Developed from The Blunderbuss Musket, The Dragon was it's hand-held equivalent. Flintlock activated, The Dragon was a popular “Sea Service” pistol among Pirates and Privateers. Firing a single .70 caliber lead shot (or multiple slugs – as a Shot Pistol), the weapon had an effective range of around 40 feet. Due to it's weight (3 to 4-pounds in some cases), it was a close quarters or Boarding weapon. There were many variations of The Dragon (and Blunderbuss Pistol) designed and used.
