I made a series of short videos to show you the difference between the blackpowder ignition systems. They are all filmed with 400 frame per sec and slowed to 50%. The percussion lock used a chemical ignition system. The mercury fulminate was placed in a small brass cup. The hammer hit this cap, and ignited the priming compound. The result was a faster, stronger and weather proof ignintion. Check that as the hammer falls, the gun fires immediately.
Well this is my channel and these are my impressions about shooting old and repro blackpowder and cartridge guns. You will find target shooting, hunting, reloading and military history related videos here starring pre 1945 firearms. Since I was a little child I knew I want to be a history teacher. In fact I graduated as one. Later I studied military sciences on university level, and now I am doing my phd in firearms history while I teach military history at the university. That’s my life, my hobby. I hope you’ll enjoy my videos as much I enjoyed making them. Greetings form Hungary, the land of good wines and beautiful women. Oh yes, and please forgive my Hunglish. 😉
