Operation Golden Gun — 5 Comments

  1. Cool.It would be awesome to have details on the gun such as maker where made and when it was made foundry and so on type of material and the weight of shot it was designed for and the max charge of powder

  2. Commenting on the last photo caption: The numbers near the vent of the gun are the weight, NOT the date. 2.2.14 stands for 2 cwt (hundred weight). 2 quarters. 14 pounds. = (2x112lbs) + (2×28 lbs) + 14 Ibs = 294 lbs

    • Thanks Lennox on correcting me on the numbers on the vent. Do you have any idea how old this piece is. It is one of a pair, both kept in good condition and used in ceremonial occasions .
