    German 9cm C/1873 Kanone

    I have recently gotten a new breech block manufactured for my 9cm C/73. It is based on an original and has turned out extremely well. There is still restoration work to go but progress is being made. This is the Link:

    I hope some of you find it of interest

    Looks like a really good job, I look forward to seeing some pictures of the cannon doing what it was designed to do.

    Field Guns

    Great job on the restoration there Ralph,

    Nice website also, if the guns themselves are considered the jaws of artillery, then the ammunition would be the teeth!

    Any chance of some pictures of ammunition that was used in the guns to accompany the images on your website? It would complete the description total.

    Regards Ozzi.
