I have always wanted a cannon. Not one of those itty bitty ones but something bigger. So the other day I had the chance to pick one up. But it needs some work. It looks to be an old Traditions Napoleon 111 .69 caliber black powder cannon. It needs some work though. I would like to get the barrel refinished along with most of the hardware. It seems to have originally been nickel plated as some of the bottom of the barrel still has the finish on it but almost none on the sides and top. Looking for ideas on who to use, what to do to it. Could go back to nickel or have what remains removed and have it hot blued or something else. I will work on redoing the carriage while the metal work is redone. Here are some current pics of it. Give me some ideas and names of places that may do this kind of thing. Blackjack gunsmith is near me and I will be consulting him as well. Thanks! 27" overall with a 15" barrel.
