  1. Old trigger guards and triggers.

    Just as a matter of curiosity, why are you making a non operational flintlock from scratch ? It's the same amount of work to make a functional one. Are there legal issues where you live ? >>>> Cascabel I need the practice plus it's my first time making time a gun replica ever.
  2. Old trigger guards and triggers.

    I'm looking for a trigger guard because i am making a non operational flintlock from scratch. It'd be nice to find a cheap and decent looking one. It's for a pistol flintlock.
  3. Leather Tankard?

    What would be the right way to go about making a leather tankard? What leather? Would i need oils? Should i tan it? Do i need a wood insert for the handle? A sewing awl good for stitching it up?
