Mini Cannon Firing and Destroying Targets (Video)

This miniature cannon is made entirely of brass. It fires tiny steel balls (3.2mm/0.126inch) with great power and accuracy and destroys targets with ease. The cannon was built and works exactly like the antique cannons of Napoleon’s time or the mortars used in the American Civil War. The cannon and the gunpowder are homemade and the projectiles are tiny steel balls (3.2mm/0.126inch).

This is the video channel of the person who invented this tiny cannon.

    This reminds me of the artillery piece in my boyhood collection of ‘Army toys’. It had a little trigger, and you could load it with a match head and a lead shot (as used in fishing).

    Don’t know whether this was an accidental discovery or a design feature, though. But, we had fun with it.

      Hi travelrat,
      Yes I have seen small army toys around, I wonder if the manufactures knew that you could actually fire it? You may have discovered something that even they didn’t know!

    That’s awsome, you wouldn’t expect something so small could actually work.

    Hi Ian,
    It’s amazing the talent some people have, you would have to have very steady hands to build something so small.
