Turned out it was a BTAF sting operation! If ya want to build a single-shot weapon that is simple and impressive, and somewhat legal! Trunion-ears and cassian for easy set-up and hide. Ummm, I call it the only safe firearm you can't shoot yourself in the foot wit. Your neighbors will call it the wrath of God with PMS.

Toolabard: When I built my golf ball mortar the one thing I found distrubing was the extreme distance with less than an ounce of powder.

I started out with a small yacht-starter, about 20",1" bore. This was bolted to a secure shooting stand weighing lbs. Using FG cannon powder we could get a pop that would roll across the valley and back, and a 3' flame! An ounce of powder and 2 tight-wads made all the safe noise you wanted. I want to make the next one larger,about a 3 footer and add reieforce bands to both muzzle and breach with 2 decorative bands in between. It would have a nice French '75 look to it right down to the carriage and cassian.
We have a yearly event up here called The Mt. Muster where a cannon shoot is a main event. About a dozen field-pieces usually show up at this Rev. War encampment. One year a guy showed up with his piece that shot bowling-balls. He painted them orange so he could find them later. Something to aspire too! Remind me to tell you about Fort Knox on the Maine coast some time.

I think you can get them either completed or as a kit, and sized for either bowling balls or regular old cannon balls. They leave the touch hole closed, but that is just a butt covering thing. I know they have a web site, I'm just too lazy to look for it. Hmm, yeah Single shot pistol Tinkered with conversion of a single-shot Chinese air gun to. Piece o'cake, since all of the components are there already.
And just this morning made a sketch of a full-auto version. Pieces of junk, but fun ideas. Speaking of Palladin Press, and the interest in this thread, I suppose there are many here among us who have an interest in making above-mentioned toys less noisy? How about one on the lines of the old Ruger Hawkeye, or would you run into patent infringement problems?
Doc this may be a stupid question but was the rifle already in 22 caliber? No, it was. Just drilled it out. The drill will of course follow the original bore. Alternatively, you can drill it out extra-large and insert a suitable tube that just happens to be. Rampant scientific creativity, that's all.

I don't want to read a post written by a blind guy, or deaf guy, or fingerless guy Gee guys, I am all for fun and freedom, BUT making a breechloading pistol is a very touchy legal thing.
Making one without rifling would be considered a 'sawed-off shotgun' and that is LOTS of trouble too.
