I believe Britishmuzzleloaders also explored the Indian reproductions a bit in his quest for a Baker rifle. Quite the interesting hurdle, thanks for sharing!

Many, many years ago, Dixie Gun Works sold a flintlock blunderbuss kit with a .75 cal brass barrel. I wish I would have bought one back in the early 1970's, but I couldn't afford a $279 kit then.

And notice comments have more than one level of reply, unlike YT. Anyone can reply to this.

Nice one Karl. That machining footage was quite exciting. Did you consider clamping the firearms in place for the touch hole drilling? Long ago, when I was doing workshop practice for my Engineering degree, I'm sure my Instructors would have expected that.

Given the size of the drill versus the size of the work piece, this looks fine to just hold down with your hand. But if you're not sure, clamping won't hurt.

Awesome video Karl, As soon as I can, I may have to get into blackpowder. What is a good starter pistol for a complete noob?

If you want a much better quality flintlock than indian made or second hand market mystery, there is Kibler's Longrifles. He produces new manufacture CNC made Kentucky Longrifles. He also just released his own CNC manufactured flintlock. All US made because that is important these days! Cheers https://www.jimkibler.net/

I believe a lot of tool companies make a spring-loaded center punch that is pretty nice for marking holes so the bit doesn't walk around when starting the hole, also really nice if you happen to not own a drill press.

Early entry into the shotgun class, except way cooler! This totally makes me want to re watch some classic pirate movies.
