AR221094L: Replica 18th Century English Blunderbuss, Brass
Denix
 
This reproduction of a flintlock blunderbuss is made of metal and wood with a simulated mechanism of loading and firing. This blunderbuss is reproduced with museum-quality detail and is a great choice for any discerning collector.

Blunderbusses were typically very short, with a barrel less than 24" long, compared to the musket's barrel length measuring more than 35". The firing mechanism is composed of a flint stone attached to a hammer which when the trigger is pulled, strikes a spark and ignites the gunpowder.

All blunderbusses required manual reloading of their ammunition, which was inserted through the mouth of the barrel after each shot. Usually, the weapon was loaded with a single bullet of lead, although also could be used with several bullets of smaller size (pellets).

Used by the pirates in the eighteenth century, the blunderbuss was very imprecise but was more useful in the approaches during the naval battles, where the combat was at a short distance. In addition, these weapons were used for a single shot, since their reload method was very slow and there was no time available to recharge it. Therefore the fighters after firing were forced to draw their sabers or swords or to use the firearm as a bludgeon.

This replica is the closest you can get without the real thing!
This replica is to be used as a decorative piece in my office. I have decorated my office with a pirate theme. I have several replica weapons (some purchased and some made myself). I wanted a blunderbuss because it was THE weapon of choice for pirates. I had priced real ones that were thousands of dollars as well as true functioning replicas that were around $500. When I saw this replica, I did several price and quality comparisons before purchasing it. I could not be happier with this item. It looks great and isn't one of those cheap-looking replicas that are so prevalent. With the money I saved, I will be able to purchase some navigation memorabilia to complete my office. Thanks, Knife Center!!!
