For sale is a .40 caliber hickory stocked flintlock I built this past summer. Gun has a
Swamped A weight Colerain barrel 41" long. I didn't like the look of the crown so I shortened the barrel 1" and heavily coned the muzzle to allow use of conicals for deer hunting.
Chambers Late Ketland lock
Davis double set triggers. Front trigger is set up to be shot without setting the rear. Front trigger pull is 4-5#s Set trigger pull is less than a pound
It has a mix of steel and nickel silver hardware.
Hickory stock which has quite a few worm tracks in it. Stocked was finished with asphaltum and tung oil
LOP is 13& 7/8"
Guns weighs 7.6 #s

The only issue with the gun is the entry thimble is a little ugly. It got bent out of shape from getting hung in my shop drawer so I had to hammer it back out.

Gun will come with 2 bullet molds. A lee .390 mold and the .41 pistol bullet 200 grain mold. A bunch of round balls, bullets, overshot cards for use with the bullets, short started and bag. I made this starter longer than usual to help with loading the conical bullets. I found they need to engrave to the rifling fully so you can seat them with the ramrod. The little extra length of this starter does that and they load easily after they're started.

Gun shoots extremely well. a 40 grain charge of 3f with PRB and a 60 grain charge of 3F with the conicals both shoot to the sights. The conicals shoot 1/2" higher for me.
