Quick description

 The Ordnance Board of 1841  drew up the design for this gun, which is one of the most common of all the artillery pieces of the Civil War. Originally a smooth bore, many were rifled to fire the James projectile, and are sometimes erroneously referred to as James Rifles. The smooth bore had certain advantages over the rifle; in the wooded terrain of the typical Civil War battlefield, range was less important than rate of fire, weight of shot, and the ability to fire canister. *Carriage not included*

CAN46 – Six Pounder, 1/2 scale, 1-3/4″ bore, 95#, 32-1/2″ long.

This cannon has become one of our most popular guns made here at Hern. The 1841 Six Pounder was utilized as a pattern on both sides of the Civil War, and that lends itself to its popularity among reenactment groups and collectors.

Cannon is boxed and packaged for UPS shipment to the US of A — Included with the price shown.

I generally keep one or more on hand as these are quite popular with the 1-3/4″ golf ball bore; sometimes we do run out of stock but will let you know if there will be a delay in fulfilling your order! {Aug.’19: 4 on hand! Your order saves your place in line. Terminology on the site requires the listing to say ‘in stock’ in order for purchases to be made, even for made to order items; sorry for the confusion.}

This barrel is a field gun, as you well know; but lends itself to a naval carriage if so desired as well! At 95 pounds for the barrel, and a similar number for the carriage you put together – these are fun to place in the living room, and to take to the gun shows and shooting range!!

 

 The Ordnance Board of 1841  drew up the design for the 1841 6 Pounder, which is one of the most common of all the artillery pieces of the Civil War. Originally a smooth bore, many were rifled to fire the James projectile, and are sometimes erroneously referred to as James Rifles. The smooth bore had certain advantages over the rifle; in the wooded terrain of the typical Civil War battlefield, range was less important than rate of fire, weight of shot, and the ability to fire canister. This gun was made by both the North and South; and was made in both cast iron and bronze, though bronze was common. Eagle Iron Works of Cincinnati, Ohio produced 161 during 1861-62, and Tredeger and most Southern foundries produced large quantities. Due to lack of standardization, some Confederate Six Pounders look more like Ordinance Rifles than the pattern of 1841 in shape.

Hern Cannon and mortar barrels, except the  8″ Siege Mortar  and  8-3/4″ Bowling Ball Mortar , are made with Steel Liner Tubes with minimum 1/4″ wall thickness. and with welded breech plugs. For bores larger than 2 1/4″, we use 1/2″ Wall Drawn-over-Mandrel (DOM) tubing.
