Description

The Traditions™ Blunderbuss Rifle Kit comes in .54 caliber percussion ignition. The Blunderbuss features a flared steel barrel and features a single trigger percussion ignition. The rifle’s hardwood stock is accented by beautiful brass trigger-guard and butt plate furniture. The 16 3/4" trumpet-style barrel is designed to shoot .54 caliber round balls. Once finished the Traditions Blunderbuss Rifle is great to enjoy out to the range or simply display on your wall.

The Blunderbuss was considered a poor man's shotgun. The blunderbuss could be loaded with various scraps, rocks, or wood, although this would result in damage to the barrel of the gun. Most historical accounts have the blunderbuss being loaded with lead balls smaller than the bore diameter. The early Blunderbuss barrels were constructed from either steel or brass, and was usually flared. The barrel flaring served a two-fold purpose by increasing the spread of the shot, and serving as a funnel, making it easier to reload on horseback or on top of a moving carriage. The flared muzzle is the defining feature of the Blunderbuss, differentiating it from other large caliber carbines of it's day. Blunderbusses were notoriously short, with barrels under two feet in length, at a time when a typical musket barrel was over three feet long.

One of the best ways to get a real hands-on muzzleloading experience is to build a rifle yourself. Easy to read instructions guide you through the building process to a finished product. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing you built a fully functional rifle for shooting or display.
