Can someone help me with creating my own musket?
I'm creating a homemade (backyard) smoothbore musket. I decided to place a matchlock mechanism on it but I'm having a little trouble. I've already made the weapon without the mechanism and tested it with a manual ignition system and it works fine. I need some information on fine powder that will be easily ignited by the match, pan/pan cover and how to attach it to the barrel, a match that will stay lit, and a mold for .70 cal lead ball. Right now i'm shooting rocks and pebbles.
