Up for auction today is a cast iron 12 gauge blank firing boat cannon, see the photos. This cannon was never intended to fire anything but 12 gauge black powder blanks. It is made of cast iron not stromg enough for shot rounds. This was made to be mounted on the bow of a boat and it uses a string lanyard for firing. It cocks by pulling the ring back until the sear ingages. Pulling up on the trigger fire it as can be seen its a beach loader the barrel swings to the side for loading the pin the holds it in is the wrong one but it works. as can be seen it has some rust in the action and barrel. Its embossed 12 Cal. so I assume its of foreign manufacture. The cannon is not very big it measures about 6 1/4 inches long and weighs 2 1/2 lbs. It sells with no reserve. No foreign bids.
