The making of a rifle

Recommended Posts

I never thought that the barrel would have been folded from a flat lump. For obvious reasons I thought that a drilled rod would have been used. A real eye opener into skills that are now all but forgotten.

I think this was the way military muskets such as the Brown Bess were made, folded over a mandril and forge welded.

It is now clear what the difference between a Registered Firearm Dealer and a Gunsmith is.

Fortunately I have one of the countries finest gunsmiths just up the road.


Superb piece of film.
