A 100% original, complete Hotchkiss 1883 5 barrel Revolving 37mm Gun on it’s field carriage. It uses the short brass cases with 1 pound projectiles. The gun was purchased by the Spanish government and saw field use. All functions of the gun are in working order. Brake system in place. No missing parts. This piece was a war trophy brought back from Havana, Cuba in 1898 by the US Army. We have fired this gun on several occasions. More details, photos and documentation available. A perfect Spanish American War, 5th Army Corps trophy. We can arrange crating and shipping with Old Dominion. Buyer to pay all costs. Pleases feel free to call me. Reasonable offers will be considered.

Just as rare as the Maxim gun is this 3.6 inch Mortar made at Watervliet Arsenal in 1899. It has a 3.6 inch caliber bore and is commonly known as a “bag gun”. I have located 24 of the 76 mortars that were made and of these there are only 10 in private hands. This gun received a new rifled liner in 2013 by Matt Switlik. I am looking to buy additional M1890 or M1895 mortars and accessories.

This is an original W.S Hawker RTM Cannon. I purchased it through a “reputable” auction house in 2012 and while it had been described as being in great condition, the trail sides were fractured and held together by a bad job of JB Weld. The wheel spokes were also badly broken as was the hammer. The unscrupulous consignor must have felt he really scored by dumping it on some unsuspecting collector (me). Not a problem to DeWayne Lockler, master machinist and metalurgist, who went to work on it and restored it to the beauty that it is now. Dewayne’s restoration process is documented on; http://www.myhostedpics.com/gallery.php?u=Dewayne&g=Remember-the-Maine
It weighs in at 12 pounds 11 ounces and is 13 inches in total length. It fires a 10 gauge blank shotgun shell. It was not made to fire a projectile. Beautiful piece.
Note; DeWayne will be producing complete reproduction RTM cannons in the future as well as individual parts for cannons that are in need of them; ie hammer springs, trails etc.
A variation of the cast iron Remember the Maine cannons made circa 1900. All original including the paint, it weighs 10 pounds 11 ounces and is 12 inches in overall length. Note how the RTM is cast in the one piece trail system.
A Kenton made toy cannon from around 1900. Admiral Dewey cast into the sides, it weighs 5 pounds, 8 ounces and is 12 inches in total length.
Manufactured by American Ordnance Co, Bridgeport, Conn., in late 1898 or early 1899. Serial number 135. With the exception of the post sight the gun is 100% original with most trail and mechanical components stamped with American Ordnance production stock numbers.
We recently restored an early 1893 dated Watervliet 3.6 inch mortar on it’s original M1890 carriage and added it to our collection. Pitted barrel bore and bolt but in working condition and shows great. The muzzle is marked; 1893, No.17, inspected by S.E.D., Captain Sydney E. Stuart. I have located only 23 f the 78 that were made, and of that number only 10 are in private hands and potentially available for sale. This gun is for sale at this time. I am always looking to acquire additional M1890 Mortars.
