One of the truths of close quarter combat is that a rifle, shotgun or musket can be an improvised club in the absence of suitable ammunition or a bayonet. It's also true that an 8-10 lb. rifle, grasped by its long barrel and swung with both hands hits like a freight train and, if it doesn’t break, will crush bones like dry twigs and pulp flesh into jelly.
Cold Steel's version is made of Polypropylene, which is highly resistant to shock and is practically unbreakable making it particularly suitable for use in this weapon. And as an added bonus, this material is highly resistant to the elements and won't warp, rot, shrink crack or splinter the way wood does.
For those interested in re-enacting various periods of our frontier history, this club has a very realistic wood grain texture which can easily be repainted to replicate the finish of historical models. You can also customize it with brass studs, tacks, feathers or horsehair.
