THE PARROTT RIFLE designed by Robert Parker Parrott in 1860 went on to become the most popular field gun, used by both sides during the American Civil War. Today there are only a few hundred examples left scattered around the US, most of which are unavailable and unpractical for Civil War Enthusiasts and Re-enactors. They are either too big, too heavy, or simply not for sale. Our high-quality authentic life-size 10lb Parrott Rifle replica cannon barrel solves this problem. High quality and authentic finish. The one piece cannon barrel is made by pouring high quality virgin black powder polyethylene (plastic) into a fine detailed cast aluminium mould with a sandblasted finish then placed in a computer controlled oven and baked at high temperatures until molten. The mould is rotated through multiple axes so the molten polyethylene evenly distributes and coats the whole interior until it builds to a thick wall. The computer programming then switches into cooling mode and the cannon barrel is hardened and precisely formed. Metric measurements are in millimetres (mm). Imperial measurements are in inches .
