American Pistol Kit


Basic Pistol Kit

This kit has everything to make a very nice 18th century American style pistol.


This is a new kit I am producing here in the shop. My plan is to keep a few on hand, ready to ship.


The wood is a premium piece of figured maple or walnut inlet for the barrel and drilled for the ramrod. The barrel is a Rice "A" weight swamped 10" long in .50 or .54 caliber. The breech plug is installed. The dovetails are cut for the sights and tennon. It has a 1-20 twist to the rifling. The flintlock is a small Siler by Jim Chambers. The hardware is cast soft brass and sheet brass. All parts, pins and screws are included. Kits now come with a nosecap as well. This stock is my design and feels more comfortable in the hand than any of the other kits available.


Choose your caliber and type of wood.

Percussion version is available on special order.

No other options are available.




Parts Update 5/10/22:


Barrels have arrived!



Still waiting on more locks.



Sorry for all the delays but I am at the mercy of the lock suppliers who are at the mercy of the foundries who are at the mercy of the metals dealers, etc., etc., etc........

Guard and sideplate castings are in short supply now. Bought all I could find. I will cast them myself again if necessary to keep the kits flowing out.  


As of 5/10/22 there are only seven .54 barrels left and five .50!


As before, while waiting on more locks, any preorder will include free shipping.

Below is a pistol built from one of the kits.

This one is in .54 caliber and has a walnut stock stained dark.

I chose to add some engraving. You might also add some carving around the tang and lock panels. Also it looks great plain.
