The blowgun or blowpipe has a long history that spans the globe. Many authorities believe it was first invented in Malaysia where it migrated through the Malaysian and Indonesian archipelago's finding its way to the Philippines and as far north as Japan. The blowgun, however, was not just a southeastern weapon; it also surfaced in the western hemisphere in the jungles of South and Central America, moving as far north as the southeastern United States.

Blowguns were originally invented to serve as a hunting weapon. They were used to bag small animals and birds, with small stones or hardened clay pellets being used for ammunition. Eventually, most hunters discovered that they could take much larger animals by the use of thin wooden darts that were laced with lethal poisons. The poison was derived from the sap of specially cultivated vines.

In the early 1960s and '70's, blowguns began to gain a small foothold in the United States. During this period, the Jivaro Blowgun Company ran a myriad of small advertisements for their .38 caliber blowgun. These were featured in the back of many adventure, gun and survival magazines. Eventually, in the late 1980's they faded away.

But the mystique of the blowgun itself did not fade away. Instead, a number of companies quickly jumped into the vacuum that was created by Jivaro's demise, and, by the early 90's, the market was flooded with a horde of cheap, poorly constructed blowguns. Most were sold as novelty items, with inefficient, short, 2 and 3 foot tubes made of paper-thin aluminum and firing an insipid .40 caliber dart. The only exception was the J.R. Stupero Company and their successor the J.W. McFarlin Company which sold an authentic hunting grade blowgun that was made of thick, strong Aluminum and was capable of propelling a heavy .625 Magnum dart.

In 1983, Cold Steel's President, Lynn C. Thompson, bought the first of the many .625 Magnum blowguns he would eventually own. He became an instant fan and has, over the last two decades, practiced exclusively with it. He has taken it on several hunting trips in the U.S. and has used it on three African Safari's! When the opportunity to acquire the J.W. Mcfarlin Company arose, Lynn purchased it outright, taking title to all of their trademarks and inventory.

Now, after a brief reorganizing period, we hereby inaugurate the birth of our new division; Big Bore™ Blowguns, home of the .625 Magnum.™ Big Bore™ Blowguns will specialize in large blowgun calibers like .625 Magnum because they are capable of shooting darts that are 20% faster and three times heavier then our competition. They offer vastly improved killing power compared to smaller, .40 caliber darts.

Since we are not interested in selling cheap, shoddy toys, we will concentrate on 4 and 5-foot blowguns. For extra accuracy and range, we sell a two-foot extension as an accessory. Both of the basic models come with a mouthpiece, rubber ferrule, dart quiver, and 36 darts (6 Stun Darts, 15 Mini Broad Head, and 15 Bamboo). We also sell a 3-inch thick high-density foam target for safer indoor practice.

Large caliber blowguns like our .625 Magnum™ have an effective range out to 20 yards or more. With practice, a skilled user can hit a two-inch circle at amazing distances, delivering a heavy weight dart. That's a payload easily capable of penetrating a half-inch sheet of plywood.

Accuracy and range like this enable an experienced hunter to take small game like doves, quail, squirrels and rabbits in complete silence without danger of over penetration or errant darts striking livestock or humans in the distance.

Shooting a blowgun is great fun. It is an activity that can be enjoyed indoors or out, in sunny or inclement weather. Skill with a blowgun can lead to many inexpensive hunting adventures and stand you in good stead in survival or self-defense situations. Try our new Big Bore .625 Magnum™ and you'll soon find yourself addicted to the fun of shooting the world's most powerful blowgun!

I have both the single piece blowgun and thw two piece blowgun, they are NOT the same... The two piece blowgun is NOT the made with the same diameter material as the single piece blowgun, therefore it is NOT as sturdy. I feel the two piece blowgun should be made with the same material as the single piece blowgun and that one extra end cap should be included with the purchase...
