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.
I bought two for myself and one each for a couple of buddies. Because of the snow and zero degree temps, I didn't test mine yet, but my pal Bob loaded his with a light charge of Pyrodex P with a bit of cotton wadding, and we fired it from his sheltered outside picnic table. I held a heavy piece of cardboard from the side and that was enough to stop the ball to be used again and again. This is one GREAT product ! NorthWoodsChuck on 19th Jan 2016

Out of all the gifts my husband received this year, this little stocking stuffer cannon was his FAVORITE. Really neat & well made product I must say. Rebecca on 3rd Jan 2016
My grandson and I had a ball with the Pocket Cannon on New Years Eve. The cannon is extremely well made and functions perfectly. Being a black powder shooter, I loaded the cannon with 5 grains of FFFg black powder and a muzzle loader cotton wad. The best cannon ball by far is a 31 caliber lead ball for a 31 caliber black powder pistol (.310 dia.) It fits just snugly and shoots really well. Great fun ! Unknown on 3rd Jan 2016

I bought this for my husband after he saw an add in a magazine. He loves it and it works really well. Brandy on 26th Dec 2015
Works great with or without the ball. Provided you get the wadding tight enough when you just want to make some noise without worrying about the ball hitting something. I use 6 or 8 grains of FFFFg Goex black and a 1/2" wide strip of the blue shop towels rolled and sort of screwed in and then seated with the ram rod. Fun little cannons! Leighton on 25th Dec 2015
Super fast shipping, very well made, cute and it goes BANG!
Will fit good in my collection. Todd on 22nd Dec 2015

I found the Mini Canons to be very nicely made. I bought them as gifts and can't wait to play with them. I wish I had these when I was a kid, looks like loads of fun. Most likely, I am going to buy my self one after the holidays. Steve on 20th Dec 2015
I bought four of these little cannons and they are awesome. Andrew on 18th Dec 2015
I had originally bought one for myself. These l'il cannons are really cool. I ordered a second one for a gift, and I' m having a hard time turning one loose. I'll most likely end up with one in each color.

I ordered a Black and Blue Cannon for my two step kids. I ended up ordering a Black one for myself and a Red one for a friend. These will make great Christmas gifts. I have fired mine a bunch of times and I want to fire it off all day. I dry fire it and it makes a good blast! The Kids will love it and my friend will too! Thanks Pocket Cannon

This is a must have item
Fun fun fun
Get two !!! Levi on 15th Dec 2015
I have a very good friend that served as an artillery officer in the Army and I thought of him when I saw the pocket cannon. I grew up the son of a gunsmith, and as such am very familiar with many forms of weaponry including a couple of black powder cannons.
Now that I have seen this piece, I plan to order another one for myself. Evan on 13th Dec 2015
