Parrott Rifle, 10-Pounder, US Civil War Cannon Model

PARROTT RIFLE, 10-POUNDER, MODEL 1861

Guns of History by Model Shipways • Precision Cast Metal Parts

1:16 SCALE US CIVIL WAR CANNON

BRIEF HISTORY
Cast iron artillery was very accurate, but it was brittle and prone to fracture. Captain Robert P. Parrott, superintendent of the West Point Foundry, created a stronger piece by reinforcing the cast iron with a band of wrought iron around the breech. The iron band was welded into one piece and forced onto the breach while it was red hot. Cold water was then poured down the muzzle, allowing the band to shrink and attach uniformly.

Captain Parrott made the first of these rifles that carry his name in 1860 and patented it in 1861. The piece was extremely versatile, firing both fused and point impacting explosive rounds, along with shot (solid ball) and grape (large charge of small balls). With an effective range of over 2,000 yards, the Parrott Rifle became one of the favorite pieces of both the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War.
