I clicked on it and the photo enlarged so I could see it better looks like an 1828 conversion

1831 (I think) dated 1835. Probably converted in the 1850's. The barrel isn't shootable but it's still cool to own something that old, that could have conceivably been fired outside of Mexico City.


It'll be nice to show the change between the 1795 and the 1861 when Niederlander and I do the firearms display

Santa got lost on the way to my house.  I have hopes for a Ruger Wrangler in the near future.

Sometimes she has a short memory.

Hopefully, it'll be that way with the Leupold MK4 that came home a couple of weeks ago. For some reason she seemed more upset about it than about the howitzer.  ::) ???


This thred is making me anxious to do the firearms display at Ft. Hartsuff again soon, as we'll have a few cool new additions to the timeline.
