Big-Bang Model 16F

The Big Bang model 16F is certainly the king of the carbide cannons. It is big. It is heavy. It is iron. It is loud! If I could only have one Big Bang, it would be a 16. Here is my first 16F, named Lord Peter. It is the cannon that started my collection in ernest.

Here are the current brass 16F's available from Conestoga. Red brass on the left and yellow on the right.

Here is a 16F that has rather ornate wheels by comparison. I have never seen another like it.

Here are two 16F tubes that got refitted to garrison type carriages. Without a doubt, this was because battle damage had destroyed the field carriages!
