Here is a modern Beaufort Naval Armorers production, made of carbon steel, polished and 'in the white'. This fine piece is a bit over 48 inches long, weighs 70 pounds with a 1.75 inch bore and is fully operational. This original's design is typical of guns used by the early colonists. We have dated the muzzle 1587 in honor of the Roanoke Colony AKA "The Lost Colony". We have seen many representations/historical woodcuts etc. of this style used by the "Conquistadors" and by other countries as well as later "Pyrates" from areas around the world.

The swivel mount for our gun model has been modernized with a built in breaking system which is easily trainable however it stays firmly where it is aimed/elevated.

The breech "Thunder Mug" is designed to load using up to 18 Drams (Approx. 1.1 Oz.) of FFg genuine black powder which is ample as seen in the following test firing video;

Also; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02DgojjbxZ0

The first shot in the video is a 9 oz. iron round shot which shows the first two skips pretty well. With the naked eye we witnessed a total of 5 skips beyond which was to far to see in the video. The fifth skip was approx. 1/2 mile distance. The second shot is a golf ball. One golf ball shot also skipped 5 times with our eyewitness however I can only make out the first close in hit/splash in this shot which may only be the 'sabot' or perhaps the wad/cards in the video. A golf ball in general appears to perform the same as iron shot with the same amount of powder, as far as the easily visible range is concerned. I'm sure the velocity and FPE are different between the two shot types.

This gun ships in a heavy duty wooden crate which is also capable of mounting the gun for firing practice.
