We have owned this cannon for a very long time. It has been in a lot of parades.It is very manageable and easy to move about. We would fire it in parades and other celebratory activities using about 1/4 cup of black powder and lots of newspaper steops... The newspaper makes the blast look a lot more spectacular. My 97 year old father passed away. He could have told you a lot more about this cannon. I believe the wheels are original World War 1 artillery Wheels... Many similar guns use Wagon Wheels which have a larger Hub but these wheels are the tighter military style wheels and look much much better. I believe the cannon Barrel was machined from a World War 1 battleship gun... My dad would often say something about the original gun being cut into thirds and this cannon Barrel is the smaller front end section of that gun. A lot of the metal work on the chassis of the Canon are original but I couldn't tell you which ones. This cannon will definitely make someone very very happy.
