Field Limber and Ammunition Chest
All field carriages used the same limber, a two-wheel vehicle with a single chest over the axle and a pintle at the rear over which the lunette, an iron ring at the end of the carriage trail, could be dropped and locked. This converted the two wheel gun carriage into a four-wheel vehicle with single point connection which permitted an extremely short turning radius. WE build our limber and ammunition chest exactly to the original specifications. Only using the correct woods and irons originally specified in the original drawings. We also offer the the limber and ammo chest in aluminum for out door display. you can see some of our aluminum limbers at Mananas, Stone’s River, New Market, Fort Donelson and Petersburg battlefield.
