K-4   4 Bore Blunderbuss

This 4 bore Blunderbusss can be pretty intimidating when you’re looking down the end of one.

Especially when the end is TWO inches in diameter and the bore is more than one inch too!

These big bore shoulder guns were popular for self-defense or as coach guns. They were great as military guns used for boarding ships or for crowd control. They were loud and obnoxious and shot a lot of flame, so they were perfect for signaling other ships too.

The large flared muzzle made them very quick and easy to load, but had no effect on shot pattern other than being short and lethal. With a sling swivel, they could be shoulder slung under a cloak or slung across the back while riding horseback, canoeing or trekking. They make a great camp gun too, for those uninvited dinner guests.
