4 bore blunderbuss

[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

its still a bit of a work in progress, but at the moment it is functional. I am thinking of cutting the forend shorter and bluing the metal...thoughts?


1/4 a pound of lead + 1/4 pound of powder= a half pound of recoil right? I can handle that

God forbid you have to use it in self-defense, but if you do and you miss, you can escape behind the fog bank of smoke it'll make.

Hm, understanding the hunting regulations, you can use buckshot in some counties but only a single projectile in most......


.... cal. 4 lead ball Now that definately counts as artillery. Either the ball or the shooter are going to take off ballistically.

Nice piece. I think with all the smoke it could at least have been a cap lock. I'm not sure I would be willing to wait for the thing to go off being a flint lock. Should be fun!!!

Make your own mold. Find an art major and do a wax cast mold and make one at a time just for fun.

my uncle used to have something that looked like that mounted on the front of a flat bottom skiff. It was a left over from the market hunting days on the eastern shore. I never actually saw it work. But he said on the ice the boat would slide back about 3 or 4 feet.
