    Congrats on the latest pieces of the cannon, that sucker is in a lot of pieces.

    What does the trunnion part weigh?

    But I guess a post up isn't worthy-if it not picture perfect.

    Beats the hell out of the countless please click subscribers that post up nothing except a bloody look at me videos.

    No ****! Trunnions .For some reason I thought like a swivel arm.Maybe due to the small bore.It weighs 42.6 lbs

    42lbs no wonder you are tired.
    Lugging that any distance would wear on the body.
    Nice save

    Agree, I just wanted to see some better pics of this amazing find. The original pics didn't do it justice, the new pics are awesome!

    I don't think thats a swivel gun. Looks more like a Carronade or like this 2 pounder https://www.ima-usa.com/collections/...naval-carriage
