#1

Here is a nice drawing (dated 1871) of the shell and projectiles used in the “canon de 7”

And here are the details of the fuze


#2

Great stuff.Please keep it up.


#3

Did the gun use percussion primers held in the case, or did it use friction primers like the caseless howitzer guns?


#4


This is the friction primer used for the ignition , the drawing of this primer is on fig 8,9,10


#5

Yes, I am aware of that. But I also see that the case shown has what could have been a normal percussion primer. That’s why I asked.
