Introduction: 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.

FACTS:
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??

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)

Point there.

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.

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.

arrow shot made it! (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
