History From the late 1600ís forward, the Blunderbuss became the weapon of choice for close quarters combat and personal defense. The blunderbussí short barrel and wide mouth made loading while on horseback, riding on a carriage, or aboard a pitching shipís deck easier to manage. Blunderbusses came in many forms and were used by the military and civilians alike. The doglock blunderbuss, with its distinctive catch, was one of the earlier forms of a weapon that would have seen service with armies, navies, privateers, and civilians the world over. Today the unique appearance of the blunderbuss is associated with Pirates and Buccaneers.

Our Reproduction Our reproduction 17th century Blunderbuss calls to mind the days of sail, and the romance and danger of a time when pirates roamed the seas. It features a 16 inch, .75 caliber, brass barrel with flared muzzle. The barrel is octagon-to-round in form and is accented by dual bands and an engraved steel tang.
