What grade stainless is it? And is it welded together or bolted? And did you do any lathe work for this?

It being made of steel, you should convert to a hybrid and fire some horrifyingly damaging shots. With a cannon as beautiful as this, I'm assuming it took a lot of time to construct. Why not go for pure, raw power?

(if you do, post damage pics. The guys here tend to love destructed things.)

Actually it is a hybrid. 12 lbs. ox and 12lbs propane. Fires every time without purging the chamber. The silly thing is loud also. I have to run now. I will try to post the pictures in the album tomorrow. Thanks for all the nice comments.
