Swords are all nice and fancy, but how about those times when you do not want to get near the danger and want a way to still neutralise said danger?
The obvious answer is ranged weaponry, which in our case will be flintlock weapons.
However, a full flintlock mechanism would take a lot of work, so for the sake of time (and my sanity) I looked for simpler alternatives and what I found was percussion locks:
While they’re not the simplest, half of the mechanism (the “nipple” and cap) is way simpler.
On to the actual weapons I need:
These should be the two only variants I’ll need. More to come if I see the need for more.
The upside in terms of efficiency is that making one will speed up the process of the other, since I could possibly take the first and make the necessary modifications to turn it into the other. This allows me to pay more attention to the details than otherwise.
