Hern’s Rat Tail Swivel Gun is patterned on the common ship’s rail mounted signal guns of the 1700’s. Mounted on a Y shaped yoke, this small gun would offer a larger mouth full of damage to repel boarders at sea, than may be carried in small arms – if the crew was prosperous enough to even have them. The swivel yoke mount allowed for a wide field of fire, while still holding the gun for firing and leaning back near vertical for ease of loading.
