Knex Musket (Springfield Model 1795)

Picture of 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.

Lol thanks, this was just for a class project, I wasn't planning on making instructions.
Could u maybe use your wonderful brain and come up with a pistol similar to this? That would be sweet
Sorry, I can't. My knex have been put away do to my relocation to another home. : ( Also, I kind of wanted to start other projects with my knex. Example: I was hoping to build an assault rifle of some kind soon...
Talking to raz1r
Wow that is awesome! Finally something awesome posted! Its defiantly eye candy seeing that hammer from the first picture.
Now THIS is one of the best "replicas" I've seen in a long while!
Thanks, you were away for some while.
Yeah, I sure was. Also, what is the ammo for this gun by the way? And no problem!
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?

Yeah, my peers thought that the gun was really awesome. I was the most talked about project through the whole class period.
Awesome that must of been pretty cool :D
Awesome. I'm thinking of doing just the breech and handle, without the stock and long barrel, as some sort of flint pistol.
