Pirates were always known to carry one or more flintlock pistols or blunderbuss. This German Flintlock Pistol from the early 18th Century is one of the earlier flintlocks to replace the matchlock and wheellock models. The single shot bluderbuss pistol was loaded by pouring gunpowder into the barrel, then ramming the ball.The fluted barrel of the blunderbuss would spread the shot so that you can hit multiple targets at once.This non firing gun features a wood stock, engraved lock, barrel and trigger guard. This is a great colonial or pirate themed decoration or perfect for the 18th Century re-enactor.
