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 piece of premium figured maple or walnut inlet for the barrel and drilled
for the ramrod. The lock, trigger, trigger plate, guard, sideplate and thimbles
are also inlet. Some cleanup of the inlets will be necessary. 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 tenon. It has a 1-20 twist to the rifling. The flintlock is a small Siler. The hardware is cast soft brass and sheet brass. All parts, pins and screws are included.
Kits now come with a nosecap included. The stock is not cut for it so you have
the option of using it or not.
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.
other options are available.
Kits are shipping out but expect a 2-3
Sorry for all the delays but I am
at the mercy of the parts suppliers who are at the mercy of the foundries
who are at the mercy of the metals dealers, etc., etc., etc........
Started doing my own waxes for the
brass parts due to the slow supply.
A large batch of wax castings just
went out to the foundry. We'll see how fast they can cast the parts and
get them to me.
As of 2/13/23 I have five .54 barrels and
three .50 on hand!
More are still on order but will be 2-3
months at least before delivery.
Locks are out of stock again with more
coming in by the end of March.
