Default A hand cannon barrel

Just obtained this barrel. It is a bit smaller than the one I reported on earlier here (and Fernando's example discussed here http://www.vikingsword.com/vb/showth...ght=hand+canon).

The base is somewhat misshapen so it looks wider in the image. I do not think that this is a noisemaker.

142mm Long
46mm Diameter
23mm Bore

Again, from Portugal.
ETA. It also appears to have had the touchhole reenforced. Black powder resulted in significant erosion in these things.

I am thinking a mount like an earlier one I made (stolen from Fernando)

I am ready to start. Any thoughts on the design I might employ?
