Paintball flintlock

Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.



Old video:
Flintlock Pistol - Chrono + Test - YouTube





Original build. Really bulky, but worked.

Cut from a solid piece of maple, done with hand tools. Yes this was done almost completely with files, chisels, and knives. I wanted to do this as realistic as possible (though using my CNC was tempting at times). I didn't like the darker stain I had on first and it needed to be slimmed down quite a bit to be comfortable anyways.

Besides the goblin shells what else did you use? Was it pretty easy to get the balls up to a good velocity? I know the goblins had a problem.

Love it! Smoke and noise!

I would use that as my main, but then again I am a bit nuts.

A large chunk of maple, misc chunks of aluminum, and a lot of hand tools.

The barrel is just the right length for the goblin cartridges to keep it in the 280-295 range depending on what kind of paint I use. I have not had issues with the giblin cartridge.

I plan on inlaying thin brass into it later once the lock is finished. The lock will actually be the safety for the marker as it will push a panel between the firing pin and the goblin cartridge.

It is loud as heck in person. I need another 5pack of cartridges before I would be comfortable running it as my main though. I currently only have 6.

Awesome idea though! So do you load the entire goblin shell down the barrel? how does this work?

You should make two of these, and then challenge someone to a good ol' fashioned gentleman's duel.
