You'll notice the absence of a short starter in this video. I didn't notice any mention of coning the muzzle for loading ease. I wish my rifles loaded this easy with good accuracy.


I hardly ever watch any video over a minute or two before I tire of them. This is one I watched to the end. I enjoyed it a lot . A few questions I have had concerning how flintlock rifles were made back in their heyday were answered in the video. Thanks for posting the video.

It's a good documentary, and part of the reason for my interest in building muzzleloading guns. I watch it every year or two and still pick up on details I didn't notice before/

are they still in business?

I believe that museum is still open. I'm not sure what they do with the rifles they produce. Donation to fundraiser, sell to highest bidder to fund museum.... I don't know. But, I want to go!!
