    it was a little hard to make a realilistic looking musket with a flintlock that fires...

    but it mainly loads like a musket beacause its muzzle loaded and u have to ram it down...

    I've made a muzzle loading musket with the little thingy on the side that makes the spark (doesn't really make a spark with knex of course :P ) so the mech all goes with a chain reaction, its lag time is similar to the real thing.
    If you want i can make it again and tell you when i post it, it that ok?

    oh, its pretty good, even though it doesn't look it.

    seriously though, who would want a square barrelled, muzzle loading thing that looks like... a skeletal thing that is just about ready to destroy itself.
