Black Powder Weapons

Although none of these are as effective as modern weapons, they do have the advantage of being cheap and easy to make.

"Northover" Projector

Northover Projector

A home-made version of the Northover Projector issued to British Home Guard units during WWII. It is a simple weapon, consisting of little more than a smoothbore barrel mounted on a tripod or wheeled carriage. A black powder charge is used to fire the projectile, which can be a standard grenade, a black powder bomb, or a “molotov cocktail”.
