Metal/Timber flintlock build.

Post  thecbstudio on Sat Aug 31, 2013 2:48 am

Hey Mates.

I've been doing some serious groundwork on a project of mine, mainly making a fairly heave ho accurate, non firing flintlock as wielded by Captain Jack.

I would have purchased one from Forgotten seas, or even the base model of Kentucky flintlock, but getting any sort of replica firearm imported into Australia is a huge pain in the booty. So I bought a George washington flintlock that a friend of mine had, and I've scavenged the Lockplate, mechanisms, trigger and guard and ramrod off it, and have ripped apart a zizzle knock off to cast up.

I'll update the whole thread with pics of most stages, but to begin with.....



Not polished yet, just a black wash in the details. This is also my first attempt at casting in metal, and not resin. I'm pretty proud honestly! What a Face

Looks good. I still have to learn casting, have a couple of the side plates and caps for a real gun build. Parts are in "German Silver", which I'm told is neither German, or Silver! But they are nice parts and come from Muzzle Loader Builders Supply. Working...slowly...on a firing model of the Perry pistol.

Be interested to see your progress. Treasure Pearl

How did you end up casting the buttcap? What did you use as your source, the Zizzle buttcap?
