Product Description

Original 18th Century British Bronze Barrel Flintlock Blunderbuss - Marked Liverpool

An original 230+ year old historic antique firearm complete with a signed Certificate of Authenticity. This is easily the largest original 18th century bronze barreled flintlock blunderbuss we have ever seen. Massive bronze barrel measuring 23" in length (plus tang), but the bore is a huge 3 inches in diameter. 

The Flintlock mechanism is over sized being 8.5 long whereas a standard Brown Bess lock plate is only 7" in length. The mounts, two ramrod pipes, butt plate, trigger guard and side plate are all brass and complete with wooden ram rod.

The lock is of early continental form with no re-enforcement on the pan and the cock is the curved leaf type rear spur. The Barrel bears British proof marks and the heavy bronze barrel is engraved LIVERPOOL in heavy block letters.

This weapon shows no attachment or mounting points, such as a rail gun would have, so one can only assume is was intended to be fired as a shoulder weapon which is nearly impossible as it weighs 33 pounds! Almost certainly intended to be supported on a ship's rail this would have been a formidable bit of personal artillery.

The full length walnut stock shows signs of long ago wood worm skillfully sealed and restored, but this is not a candidate for shooting. Possibly military but more likely intended for use on a trading or East India Company vessel. Possibly dating as early as 1750 this

is the most impressive and extremely heavy blunderbuss we have ever offered, totally unique and almost certainly never to be seen again.
