    I just finished building this replica black powder pistol, it`s 1500 tech.
    It uses a rope that burned on the end and placed in the serpentine and when lowered into the primed pan it would ignite the charge in the barrel.

    Man, that is craftsmanship.

    Those of you that don't know the skill required in this, take my word for it. This takes skill and craftsmanship.

    Beautiful work, ITW! :tiphat:
