I've seen this .54 blunderbuss percussion model before but only factory finished.
It's been made by Ardesa for a long time but rarely imported until now, and especially not in kit form.
Ardesa has been making it in .54 and 20 gauge percussion and usually it costs over $500 in factory completed form.
These are the only factory percussion blunderbuss models that I've ever seen.
And it's a real pleasure to see one now being offered as an affordable kit.
But it's probably only a limited time offering through this Sportsman's Guide exclusive and once they're gone, they're gone.

Be sure to pan over the 2 photos with your mouse pointer to see the details really close up.

Not even a worthy wall hanger at that, or any, price.

Is kind of expensive for what it is, but has promise. Should be a flintlock though.

Kind of looks like the too-wide bell of the muzzle is an add-on. See the seam line?

The Doc is out now. :cool:

Some musician is missing his horn.

I have to admit, that is tempting. It looks like a fun project and a fun shooter.

Looks weird.
