I'm like some of the others, I've been watching this from the start but haven't commented. I think it's an awesome gun, I enjoyed watching the amount of craftsmanship and pure problem solving that went into the creation of this gun. I'm anxious to see it with the wood and metal finishes completed. Just beautiful. Thanks.

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?





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!
