I have a little company that i maintain for fun - www.IvanHenry.com I sell India made flintlocks for folks who are skilled enough to add a flint, drill a vent hole and tinker if need be or to folks who just want a really nice authentic "paper weight" that can be made to fire at a later date. My prices are great for what i deliver. I keep a small inventory. I've sold a couple of pieces to folks on the pub already.

These can be made to fire? Just looked at the website, they look very nice.

Yes. Drilling a vent hole and adding a flint. They might need some tweaking as they are from India.

Don't forget their accessories, pick & whisk etc, make your own sling though

I have all that, I'm just trying to find musket balls for a .75 cal. musket! That seems to be the trick at the moment. Any ideas? We're going to the gun club on the 12th and I need to be able to shoot.

Out of curisoity what is the diameter at the breech of that 75 cal musket?

It just arrived on Wednesday evening. I had enough time to take it out of the box and inspect it. I then pulled a 6am to 10:30pm day yesterday, so I have not had time to measure it yet. I will tonight and I'll let you know.

The fishtail has a bore opening of 3/4 inch. My Queen Anne has an opening of 1/2 inch.

.75 caliber is 3/4 of an inch, .50 caliber is half inch. I was interested in the outside diameter where the powder is packed, where the lock is. Also it would be helpful to know the diameter at the muzzle.
