All the locks of our flintlock pistols and muskets are removed and checked from the inside as well as the outside for good function.  The frizzens are case hardened to ensure a nice spark and the breech is drilled with a 3/32" vent hole. 


As a value added service we will "breakdown" the lock, polish and harden certain internal components to speed lock performance and reliability.  This added service is $50.00



India flintlock musket and pistols are not proofed by the country of manufacture nor is there a U.S. standard for muzzle loaders to proof by.

We do offer a test firing service using a double black powder charge and a double ball load.  This is an additional service and you can read more about it on the Q & A page.


We warranty our locks for one year parts and labor.  Abuse of the lock (heavy rust and amateur tinkering) will void the warranty.  All you need to do is get it here.  Be sure to contact us for instructions before you send it in.


If you are not happy with your purchase you can return it postmarked within seven days of the date you received it for a refund of the purchase price of the item.  Shipping costs are not refunded.


Shipping is via USPS Priority to the lower 48 states but if you need other services or shipping to other locations please feel free to ask and we will calculate your request.


At this time we accept checks and money orders for musket and pistol purchases.  We will accept payments through PayPal for gun smith services and other accessory items only.  Accessory items include things like bayonets, powder horns, gun socks, etc. which are in compliance with PayPal acceptable use policies.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

The wheel lock, flintlock and percussion pistol was widely used among military troops and civilians for centuries.  Cavalry pistols for horsemen, Holster pistols for officers, Naval pistols during close range use by privateers and the like, and Civilian pistols common for those who lived in cities or traveled needing personal protection.


The blunderbuss was a short muzzle loading firearm with a barrel typically less than two feet in length.  Becoming more common around the 1600's and gaining popularity with travel due to highway robbery in the 1700's.  For the military they became useful to clear a deck when boarding another ship but also were used by infantry for sentry duty.


Our flintlock pistols and blunderbuss are LIVE FIRING historical reproductions for shooting or the living historians portraying a specific person, place and time.
