Where to buy actual firing flintlock kits and guns?
#1
I know I have seen a catalog or website that had tons of real flintlock firing build kits and replica guns for sale. I'm looking for a black powder frontier or civil war area replica flintlock rifle and pistol but I want them to actually shoot, not Collector's Armory non-firing guns. The kits and even the complete guns were quite affordable also. Any suggestions on a supplier?

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Nothing is cheap anymore. I have built Hakens rifles before but they just didn't keep me interested...everybody has one. I now have two Kentucky rifles (one for hunting...not as pretty) and a Lancaster (very pretty). They display on the wall really well and garner more attention from my gun buddies than whats in the safe. The barrels get ordered with the kit...there's a wide choice.

civil war era stuff will mostly be cap locks or cap and ball revolvers.
the fabrication doesn't stop in the shop, that's what the field guys are for.

How about trying Jacobsburg Historical Society. They have an early American craft school, including classes on building a muzzleloader, powder horns, leather possible bags, and other classes geared towards the lady folk (no offense intended as the class my son took for horns included a lady).

The link to the main page is http://www.jacobsburg.org
