9" x 3 1/2"
Picked up this cast Iron bangsite cannon today. Been trying to buy one for a few years. Evertime they are sold or too much. They do still make modern ones..I think those are made of aluminum? This cannon is missing the counterweight. A little wd40 and it cleaned up pretty good. Had some corrosion from the bangsite.
When I was a kid, I couldn't afford one. Although I remember my oldest brother brought one over once. We figured out how to use a metal coffee can(easily found in those days). I could launch it 100 feet in the air and reuse it several times. My dad's Ham radio tower was 100 ft and a 75 ft, so I had a good way to measure height!
