When the fight gets out of hand, you need to bring in the heavy artillery. The Donnybrook Pirate Rifle is the sledgehammer among croquet mallets.
Often viewed as the precourser to the shotgun, the blunderbuss rifle was capable of spewing a devestating shower of projectiles at enemies. It was perfect for ship-to-ship combat where timing, rolling waves and difficult re-loading made it crucial for each shot to do as much damage as possible. The blunderbuss rifle wasn't a finesse weapon. It was the pirate equivalent of a weapon of mass-destruction, raking crowds with sprays of lethal projectiles.
This rilfe is a replica of an actual flintlock blunderbuss used in the 18th century. It doesn't actually fire, but it has fully operable locks and trigger, whihc means that pulling back the hammer and pulling the trigger produces a fantastically satisfying 'THWINK!!" sound and a shudder as the cock hits the striker plate. It's theoretically possible to put a cap of some sort on the striker to create an actual bang, but this is all theoretical, really. As is Quantum Physics, anti-matter and ethical insurance companies.
The rifle measures 29 inches in length and is about as intimidating a weapon as you'll find. It's a new favorite in the Strongblade warehouse after-hours wargames.
