Please Note: The American Digger Magazine inadvertently sent out show advertising saying that their Chattanooga Show was this coming weekend, July 20th. That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

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.
