My Civil War Kentucky Long Rifle Working Replica

Introduction: My Civil War Kentucky Long Rifle Working Replica

About: Im Killer~SafeCracker, I started using Instructables in 2009. I mainly post in the Knex world, but I venture out sometimes. Check out all my instructables, you wont be disappointed! I live for music and I p...

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)
