The mini cannon is a powerful .30 caliber design, which is a 5/16" steel ball, better known as slingshot ammo that can be found in any sporting goods store such as Academy. With the new cannon being much easier to load, fire and clean it is much more impressive while keeping the size and integrity of a mini cannon. We have found the balance between size and power and feel we need to discontinue the .177 caliber and offer the .30 caliber instead. We feel that you the customer will enjoy more 'bang for the buck'. We also include a bigger ramrod to accommodate the bigger caliber and 3 steel balls to have as a starter or put next to your mini cannon when it's on display.
The cannon uses black powder and any firework fuses. There are two knobs to adjust the barrel up and down, for aiming, The carriage is aluminum and the barrel is solid stainless steel. The Mini Cannon is built and works exactly like the antique cannons of Napoleon's time or the mortars used in the American Civil War.
IT IS VERY WELL MADE, AND FUN TO SHOOT. I WISH THERE HAD BEEN MORE EXACT LOADING INSTRUCTIONS WITH IT. AMAZON HAS PLENTY OF "SLING SHOT" AMMO TO CHOOSE FROM. I CAN'T WAIT FOR MY AMMO TO ARRIVE SO I CAN REALLY MAKE SOME NOISE. BEST LITTLE CANNON I'VE SEEN. CARROLL on 21st Oct 2014
This is by far the most fun i have had with 40 dolars. I recomend everyone to buy at least one. Raymundo on 21st Aug 2014
The cannon is a lot smaller than I imagined but it packs a powerful punch. Very fun novelty item and funny to bring out at parties as well! Also very fast shipping and great quality! Steve on 11th Jul 2014
I bought one for my husband after seeing one on outrageous acts of science and just had to look it up and after seeing the videos that were posted I had to order one and see for myself. Needless to say we were definitely not disappointed one bit!! We have had endless amounts of fun and laughter because of a little cannon. And will be ordering more. I definitely recommend getting one for all who are big kids. These things are loads of fun and well worth the money!!!!
It is amazing what these little cannons can really do..you have to see for yourself! You will not regret it!! alina on 26th Jun 2014
I'd seen a couple of vids of these and thought, why not?
All I can say is I'm totally blown away. The build quality is great, the shipping (even over here to the UK) is minimal, and these things *REALLY* pack a punch!
My first test fire was against an old terracotta pot, I was expecting it to chip it, no idea how badly though, it actually punched a perfect hole through the front side, and shattered the back, accompanied with a bang that would be better suited to a musket rather than something this small.
Could things be improved? Not really, more of refinements than improvements, for example it would be nice if the base had a threaded hole for attaching to a spike or a magnet so the cannon doesn't fly off with the recoil, another addition would be either better nobs or an alan-key provided for the existing ones (a couple of times it has dropped when not expected), but these really are minor things.
My recommendation, go get one now! Mex on 12th Jun 2014
Just got 3 of the 4 cannons I want. Got the silver, red, and black. All are excellent quality and work great. I fired off a shot from each. All are loud and show some great power. Not the most accurate thing in the world but that's not the point of these cannons. The point is they are fun. I'd have spent the day blasting away with them but am running out of fuses. But I have 130 feet of fuse on the way. A bit more ammo and black powder and I'm ready to fight a miniature civil war and have fun doing it. 4th of July will never be the same again.

Cannon is awesome.haven't shot it yet.displayed on shelf.everyone loves it. Angel on 9th Jun 2014
I recently took mine on vacation to Wisconsin. My family liked it so much that I ended up gifting my cannon to somebody, then ordering 3 more for me. I'm going to collect all 4 of them. When using the recommended GGGf powder it works great. Pack everything down as tight as possible is key to getting a good strong bang. I tried Pyrodex but it just doesn't work quite the same as good old FFFg Triple seven. Clean up with rubbing alcohol and a few q-tip cotton swabs. John on 7th Jun 2014

I received my cannon although it took 14 days delivery to singapore, i am so happy because i think i am the only one in my country have pocket cannon , the product , i must say is superb and first class ,thanks Unknown on 24th Feb 2014
I love the pocket cannon, so much fun to deal With :) frederik on 22nd Feb 2014
I received this cannon after about a week and it came neatly packaged and with everything it was supposed to.
I got the powder, extra ammo, and a few fuses and tried it out. It took few tries to get it just right. Once I did though, it worked flawlessly.
My only suggestions would be:
1) to add a suggested amount of powder to get the optimal load.
2)It should be noted that a good seal on the fuse hole is imperative so the energy isn't lost though it.
otherwise, I love it! Shaun on 31st Jan 2014
I bought my older brother the silver cannon for christmas and he loved it. It was something unique that any guy would love to tinker with so he had tons of fun when he opened it up. My only caution with using the cannon is that it is almost certain you will loose the small silver balls if you aren't very careful and that it is somewhat difficult to create fuses for if there isn't anywhere nearby to purchase them from. The first batch of fuses I tried to produce simply weren't able to keep lit. All in all this is just a great toy to give a man who loves to tinker. Sam on 29th Dec 2013
I have not yet used it with bullets.
I loaded it with some black powder and some bread and it was a loud bang.
Im gona have much fun with this cannon.
I need more bullets but I dont know were I can buy them here in Sweden. Johan on 2nd Dec 2013
Neat item to have and mess around with, only wish the barrel was a little bit bigger to allow more powder. Overall and awesome product and fun to shoot. Was a hit with all of my reenacting friends. Scott on 27th Oct 2013
This is a quality cannon and fun to shoot.With practice you can be very accurate with your shots. gary on 22nd Oct 2013
Looks really cool. Can't seem to find any fuse locally. Have not fired it yet, but; Well made, shiny and impressive looking. keith on 21st Oct 2013
Fun to shoot , just a little touchy to find the right load. mike on 20th Sep 2013
