For sale is a scale (1/13) replica of the famous 24-pounder used on the main gun deck of the U.S.S. Constitution "Old Ironsides". The barrel is precision turned from brass bar stock and is bored and reamed to .38 caliber. The carriage is constructed of oiled American black walnut. All of the hardware is solid brass. Though the seller will not accept any liability for an accident brought on by the firing of this piece, others of this same construction have been fired using .38 caliber lead balls and black powder charges appropriate for the caliber. Truly a "high end" replica for your den, office, or the range. MADE IN AMERICA ... as it should be.
