You're trying to make a smaller cannon aren't you? That being the case you should probably keep the design characteristic similar so someone viewing them can easily look at them and think "Ah yes, that's a smaller version of those cannons" whereas if they look different the viewer might need an explanation before they understand what they're looking at.
I suppose it all comes down to the design of the cannon, but in the picture above there's a lot of black use for the rest of the ship so some light grey would help distinguish the cannon.
True, but than I would have had to go downstairs to get my "Gray" bin :-D
It should be easy to distinguish, as this is critical to set and MOC design, so I will be using such color contrasting in the future.
