How to Use Your Cannon

AMERICAN CANNONS produces and markets black powder cannons. You can use these cannons primary for display & salute firing purposes.  Our newest line of cannons are designed and built to be used in competition shootings. They can also be used on ranges involved in the Upcoming Sport of Golf Ball Launching.  These cannons feature stainless steel removable screw-in barrels in 12″, 15″ or 18″ barrel lengths that are designed to fit into one receiver.  Thus, allowing different shots at different distances without having to purchase another complete cannon. Simply unscrew the barrel and choose your desired size.

American cannons are CNC machined from 4″ diameter solid T1080 High Carbon Steel. They require little maintenance other than normal cleaning after using. Please keep a high quality oil film coating on the metal. Always remember it is best to store the cannon with the barrel fully screwed into the receiver. Don’t forget to use anti-seize on the threads for easier disassembly too.
