 The first steel pipe cannon was identical to the 1.25" version, with the exception being that its ID is 0.5" vs 1.25". This gave it a considerably higher barrel length-to-muzzle diameter ratio, so it was considerably more accurate than the 1.25" version. Essentially, the 1.25" version is a mortar while the 0.5" version is a rifle or musket. The 0.5" was also exclusively fired horizontally, while the 1.25" was only ever fired at a rather steep angle. Well, the 1.25" was fired a few times from a carriage, but it didn't work very well. The first steel pipe cannon was identical to the 1.25" version, with the exception being that its ID is 0.5" vs 1.25".
