Another abandoned stump wood project, Southern Flintlock Rifle Quarter Sawed Maple .40 Cal. I enjoy making Rev War & French and Indian War period. Slower and simplier time, just like the shooting.
Shoots a .395 ball 3fg powder 60 grains with a slow soft push when firing.
This gun is accurate 5 shoots off hand 35 yards you can place a Kennedy half dollar over the pattern.
1 in 60 twist.
I try to build the best rifle I can and still learning everyday.
I might just post my first rifle so people starting to build not to be discouraged but it takes time, practice patience and desire to do the best you can.
I use the rifles in color guard for the Sons of American Revolution. One thing about this gun it is a good target gun.
