French Blunderbuss

 
 



History

    From the late 1600’s forward, the Blunderbuss became the weapon of choice for close quarters combat and personal defense. The blunderbuss’ short barrel and wide mouth made loading while on horseback, riding in a carriage, or aboard a pitching ship’s deck easier to manage.

    Blunderbusses came in many forms and were used by the military and civilians alike. The French blunderbuss is distinguished by the lock’s slender cock.


Our Reproduction

    Our reproduction French Blunderbuss calls to mind the days of sail, and the romance and danger of the colonial and regency periods.

    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 33 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.
