This gun is priced on request only!
This is the largest, heaviest, long gun produced by Hern Iron Works!!
Hern Full Scale guns are accurate Historical Reproductions, patterns made from war department ordinance drawings. Some liberty has been taken as to the bore diameter to match the commonly available DOM product for a quality cast in place steel liner.
These big 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. $500 – $900 is a common range for these shipping charges.
Large guns are not kept in inventory – they are cast to order. Typical production times are 10-12 weeks.
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.
