    Thanks, Peter.

    As a note for anybody, my neighbor owns his own 18 wheeler. Shipping can be arranged fairly easily. :)

    Mr. Siltman,
    I did post it to the facebook page, but I didn't want to risk high exposure and get any accounts deleted. You know how the Zuck-stapo can be.

    That's a great set up. Love the trailer mounts. If I hadn't bought my Ord Rifle 2 years ago I'd be all over this. Did you Post it on Authentic CW Artillery Facebook? I may have missed it. Great price for the setup.

    Mr Hornet, that’s quite an offer! I’m flattered, but I don’t play guitar. Thanks for reaching out.

    One of those interests wouldn't be music equipment would it? I have a nice 1975 Gibson Les Paul I could throw in with a little boot.....just curious. Nice Gun for sure!!

    Someone asked about trades.

    I’m open to lots of things. Classic cars are a favorite, but I’d entertain other ideas.

    Very nice! My goal is to obtain an original Mountain Howitzer in the future. This would be a close second.

    Bronze Mountain Howitzer

    Solid bronze mountain howitzer, limber, and implements based on Lutz prairie carriage plans. The carriage was built by myself in cooperation with Ben Miller (Miller Cannon Co.). Ben Miller built the limber and boxes. One of the limber box hasps busted off in the mail, and Ben Miller said he would pay shipping to fix it. The barrel was made by Robert Gillmore of Gillmore Ordnance, Ohio. It has the correct bore and chamber. Included are the the tarpaulins, display ammunition, ammunition crate, tools, implements, recruiting banner, and more. Included is the trailer apparatus (shown). Not shown is the round roller (included). The trailer could be included with negotiation.

    If you've not read up on Mountain howitzers, they were used by artillery, cavalry, and infantry units on both sides. They were used by cav. units because they were lighter and more mobile that field artillery. Infantry units used them to defend crossroads (one such case was by the famed 54th Mass. Inf.), forts, prisons, etc. These small guns arguably helped some units become famous, such as Wilder's Lightning Brigade and Morgan's Raiders.

    This cannon is about two years old and has been fired about a dozen times at four events. It's practically new. I'm selling it because I live in a remote area and struggle to get guys to help me. This is a turnkey operation for a first class group. It is light and easy for one person to move. I've loaded the carriage in and out of the trailer by myself. It comes with everything you would need, except powder and primers. $18,000. Trades considered, especially a replica Kubelwagen (I'm into VWs as well as military history)
