Finished up the steel wheel covers and some extras……me thinks it is finished…..what a roller coaster ride this project has been!

I plan on test firing it over Memorial Day Holiday - should be able to take some video - I'll post the test firing (if all goes well.....)


As it sits awaiting moving it out of the basement and getting it ready for a test run

Nicely adapted to the mg-42 tripod. Looks original.

I'd say it turned out great! I can't wait to see the full size model you build next!
By the way those "Metal Wheel Wrappings" are actually called "Tires".

That is awesome!

I looked at your album picures - that is a nice project!

Good work!

I wish I had a lathe like that.

So, is the barrel made of multiple pieces? I saw the nose cap.

It started out as one piece, but reaming required re-chucking it, and my steady rest would no longer accept the diameter after shaping it (cutting off the end for shaping ), so I re-cut the nose piece with a stepped slip fit connection......one of the many mental errors you go through in the process I guess.

Yeah it keeps folks guessing at what's coming at them

I use the same ammo cans for 30-06 and .308/7.62 caliber conversions.......

Thanks from CharlieLima

The "inaccuracy" of smooth bore cannon is much exaggerated. With good wadding, consistent shot and a straight bore, a 6 pounder should be able to repeatedly hit a 4 x 6 foot target at 600 yards, once the gunner gets the trajectory.

I always wanted a 12lb mountain howitzer.
I don't have 3 mules any more to pack it but it would break down nicely to fit in the back of a half ton pick up truck.

Thanks from Tommo and Dougboffl

Thanks. It is original and designed by me quite a few years ago. I was actually manufacturing these for other 1919 shooters for a number of years. This one was my second build - first one still hangs in my basement shop....

I considered getting a jeep and mounting one, but I couldn't decide which one to use for mounting.....what I REALLY want is a tracked vehicle!
