Blasphemy. Get a real one.  I'm kidding. :)

Iíve seen a few but rarely. They are solid cast and not pieced together from parts with a powder chamber like a real one.  Since they are solid cast they are heavy too.
Best,
Carl

I bought several repros some years ago. They are hollow but have no bottom plate.  They look shiny new, cast from lead. You should be able to age it in reverse electrolysis or use some muriatic acid on them and let it whiten up.  Others may have better suggestions. If that's what you are looking for, I'll send one to Carl, who might have it by the Marietta show.

finding a good one. well about 50 years ago  a friend had a perfect fuse, none dug,  tried to take him out of it but no luck. told him would trade my wife , but that did not work either.   i do have have a perfect none dug 12 pdr ball with no fuse. so a repro would look good in it.   yes you can email me: cwo4gatz@optonline.net   also you can call 631 886 1104  joe gatz
