Description:Unique opportunity to own the only known original barbette carriage that at one time had a 6.4" tube on it. This is the bottom section with wheels as outlined in red on the photo of another one and as shown with the cannon model removed from a scale model. I do not have better pictures of this one now, but it is in storage in Georgia where it can be retrieved. If you do not want to do the work yourself, an extremely skilled craftsman is ready to restore it. I do not have the funds or space at present. The parts are fabulous to hold.

It is about 14' long. This is one of the coolest pieces we have ever had the priviledge of offering.
