Introduction: My Civil War Kentucky Long Rifle Working Replica

Picture of My Civil War Kentucky Long Rifle Working Replica

Well it's been about a month since I have posted something and I thought I needed to post something nobody has done, so I did a Kentuky long rifle. Ever since I have been on Instructables about 1 1/2 years I haven't made a working replica and what better to replicate than this. I have a toy replica myself (from when I was younger) so It's actually a replica of a replica.

Range 150 - 200feet
length 37 inches
Layers 5
realistic trigger placement
flintlock design
sturdy and realistic stock
a cross of two triggers
and very accurate

Sound good?? Should I post??

I have been searching for a K'nex musket for months, plz post it or tell me of one existing.

looks great, only one slight problem. The hammer (cock) should be on the side of the gun, so it can hit the frizzen cover, make a spark, and send that spark into the powder in the frizzen (on the real flintlock gun, anyway)
I can let that slip cause its knex, but dont let it happen again! (sarcasm)

Jesus. (author)2009-07-10

I_am_Canadian (author)2009-05-06

Seems to be missing a handle :-p Looks nice though.

Storm950 (author)I_am_Canadian2009-05-06

Doesn't have a a proper handle on the other one though..

I_am_Canadian (author)Storm9502009-05-06

Point there.

grevious (author)I_am_Canadian2009-05-07

the other one does have a proper handle, you can see the dip where the back of your hand goes and it most likely thins out on the sides where your hand goes around, so yes it does have a proper handle.

DJ Radio (author)grevious2009-07-09

it may be very hard to make such a handle on a knex gun.

I looked at a picture of a real one and it has the exact same handle. It's just the kind of handle that gun has.

DJ Radio (author)2009-05-14

If this is a sling gun, ehhh... If its a ram gun, cool, post!

An Villain (author)DJ Radio2009-06-29

sling, Tomboyrme trigger and squarish bullet.

Master_Zane (author)DJ Radio2009-05-17

I think it might be some sort of a KillerK mechanism

knexsniper1 (author)2009-06-21

POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This gun looks sooooo awesome!

You got that model of the musket at the Lexington Green, didnt you?

arrow shot (author)2009-05-07

realistic trigger placement realistic stock and very accurate these so called 'facts' are oppinions looks cool though. i agree with odin, no sight really seen. I also agree with canadian, the handle is short and stubby, barely a handle at all

arrow shot (author)arrow shot2009-05-07

Nevermind, the picture in the slideshow proves me wrong

TwistedParadox (author)2009-05-06

It's hardly a sight

yannyboy (author)2009-05-06

yes you should
