Title: Building a Double Barrel Flintlock Shotgun
Post by: runastav on January 31, 2016, 07:37:11 PM
Hi All!
I will try to build a double barrel shotgun from the nice book by William R. Brockway :)
Have a Swede Husquarna made Lefaucheux cal 16, and Manton Flintlocks is on the way from the great land Amerika  in the west ;)

Yes - Jerry - agree that "action" vice is being used very well indeed.

Runar, I love to follow your projects and very much admire your talent.  I built a 16ga double flint about 10 years ago and I was lucky in that I found a set of un-chambered barrels so I got to keep the inch or so at the breech you had to cut off.  Good luck with your project and judging by your past work, I expect your shotgun will  rival those of Manton or Purdey.

Ha! I just noticed that! I was entertaining the thought of a build like this just the other day. I'll definetly stay tuned! Will

This should be fun Runar.  I built one a couple of summers ago and really enjoyed it.  I am looking forward to watching your progress.

I had issues with getting the lock springs to clear the barrels, so you want locks with the springs as low as possible.  As shown in the  book, it will require you to file notches in the sides of the barrels.  I am sure you will figure it out!

looking forward to this one too!  Between Runar, Taylor and Firelock, I'll never get anything done anymore.  I'll just sit back with popcorn and a beer and watch you guys!  But at least I'll maybe learn something, instead of just turning my brain to mush watching TV.

Post by: L. Akers on February 02, 2016, 06:46:26 PM
Runar,  if the 7/8 plug does not work out consider a 22MM x 1,50.  I had the same concerns about barrel wall thickness as you in my 16 and opted for the metric.

Hi All! And thank you
L.Akers, I will remember that :) Breach plugs soon ready for standing breach. Beeswaks on haksaw, and you saw like in butter ;)

Runastav:  I think you should have cut the rectangular holes about 1/4" further up the plate - closer to the top plate.  The way it is now, you will have a lot of standing breech above the plain of the barrels.
Title: Re: Building a Double Barrel Flintlock Shotgun
Post by: Daryl on February 06, 2016, 09:11:19 PM
Appears with the heights as made, the tang will be very thin, if reduced to just barely above the height of the barrels.
I guess we'll see what happens later.

Taylor and Daryl, yes the top is ca 5mm to high and will be maskined away so the next photos will show the result ;)The topstrap is before maskining ca8mm thick.The finished topstrap will be 1/8" ca 3mm and line with barrelribtop.

The barrels appear to be too low because he does not have the rib extension installed yet. I'll betcha the height will be correct after it's on.

Does that keep the current hole from "collapsing" into the previous hole?

Runastav, from your latest post it looks like you are not stepping in the breeches.  The gun would be slimmer through the breech if you would.  It is fun to watch your progress.

I'm a little confused by you lock screw, are going to have enough material to get rid of the Allen screw slot?  I have a set of 12gauge barrels waiting to be used in such a project, I'm just unsure about the breaching.  I've done single barrels in the lathe, but I know there's not a lot to work with on shotgun barrels.  Your doing a great job, can't wait to see how you finish this one Runar.

Can this be made a sticky somewhere so it's easy to find when done ? The book by Bill is wonderful but seeing it in real time quality photos is brilliant. I built one many years ago and although somewhat crude due to my being a neophyte (32 years ago). A bit crude but totally functional. There simply were not good locks and such to work with.I said I would never do another but a couple years back a guy in our club got all inspired after reading Bill's book and decided to build one. He got the barrels breeched by a machinist, a standing breech started and the barrel channels plowed in. He then quit on it. I bought all he had  (barrels, wood, locks,triggers trigger guard, buttplate, and standing breech) for $300. My plan is to make it my final piece de resistance.60 plus guns away from being a neophyte I figure I can do a batter job this time.I plan to farm out the engraving and checkering. BTW early flint doubles(some) used the ground angle breech plugs like this one so it's totally correct way of doing it. The notched breech plugs allowed a narrower gun which was common on later guns. A great build along. Congrats sir.

Looking great.

"Taylor, if the Italian folks(Pedersoli) can do we can Wink I will soft solder a rib bit when the breach plugs are finished with liner and the clean out screw, photo show my cal 12 Pedersoli perkusjon shootgunbarrel."

That is how I did mine.  The remaining rib you cut off the breech section will match perfectly.  The idea in the book to make one plug that has an integral rib and keys in to the other plug would be very time consuming to make.  The matting on the rib would not match the barrel either.

It is probably just my observation, but I think that if a shotgunner misses a bird, he simply buys a new more expensive gun.  And THAT is why the percussion ignition system was invented.  Couldn't be the shooter.

With all due respect to whoever wrote the book shown, using a rotary file (burr) to shape the wood near the tang is terrible advice.  Don't always believe what you read.  It doesn't take a skillful or knowledgeable person to write.  Sorry, but this sort of thing makes me cringe.

I agree with Jim...there's a place for power tools but this is not one of them.  Things go sideways in a hurry with power tools and wood.  Sharp chisels are the right tools for that job.  Much more control.

While I don't prefer to use power tools at home building stuff that I do for fun, I can use power rotary tools without worrying about them getting out of control. Die grinders and all that is associated with them kinda go along with what I do for a living so I've gotten rather good with them.

Bill:  I agree with you on your observations about Mr. Brockway.  I would simply caution a new-comer to this craft to acquire the necessary skill before attempting to use a power grinder.  I, for example, couldn't do it.  I know my limitations.  And the last thing I need is to do it fast.

With all due respect to Mr. Kibler and Mr. Sapergia, That book was written by Bill Brockway, one of the finest craftsmen that ever existed in this sport. If he used a rotary file to shape the wood, you can bet he could control it.

Be Well,
 Bill

Bill,

I'm not familiar with Bill Brockway's work.  I'm sorry if you think I've disparaged his name.  I can say this,  I've been around the very best craftsman this endeavor has to offer and I can assure you the notion of using rotary burrs to shape stocks would be frowned on by all.  Carving tools, rasps, files, scrapers shaves etc. are THE way to go for this sort work.   Don't really care what you or Mr. Brockway has to say about it...

Runar,

I admire how resourceful and hard working you are.   And I absolutely love the saying you shared.  I'll remember that!

Jim

Is that how you shape your kit stocks? Each to his own way of doing the work on a rifle. I too have looked at work by Bill Brockway. The end product was very nice regardless of the method used. We all have our way of doing things. Many don't post on ALR because of the immediate criticism if the way they do things isn't PC or HC. I don't use a rotary die grinder and a simple warning of how easy it is to take unwanted wood off a stock in a hurry would ha e been sufficient. Most of us use power tools in one for the other. Tim

I'm not trying to control a rotary cutter by hand when making stocks!  Yes, you can take the mindset, "to each his own" or if you take things a little more seriously, you try to learn time tested professional techniques.

Hmmmmm....if you where going that route perhaps use it with a dremel would give a little more control than on a big drill.I think it was more a warning to inexperienced builders that using one of those things could get away from you in a hurry.What ever works for you is the best motto but a smart man listens to advise from folks who been there and done that and also knows his limitations.

It does come across as a disparaging comment when you say you don't care what certain people have to say on a subject.

I typed a whole rant about this but deleted it. This topic is about Runar and his incredible build. Keep up the great job Runar, rotary tool and all.

Yes, a little more patience and kindness might be warranted.  

From my perspective...  I've spent more than half my life obsessed with this stuff; studying original work,  endless experimenting to learn the best methods, studying with those who we admire most, continually refining techniques etc.  This is not a hobby for me.  It's my profession.  This background is very different than the vast majority of those who participate here.   Patience can wear thin...

Yes, results are what matter and that's how we judge a person's knowledge and ability when it comes to building these firearms.  Let me just say the list of those I admire most is not too large. I respect and listen to what they say.  In my view, it would help some on forums like this to follow the same approach a little more.

I don't see this as a place to just pat someone on the back.  If something jumps out as being a ridiculous way of going about a task, I'm going to say it and not apologize.

I am truly inspired by your work Runar ;). You are a craftsman that can make a "silk purse out of a sow's ear". I think after I finish my next few projects I will put those SXS barrels to use that have been lying around for the last 12+ years. I'll leave the rotary tool out of the equation as I am not good with those things ;D. Thanks again and this has been a great picture adventure in SXS builds 8).

As to the touch hole liner, Larry Pletcher did testing to prove that low in the pan is fastest.  For years the common belief was to have the center-line level with the top of the pan, but this is not the best location.  I believe he showed that higher than the center-line was problematic, but I'm not certain.  The guidance provided by the book isn't the best in my view.

 just a  reminder runastav . by soldering the rib to both breech plugs you now make it so  that the plugs cannot be removed . This is Why  the plugs were made as bill suggested in his book . thus making it so that depending on the plug  needing to be remove , the other may have to come out first .
 What I did many years ago was to add the   small section of rib by screwing it down by coming up from the under side . That way the  small section of rib can be removed and the plugs screwed out  if need be ..

Nice job so far

Great Job overall on your first double build. You are a talented craftsman there is no doubt and the thing I like best is " you ain't scared of nothing".  ;D I like projects that push my limits but this project is up there with the toughest including the swivel breeches. Thank you for the time you spent in documenting this build and sharing it. It just shows that that there is "more than one way to skin a cat" contrary to some opinions. I hope your shotgun performs well and that you let us know how it performs in both function and game getting. ;)

Three years ago I wrote the following to Runastav after he built a sea service pistol from materials he took out of his car (or the neighbor's car....or his kitchen....or wherever !)  I think it bears repeating after this shotgun build as I am again amazed at the steadfast, steady, intuitive skill displayed as you built this shotgun.

Runastav,

You are obviously descended from the great European craftsmen who have been making incredible utilitarian implements, weapons, buildings, and works of art from metal, wood, and stone for twenty centuries before my country even came into being.  I salute you and your wonderful work...and I only wish I could write this to you in Norwegian as well as you can explain your builds in English.

Fantastic work as always Runar! Have you considered to build a copy of maybe the nost beautiful of the norwegian military flintlocks the M1711 short version?

(http://www.kvf.no/guns/forandring/bilder/Tappstusser-Kongsberg-M1711-41-51-Kort-2568-7.jpg)

Sadly none of the original flintlock version are known to exsist but I would think the lock was not much different from other contemporary flintlocks

Runar,
Don't worry about your "bad English". It is MUCH better than the Norwegian most of us CAN'T speak,read or understand.
Do you know a man named Sverre Andre Kvalo in Nordland? I made a 4 screw Alex Henry lock for him a few years ago
and wonder if it ever got used in a long range rifle.

I have been following this thread for a bit and am really wanting to get into building a shotgun. I do have the book "Recreating the double barrel shotgun" and am reading it now. But I noticed that runastav has a full size drawing of a shotgun. Where can I get one of those? are they available?

Hello Runastav,
Really fine work. It is amazing what you can do with a bucket of bolts and scrap steel.
You go to too much work in proofing your barrels.
I load a triple charge of powder and a triple charge of lead, then invite my brother-in-law for a few beers. ::)Then get him to shoot it. :o
If we don't have to go to emergency hospital, the gun is safe  ;D
Happy new year to all!
Fred
