Flintlock is a general term for any firearm that uses a flint striking ignition mechanism. The term may also apply to a particular form of the mechanism itself, also known as the true flintlock, that was introduced in the early 17th century, and rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the matchlock, the wheellock, and the earlier flintlock mechanisms.
The true flintlock continued to be in common use for over two centuries, replaced by percussion cap and, later, the cartridge-based systems in the early-to-mid 19th century. Although long superseded by modern firearms, flintlock weapons enjoy continuing popularity with black-powder shooting enthusiasts.
Looking for a 50cal flintlock with double triggers. Prefer tenons and wedge pins (but not critical) and made in USA or Italy. Not interested in Traditions or Spanish guns.
Nice wood would be a bonus but I am not averse to refinishing. Custom guns considered as well.
If it's north of 8lbs, you...
During my hiatus from firearms, I developed a strong hobby in woodworking. The idea of building a firearm is very appealing to me (would have to find a gunsmith to do the metalwork for me)...and what better than a set of dueling pistols?
My first inclination is to do something to pair the set -...
Thought I'd post a few pictures of my recently finished longrifle.
It's a chambers kit in. 54 cal. 38" barrel, mostly curly maple stock.
What a project! I've built a number of firearms, but this one has been the most satisfying, my 1911 being a close runner up.
Now I'm just trying to work up...
Bill if you're on here, thank you man for letting me shoot your incredible flintlock shotgun.
Was at TCGC this AM taking advantage of the $10 FFL transfers the club started offering this year. Bought a great firearm from a form member. After the transfer, the Club Officer that did the...
I have a :
.32 Flintlock Pedersoli Kentucky rifle with a 32 " barrel and I can
only get about 11-12 shots out of the barrel before the bore gets
so tight I'm afraid I'll get a ball stuck part way down. I'm using
Goex FFFg black powder.
In the first outing I used pre-lubed patches...
Yesterday I picked up a Pedersoli flintlock in .32 caliber and the barrel seems "difficult" to remove
for regular cleaning. It doesn't have wedges; it actually looks like the barrel was put in with finishing nails
(I'll attach photos from the manufacture).
With my old eyes...
Today was literally a blast for me! I connected on this forum with roundball58, and he took me out to an outdoor shooting range. I have a little experience shooting a hand gun at a still target indoors, but I have never shot at a moving target before. I had to look online to have any idea about...
@AndyinEverson - I saw this crie de coeur on a UK-based forum this afternoon - can you help him out?
'I saw a very interesting flintlock rifle the other day. It was a "Ketland" flintlock rifle made approximately 1780 according to the owner.
It was a fine looking rifle and in very good...
I was hoping that someone on this thread might know who the manufacturer of this muzzleloader may be and what a current value might be. I'm not sure if it's a factory gun or a kit gun. Barrel length is approx. 30", smooth bore. The only markings I can find on it are the word London and a...
I have one .50 caliber Hawken for sale with a rather unique flintlock mechanism (at least to me, I'm by far used to the caplock, I've never held a flint hawken in person before). It has some surface rust that needs attending near the touch hole but other than that appears to be in great shape...
The 1730 was a popular pistol, stolen directly from earlier Prussian designs that proved to be handy in close quarters. This style of "long pistol" was made infamous in England with its association with highwaymen and gentleman robbers. Hundreds of thousands were produced into the 1760's by...
