Although fireworks and special effects are our primary focus, we also offer the most reliable friction primers in the business, Schuetzen, and Swiss black powder, musket and pistol caps, and the vent tools you need to keep your cannon firing.
Our friction primers are the best and most historcally correct way to fire Civil War through Spanish-American War period artillery. Our friction primers are carefully manufactered by hand using original formulas from the 1863 Ordnance manual. Primers are guaranteed against misfires. If you ever have one fail return it for a free replacement. (Primers are not guranteed against issues caused by poorly maintained or incorrectly sized vents or user error.)
Primers are 3/16" diameter and 1 3/4" long. For best fit and function, your cannon's vent should be about .200" diameter (#7 drill). Keep vents clean for best performance.
Primers are $1.00 each.
Minimum order 25 pieces except when ordered with other products or picked up in person. Sorry, no exceptions. Please always allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
