Civil War Musket & Pistol ball_obv

Civil War Musket & Pistol ball

The English Civil War (1642-1651) was the first conflict fought on English soil using handheld firearms en masse with a tactic called ‘Pike and Shot’. This meant a large formation of infantry with guns firing and pike defending against attack. Most lead ammunition was made using hand moulds by the men who used it. This makes every ball different, made to the requirements of the man and his gun. Over lockdown we had a chance to sort out and found an old box of this shot. Weight suggests the majority are pistol balls, but there are a few musket balls too! We have priced these to please with a very limited number of pairs of a Musket and Pistol balls available. Each will come with a certificate of Authenticity. Get some of the first bullets Made in Britain.
