“Building a (Kentucky) Flintlock Pistol” featuring Mike Miller from Paducah, KY. Mike builds a fine flintlock pistol from a curly maple stock blank and fabricates most of the parts.
The tapered and flared octagon Bob Paris barrel is inlet with hand tools; the brass mounts, sights, tennon, trigger, and sideplate are made from sheet stock.
The guard is a commercial casting.
Mike installs a touch-hole vent, carves the stock, and adds a beautiful traditional finish over nitric acid stain.
Highlights a Chambers pistol kit, but the video shows in detail how to build a very nice traditional and authentic pistol. 2 Disc DVD 3 hours long.
