Big-Bang® Cannons produce a realistic FLASH and BANG. A mixture of gas (Bangsite® and water), fresh air and a spark produce the BANG. Every time before reloading, remove the Ignitor and blow into the Ignitor-opening so as to replace the burned gas from the last shot with fresh air for the next shot. Wash the used Bangsite® (lime sediment) out of the water chamber after firing session.

This unique American made product has made backyard celebrations a blast for generations of customers since its patented invention in the Lehigh University Department of Physics. In response to numerous consumer fireworks injuries, we started manufacturing Big-Bang® Cannons in 1912 as Gas Cannon Company. "BIG-BANG" and "BANGSITE" are registered trademarks.


Restore an Older Model

The appeal of a Big-Bang® Cannon is simple - a scale-model toy cannon that makes a loud bang and flash, but has no recoil or kick. They've been a favorite from generation to generation. They're a safe alternative to consumer fireworks...a source of fun at all outdoor gatherings...a display piece and collector's item. Great for military games, celebrating and saluting. Parents approve.
