I have a short US Army WMV file showing US troops how to use a German 8 cm. Mortar, the last comment on the movie was " This mortar will give good service with US forces". I would suggest using a US mortar bipod and baseplate only, with a new barrel made from 4140 seamless tubing, if you have a touch hole it is a muzzle loading cannon. The ATF considers any reuse of a barrel or breach of a weapon orriginally built as a destructive device to still be a destructive device. If you build a muzzle loading cannon yourself it has never fired explosive rounds and never was designed to be used as such then you are like the CW artillery units. Regarding the ATF, I do not care what some agent has told you on the phone, or even if you have a letter, if they tell you it's ok and you still violate the law, you can be arrested. Use caution and get a copy of the regulations from your local ATF office.
