Introduction: Toy Musket (non-firing) for Kids

Kids + history channel = "Dad!  Can you make me a musket?"

So this is a non-firing child's toy to be used with much imagination and only 1 moving part (ie the ramrod).

It's not a replica of a flintlock - there is no firing mechanism.

It's the idea of what a musket is for a kid to play with - you just pull the imaginary trigger and make the appropriate Ka-Blammo type noise, then go through the motions of pretending to re-load with the ramrod accessory.

If you know how to make a flintlock mechanism then give up your day job and become a gunsmith or send me an instructable - as long as it's not knex cause I don't have any of that.

But hey, it looks like a musket and the kids love it so there you go.

If you want an instructable for this one then let me know.

Did you ever make an instruct able for this. We just got back from a visit to Valley Forge. Kids loved the Musket but was to big to bring back on the plane. Thought we might be able to make one or two. Thanks!
