About: If your tastes tend toward larger bore sizes, like cannon size bores, a linstock lets you stand far enough away from the vent to fire the gun and not get singed. This is a high end version of a very old artilleryman’s tool. The grip terminates in a distinctive brass “ground point” allowing the linstock to be easily struck into the ground vertically, in a safe area, when not in immediate use. The brass shank is configured with a sliding retainer to keep the length of slow match in place during use. These are built by hand, one at a time and can be customized for length.
Specifications: Turned solid brass and walnut construction. Overall length is 32 inches. The grip is 8 inches long and the ground point is 3 ½. The linstock includes 48 inches of untreated cotton slow match.
