CAN36 – Napoleon, 1/2 scale, 2-1/4″ bore, 150#, 37″ long.

This barrel was one of the first that we cast here at Hern when we started producing cannon in the 70’s.  We had one on the front porch growing up that we may or may not have fired off on the Fourth and other fun times!

These mid sized guns ship via truck, and freight charges are driven by current prices of fuel & distance to destination.  A commercial address with a forklift will save you money.  Upon order & payment for your barrel, you will be contacted by our office to confirm shipping details and provided with a specific quote.  You can pay for shipping over the phone at that time, or mail in your payment.  $220- $300 is a common range for these shipping charges.

The Napoleon 1/2 scale is more often than not on hand in inventory.  Please call direct to confirm.  If stock is out, they are cast to order; typical production times are 6-8 weeks.   { Aug.’19 – One in Inventory! }

 

 The 1857 Napoleon Cannon  was commissioned by Louis Napoleon of France to replace several cannons in similar sizes. In 1857 Ames Manufacturing Company produced the first of several variations of this design. Some were made with handles, and muzzels were made both with and without a swell. The cannon shown here is the Union Second Type, the most popular of the variations. Napoleons were nearly all smooth bores. They were favorites on both sides. Imagine the effect of a battery of Napoleons firing canister at one quarter mile range! The Tredegar Foundry at Richmond produced iron Napoleons with banded breeches that resemble Parrot Rifles. According to the Confederate Ordinance Chief, General, Gorgas, these “grave entire satisfaction.” Bronze was the preferred material, however, iron being used due to war time necessity.
