This fine piece is a fully operational English Swivel Gun of blued steel with a firing/display base made of Brazilian Ipe. This amazingly stout and heavy hardwood is salvaged material from the famous Coney Island Boardwalk. The wood is 2 1/4 inches thick, is over eight inches wide and twenty inches long.
The one inch bore, eighteen inch long gun itself is fully machined carbon steel rolled bar stock professionally blued. The swivel bushing is bronze and the swivel mount is machined, fitted and welded structural carbon steel. The overall weight is 31 pounds.
Included with this gun's listing is a quoin, a combination ladle/ramrod and a vent pick as shown. The knotty walnut quoin wedge in the photos is a left over from a previous production run and is there for the photo shoot only. We will provide a proper quoin before we ship this gun.
Conceived only as a 'Real Gun', we had your pride of ownership in mind.
