18th Century Italian Blunderbuss with Pirate-head grip, grey finish. #FD1104G.
Italian Percussion Blunderbuss, grey
- This handsome, non-firing replica percussion pistol features a wood stock, engraved pewter grey barrel and unique pirate's head buttplate. #FD1104G.
HISTORY: The blunderbuss pistol was popular with pirates and merchant seamen alike, because its wide barrel was easier to load on the swaying deck of a ship, and the ability to fire several balls in one shot made it a formidable weapon in close-quarter shipboard fighting.
