Introduction: Knex Musket (Springfield Model 1795)

Hey everyone, this is my musket that I built for a school project. The gun does shoot and is pretty powerful. It was based off of the Springfield Model 1795 Musket which was one of the first U.S. infantry guns. Believe me I know, I typed up a 831 word research paper about it. Anyways, I'll stop blabbering you can just look at the gun.

I know that this is an old post, but could you possibly post the mechanism please? I am looking to build a hammer action type gun.

This was built so long ago I can't even remember. The hammer was for show, had nothing to do with the mechanism. I don't know if I'll be able to post anything with the schedule I have...

Yeah, I sure was. Also, what is the ammo for this gun by the way? And no problem!

author
Raz1r Knex Bull3t made it! (author)Raz1r Knex Bull3t2013-02-26

This gun can use just about any type of rod for ammo. Although, due to the friction between the barrel and the rod, I used a cut rod for ammo about the length of a blue rod.

Did you have to bring it into class? If so, how did all your peers react?

author

Yeah, my peers thought that the gun was really awesome. I was the most talked about project through the whole class period.

Awesome. I'm thinking of doing just the breech and handle, without the stock and long barrel, as some sort of flint pistol.
