingshot ammo that can be found in any sporting goods store such as Academy. With the new cannon being much easier to load, fire and clean it is much more impressive while keeping the size and integrity of a mini cannon.
We have found the balance between size and power and feel we need to discontinue the .177 caliber and offer the .30 caliber instead. We feel that you the customer will enjoy more ‘bang for the buck’. We also include a bigger ramrod to accommodate the bigger caliber and 3 steel balls to have as a starter or put next to your mini cannon when it’s on display.
The cannon uses black powder and any firework fuses. There are two knobs to adjust the barrel up and down, for aiming, The carriage is aluminum and the barrel is solid stainless steel.
The Mini Cannon is built and works exactly like the antique cannons of Napoleon’s time or the mortars used in the American Civil War.
