Where is that? I'm curious..

And any idea exactly what type it is?

Hmm, this should probably be on the artillery forum...

I found it in the National Archives. Don't remember if it says where it was at. I'm mostly impressed with the truck! That gun is heavy!

That was the quick answer.... I believe the pic above is from Fort Funston due to the date and that would make it Battery Davis

A couple of quick pics, these tubes weight 300,000 to 385,000 lbs depending on if its a Navy tube or Army, both were used by the army in coastal defenses. There were mounted in emplacements like these...

I couldn't find a picture of the rifling cutter, but here's some pictures from "The Watervliet Arsenal", that shows the lathes that they used...
