    150 Pdr. Armstrong Rifle Mounted on the Excellent Reproduction Carriage by Paulson Brothers Ordinance Corp.


Picture is courtesy of the United States Military Academy at West point, New York. Anybody who has ever seen this gun close-up knows why we chose it as our third seacoast gun to build in our `Magnificent Seacoast Gun Series`. It is one of the most impressive seacoast guns in the United States today. It is very large and looks even larger way up there on the distinctive, high mounted, seacoast barbette carriage. This carriage is neither a front nor a center pintle carriage. It revolves around an imaginary point 5 or 6 feet in front of the chassis so it traverses to the left or right in the same manner as a front pintle carriage would. The front chassis wheels are on a small radius track and the middle one on a medium radius track and the rear wheels are on a large radius track. If you built a huge gun chamber to mount this piece on three circular tracks, you could get 360 Deg. rotation of the carriage and do things that only center pintle carriages can do, but the outer railroad track would be a whopping 35 to 45 feet in diameter which is HUGE when compared to all other seacoast gun installations except the monstrous 100 ton mounts supplied for a very few guns.
