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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Looks really cool. Can't seem to find any fuse locally. Have not fired it yet, but; Well made, shiny and impressive looking.

    Wow,

    I was looking for a cool toy to sit on my desk at work and this has got to be the coolest! I was not expecting such a nice piece of art/artillery as this little fellow. I give it two thumbs up.

    PS~ my co-workers now approach my desk with caution.

    I didn't think I'd have this much fun,with the small cannon. Think I will get all four now. Money well spent.

    First I've been impressed by the price of this cute little piece of engineering. After receiving it, I've been impressed by the quality. Thanks a lot, I'll have lots of fun!

    I wanted to get my husband a 50th birthday present that he would really enjoy. I had no idea how much he would love it. And my father, and my brothers, and my nephews, and the neighbor down the street! He shot small pieces of wooden dowels when he lost his projectiles. I definitely got my money's worth. This is a well made product.
