Breech-Loading Cannons

No matter whether they are based on historic models or on individual customer requirements: Our saluting cannons are impressive in design and sound.

 

All barrels are forged and drilled from solid material and furnished with a breech according to customer specifications. To meet our customer’s requirements even more, breech and barrel can be individually engraved with emblems and letterings.

 

Our breeches and barrels can be finished variously, from spray painting to QPQ treatment.

 

Our carriages are crafted either from steel or from the finest woods and equipped with corresponding wheels and fittings. If desired, even wooden wheels can be mounted with solid-rubber tyres.

 

Yet, appearance is not everything. From loading of the cartridges, over cocking up to firing, our ceremonial cannons are able to convince with their user-friendly and safe operability. Thus, they combine authenticity and functionality and create a unique backdrop to any occasion.
