The Big-Bang® Cannon is an American toy cannon first manufactured in the early 20th-century. Numerous consumer fireworks injuries convinced a physics professor at Lehigh University (Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) to patent a "Gas Gun" in 1907, and the manufacturing of Big-Bang® Cannon started in 1912, from the Gas Cannon Company > 1916 Toy Cannon Works > 1924 The Conestoga Company.
Put a small amount of water into the cannon's chamber, add some Bangsite® and then close the chamber. Wait a few seconds for gas to form, then push down the firing pin and get a BIG-BANG! Make sure you've added the correct amount of water. Check the firing pin to make sure that it creates a spark. Blow into the Ignitor opening after every shot to clear any remaining gas for the next shot.
No gunpowder is used. No matches required. Bangsite® cannot be ignited by the hottest flame. Absolutely no recoil or kick. Concussion cannot explode Bangsite® (pulverized calcium carbide). Big-Bang® Cannons only work with Bangsite® Ammunition. The Conestoga Company assumes no responsibility for abuse or misuse of its products. Parental supervision required.
