    M1857 12 pound Napoleon barrel needed

    My re-enacting organization needs to replace a Model 1857 bronze 12 pound Napoleon barrel. Does anyone know where one is available? We already own the carriage, tow trailer and accessories.

    Steen Cannons, and Historical Ordnance Works (Tom Bailey) both offer replicas, and both estimates from them are $30,000. Hern Iron Works and Southbend Replicas Inc. offer steel replicas for less money, but we’d rather have bronze like the Battery B, 4th US Artillery used. Paulson Brothers don’t appear to be offering barrels anymore.

    His website is seedartillery.com I believe.
    His work is museum quality with good prices.
