I know nothing about them, but every time I see a soda can, I want to look for a hefty seamless pipe that they will fit into, fill a few with cement, and see how far they go. I remember seeing instruction booklets advertised decades ago for "beer can mortars", but never really looked into it.

Enlighten me.

Found a few links for models you can order, but not a whole lot of specific info on builds yet.

Blurr,
You and me both!
1919a4 has a section on these things... The guys there also refer nubies to another site... can't remember what it is right now.
Not only do they do the mortars... but BP cannons also. Impressive stuff.
I am looking to make/ get either a civil war type or make up one that LOOKS like a US WWII type (but in BP).
I look forward to any information HERE!
