An apostle is a small wooden used by musketeers to carry pre-measured loads of gunpowder for their muskets.
Both weapons used a matchlock to fire the weapon and were muzzle loaded. To load the weapon, the shooter would unplug a wooden container called an apostle (because there were 12 of them) from his leather bandoleer. He would then pour a pre-measured amount of loose gunpowder from the apostle into the muzzle of the barrel. Then a lead ball from a sack was placed into the muzzle and rammed home into the chamber with a wooden scouring stick (a.k.a. ramrod).
I am sorry we do not ship to the Switzerland as the Swiss customs requires a special licence for import of weapons (that we do not hold). You can make your order, as long as you can provide a delivery address in the EU.
