So I have a couple of customers that shoot black powder cannons and they have my interest peaked.

I found a place selling 20mm vulcan barrels. The front half (40in) is the part I'm really interested in building it with.

Where can I get more info on this type of project? I can find lots of stuff on front stuffers.. I want a mini breech loader.

NICE,....Do you happen to know anything about them ? Like are there any blueprints, or what are they using for a gas check ?

Who sells complete breech loading units for purchase like the one at the top of BigMac 2nd picture post. A cannon that I can shoot off the M3 pod would be cool.

Great pictures! There are some very skilled and creative designers out there.
Do you have any pictures of the projectiles,rotating bands, and breech gas seals?

I am supposed to get invited to the Coalinga shoot this fall. I will get some pics at that shoot and share with the board.

I had a Super neet 20mm canon brought in here because of this thread. Full length barrel.. The cannon part was about worked out. He just needs a recoils sytem as I understand it.

Gees it made the bug worse.
