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.
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

Will fit good in my collection. Todd on 22nd Dec 2015
My husband loves his Pocket Cannon. He has lots of fun showing it off to his friends. Very well made. Lin 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
Fit and finish is fantastic. It is a real blast to fire. All my friends are knocked out when they see it fire. Would like to see the product line expand so I could start a collection. Also replacement ammo is really cheap and easy to find. GREAT JOB!!!! Randall on 12th Dec 2015
I am very pleased with the quality and function of the cannon - It performs as promised Ed on 11th Dec 2015
I received this fine little artillery piece in four days. It makes a nice little bang and looks good enough to display on my bookshelf. I bought 2 more for my buddies with 2mm fuses, they love them. Tom on 11th Dec 2015
Quality little piece and real true bang for your buck. You cannot go wrong with one of these and OH the FUN! Unknown on 10th Dec 2015
Bought several for my good buddies.... they were amazed with the fit & feel of the little mortars...... shooting them off the deck is such a hoot..... not too noisey.... just a good BANG...... I HIGHLY recommend them for any guy in your life..... Steve on 8th Dec 2015
This thing is great, lots of fun and shoots great! Matthew on 14th Nov 2015
I been working a lot. I haven't had time to play. I'm really excited to play when I get the time I will let you know Bob on 1st Oct 2015
Love the size of the cannon. It is small enough to shoot and destroy what is put in front of it. Chris on 30th Sep 2015
Great little cannon Tracey on 6th Sep 2015
It's small. I was kind of surprised how small BUT WOW! Very cool. Simple to use. Get the right FFF black powder (very fine grain). Start with small amounts and build up to the bang you want. I packed it full the first time (go big or go home) and it blew straight threw a piece of corrugated roofing steel. Have fun! Scott on 30th Aug 2015
