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 in 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 military blunderbuss was produced for the British and would have seen service with armies, navies, and privateers the world over.
Our reproduction Military Blunderbuss calls to mind the days of sail, and the romance and danger of a time when Englandís British redcoats ruled both land and sea.
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. At just 31 inches in overall length, this scattergun can be wielded with ease on deck and handily managed in the rigging or in the saddle.
As with all of our weapons, it comes with a limited warranty. The frizzen has been adequately hardened and comes with a lifetime re-hardening guarantee.
