These were another gift I made for Christmas and wanted to post after they were opened as gifts. My daughter actually works on tall ships (old ships). She volunteers on a ship in the Seattle area (Lady Washington if you would like to see it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Washington
Imagine working 60-70 feet in the air on a moving ship to work on the sales. It was really incredible to hear she was doing this.
Anyway she also publishes an online comic about pirates as well and has been working on a pirate costume. So I decided to make her some simple flintlock pistols. The picture of three shows the prototypes and the final hard wood version. I have her the second to last mdf version (ship mate’s gun) and the hard wood version (captain’s gun). Both of them are working multi-shot (not period accurate) rubber band guns and can be seen in the video.
The materials are all proof grade and it was my first attempt to create inlays for the handles. Sadly as so many of my projects often do, there were LOTS of prints that didn’t make the picture and working out how to get the triggers to work and the rubber bands to release was a bit tricky, but I am really happy with how they came out and how happy she was to get them.
