Pictures from cannon in production. Stay tuned for updated photos!!

Previously available from Hern, castings were made from a pattern on loan to the company. After being called back to the owner, we were out of production for a few years. Once again, a wonderful customer was able to provide a great pattern with his woodworking skills in exchange for the first casting cast!

Today’s production is Cast Iron, cast around a 1/4″ wall DOM tubing, w/ flat breach plug. Weighing in at 195#, 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. $250- $400 is a common range for these shipping charges.

Large guns are not kept in inventory – they are cast to order. Typical production times are 6-8 weeks.

U.S. Carronade – Full Scale

0 out of 5

With its distinctive eye at the cascable, the  U.S. Carronade  was considered the logical sea cannon. It was easily secured for controlled recoil. The loop also made rapid dock-to-ship transfer of the weapon safer and quicker. The stout U.S. Carronade is physically shorter than many of the cannons of its time. This design reflects tight shipboard quarters and allowed fast relocating in the space provided. Trunnions are below center. *Carriage not included*


English Swivel Gun

 The English swivel cannon  should not be confused with pivot guns, which were far larger weapons mounted on a horizontal pivot, or screw guns, which are a mountain gun with a segmented barrel. *Carriage not included*


Revolutionary Howitzer – Full Scale

The  Revolutionary Howitzer  as cast by Hern Iron Works has a 3″ diameter straight full length smooth bore. The liner is 1/2″ wall DOM steel, with a concave breech plug press fitted & welded. One of my favorite pre-civil war pieces we make! *Carriage not included*
