    Posting this in several categories to maximize the feedback.

    I'm in search of gun builders with experience and willingness to build a flintlock pistol, whether custom or one with parts from Rifle Shoppe.

    I really haven't been impressed with those from India and would rather have something of higher quality and period correctness, if possible.

    I'm kind of a pistol junkie and as of right now, I haven't settled on what pistol I would like to have built first, but my interests lie more in the European military and dueling style flintlocks (British, French, Spanish primarily though I also like the Prussian/Dutch).

    In any case, I'm in the market for recommendations as it seems builders who build these aside from the mass produced ones are somewhat hard to find and I have neither the skill nor the inclination to try to get the parts from the Rifle Shoppe and do it myself.

    Thank you in advance for any recommendations.

    Yeah, that's a good point lol.

    I limited it to two, as this post seems to pertain to both.
