7Pdr RML Shell

Postby AJGCannon » 07 Jan 2018 18:58

Hello,

I wish to acquire a shell for a 7 pdr RML. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone is able to help locate one (I live in the UK).

Many thanks,

Tony

This seller (muddyseas) has a range of 9pr projectiles & 7pr as well as others.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/19th-Century ... 0005.m1851

Just make sure you treat any items so they do not disintegrate as they come from a salt water environment. The treatment the seller applies is insufficient, additional soaking in a simple solution of water & caustic soda is required & allow 12 months. Change solution at regular intervals etc.

Also try IMA (International Military Antiques) for projectiles, theirs do not require treatment, not sure if they have 7pr.

Thanks for the info, particularly about treating the shell.

Muddyseas doesn't currently have a 7pdr, but says he can get one.

IMA have 7pdr RML shells, but won't ship to the UK.

Tony,

To solve the likes of your IMA problem there is a Parcel Forwarding Service in the US to which you can ‘mail’ your US purchase which will forward it to the UK / worldwide.

There is a service in the UK which performs the same service.

US: “hopshopgo” ….. between www and com

UK: “forward2me” ….. between www and com

Step 1 - Sign up to get a US / UK address.
Membership is free.

Step 2 - Order your goods.

Step 3 - Service receives your parcel

Step 4 - Service ships your parcel.
(The UK service uses DHL).

My wife, who collects English fine china, has used both over the years and has encountered no problems.
