Historical notation says that, although of conventional design of the times, the 1841 6 PDR designed by the US Army Ordnance Department, offered the upgrade from previous iron barrels by presenting an all brass, smooth bore barrel. This barrel was utilized during the Mexican-American War (1845-1848) and continued being produced by both the North and South during the Civil War (1861-1865).
