Large English flintlock blunderbuss swivel gun, late 1700s. 4166 grams, 38-1/2" long, 22" barrel, 2" bell. Hefty, iron-barreled guns like this required a swivel mount to stabilize it on a ship's rail and make it easier to reload and absorb the strong recoil when fired, this one with brass mounts, heavy hardwood stock cut for swivel yoke mount approximately at center (mount missing), proof marks at breech, ramrod and mount missing, two fasteners on butt missing, some pitting on barrel, but an interesting piece nonetheless.
