All, I want to expand my knowledge with info from the forum collective. Here is a picture of a simple Traditions Pistol Kit I built up a few years back which was my first flint. Feel free to pick it apart. I'm looking for knowledge on setting up the position/angle etc of a flint in the jaws. First thing I noticed is the flint is upside down compared to how I set up the flint in my Dixie Cub .40. I did not shoot this pistol much but in the less than a dozen shots, I did not have any reliability issues, however the delay I would say I bet could be improved on. I had already drilled out the touch hole prior to shooting it to 1/16". At the time of the video and when I shot it, I did not have any 4F so used 3F BTW, I chose to post this in the Flintlock Rifle section cause My question is mainly for Flintlock Rifle even though in my example, I'm showing my pistol Video of just powder in the pan.
