i tried it but only founded non-working replica.

thanks, i will gonna check those.

P.S : another reason why i'm interested is that flint rifle aren't restricted other than be 18 or over, so i could leave it at my cabin, and use it for fun or small game.

I would be lying if I said that I wasn't aroused at the thought of one of those.

Try Dixie Gun Works - they cater to the blackpowder crowd and have a lot of stuff like that.

We did a blunderbuss at work. It just aired on the tv show a week or two ago, I think. It's a 4-bore that we bored out the last few inches of, to taper/bell it out for increased pattern size and aesthetic awesomeness.

The kit came from this guy: http://customblunderbuss.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and Will did a shit load of wood work to get it looking like this:

Regarding loads, the guy who built it commented:
4-bore cartridge guns are loaded with 14-16 drams of Fg or FFg. I use FFg for a faster burning rate to get a little more velocity out of a very short barrel. The use of FFg also increases breech pressure compared to a coarser grade. I feel it is safe to use FFg in the 4-bore blunderbusses that I build. I build the blunderbuss barrel and breech plug to the same spec as a 4-bore rifle designed to fire a 1750 grain ball with a full ounce (16 drams or 437 grains) of powder. I don't use that much powder because it will never get close to burning efficiently in short barrels. I came up with a 200 grain standard loading by shooting the weapon over a white sheet with progressively higher loads until I started seeing unburned powder. That occurred at around 220 grains.

Oh, and I have to add... it's probably the single coolest firearm I've seen in the shop. It's funny, of all the things I've gotten hands on, that one still makes me the most envious.

Middlesex Village Trading Company- Indian made Muskets Blunderbust list price is $575.00
Sitting Fox Muzzleloading -Kits in the white or finished guns "American made" Cannot open website with Firefox browser
Loyalist Arms- Indian made Musket- Blunderbust-$525 They are in Canada
Military Heritage to me is bottom of the list for an Indian Made Musket.
Try some of the Pirate re-enactors forums, you might pick one up used.
Hope this helps.

Saw the episode - the wood and finish on that stock is fap-tastic. Will did a beautiful job on that one; very, very purty.

replica-Blunderbuss

Post by tonytwotimes » Sat Mar 24, 2012 9:43 pm

I thought I saw streaking in the finish. TV doesn't always do justice to wood finishes though.

On a related note that was the only episode of the show I've seen. I only caught like 5 minutes of it before I had to turn it off. No offense to JamesCannon, but reality tv makes me wanna rip my goatee out with channel locks.

I would like to have an old flintlock or the like just to shoot every once in a while, and leave hanging on the wall the rest of the time.

Hey, would those milsurp bulk flechettes work well out of a blunderbuss, or would they gouge the shit out of the bore? They're hardened steel AFAIK. The flechettes I mean.

Other than the streaking in the finish (I've looked it over in detail and never noticed)
I agree with every part of your comment, and I have a full beard!

I'm waiting until we get a lathe with a larger through-bore so I can turn a barrel and bore it. Otherwise, my machines aren't big enough for that kind of work yet. But one day I will, oh I will, make myself a blunderbuss from scratch. It will be done.

Flechettes? Silverware/flatware. Blunderbuss loads should be as eclectic as possible!

If you made some sort of plastic shot cup or something it would prevent damage to the barrel and probably result in a tighter seal against the barrel.

With the right bore, you could probably use a Red Solo Cup :lol:

Ohgoddamnit Azrael!!

Now i want one of those and you´re guilty beyond any doubt for it! :mrgreen:


But as far as practical muzzleloaders go, i think you´d be better off searching for, like a double barrel 12 or even 10 gauge if you can find it. Also look into the Pedersoli Howdah Pistol grip double barrels (that can also take a buttstock).

Afaik, in Canada, if a shotgun like a pedersoli Howdah comes from the factory with such a short barrel, it will be legal to not only own, but it might also be available at 18 with no registration since it´s a blackpowder muzzleloader.

Looking at other countries, makes me glad that i can buy single and double barrel shotguns at 18 without registration, and non semi automatic long guns at 18 with local registration at a gunsmith.... (that will end in 4 months though, thanks to the FUCKINGGODDAMNITEUROPEANFUCKINGUNION.... fuck off! :evil: ) after that, it´s central registration. We can keep our shotguns without re-registrating them though, but who knows how long that will last? Until they come up with some new goddamn law ten years from now?

Sorry for my rant, but it makes my blood boil that these goddamn assholes in bruessel have any say about my countries laws whatsoever. Fuck off and die. Don´t ask why, just fuck off and die. :evil:
