This cannon is certainly my choice. It's beautiful!

As for the following statement:
The cannon was made with not a single professional machine tool or service. Drill press, sand paper, hand taps and a saw was about all that was required.


Not for 1 microsecond do I believe that quote.

This cannon has the perfect design and appearance of a CAD/ CAM generated product. Perhaps MacGyver could build something like this using only a pairing knife and toenail clippers but, I think this cannon (for the most part) was Machine Shopped.

That aside.....it still gets my vote!

Ask how it was done and i'll tell you. There was plenty of CAD work, but no CAM. You'll be surprised how achievable it is to make one yourself. Trust me. No lathes, no mills.

Don't forget what? I'm confused. Oh, if I mentioned the price of a complete polished cannon he probably wouldn't believe me on that either.
