KB-14 Blunderbuss

blunderbuss

These awesome little guns can be pretty intimidating when you’re looking down the end of one. They were short barreled large bore shoulder guns popular for close self defense. They were popular with the military especially aboard ships for crowded deck fighting or crew control. Sentries used them for signaling and crowd control. The flared muzzle aided greatly in loading but had no effect on shot pattern other than being short and lethal.

These little guns could be shoulder slung under a cloak or slung across the back while trekking, riding horseback or canoeing.                   

Blunderbuss Walnut Steel

The Sitting Fox Blunderbuss uses a stock hand shaped in grade A Maple or walnut mated to an 11 gauge (75 cal) octagon to round flared 14” barrel flared to 1¼” at the muzzle. The butt is shaped and profile cut to the fowler style butt plate. An English style Fowler trigger guard and thimble set is used in cast brass or steel. The lock area is left uncut to accommodate your choice of a large L&R Manton flintlock or the L&R Queen Anne, both available in right or left. We can inlet the lock of your choice for $50.
