Once a round has been fired in the chamber it will generally go back in the gun with less effort. At a time in my earlier days I was known to assist the loading of shells with a sledgehammer. The old persuader was pretty good at sizing out of spec brass.With these guns, Is there a way to mate brass to a gun’s chamber without dies?
yes these are all modern guns that are registered as destructive devicesSo these all take Shells...Correct.
This means their basicly a Gun?
A Black Powder version......which there is No regulation??
I'm not sure so ..Figured I'd ask here so we all know.
Looking at a nice Machineist? built 2" bore 2 wheeled unit........About a 30" long bore.
Kindy historic looking till He added some sizzor jack for elevation.
Fires with 50 primers ( or 12 ga) I forget. Some homemade tooling and a bunch of lead balls and a mold. Overall its 4' long......artistic taste on the build but looks way solid.
Priceing is difficult........Best I can see on BP units is about a $100 bucks per inch of bore seems the going rate. Anyone have a better /different idea how to price something like this?
I’ve also enjoyed this thread very enlightening. Can you describe the RVO powder grain size I’m curious if you have a picture of it. I’m also very interested in the varied price ranges models you’ve mentioned in just an approximations. Thank you, Aaron
prices vary greatly. Unrestored vs restored makes a big difference. Also a big difference between could shoot and actively shooting. Add a few rounds and some accoutrements and the price goes up. Prices are going to vary from about 13k to 40k for the guns on this list in shooting condition. Below is a pic of some super slow powderI’ve also enjoyed this thread very enlightening.

No different then owning a boat, rzr, race car, etc if it is something you are passionate about you will find a wayThis fun is far enough out there that I don't have any real feeling of expense involved. Are there middle class guys still getting into this or is this pretty much limited to the upper class these days, if one is starting from scratch?
Not really. They are a sold gun. As long as your barrel is in decent shape it will last you foreverBob, are there any other shortcomings to the US M3 37mm other than lack of economical projectile availability? I would really like to pick up a gun this size in the next couple of years, and the M3 was my first choice since I have a military jeep to drag it around.
What sort of barrel life do shooters see from these guns?
