I bought this American percussion picket rifle a few months ago to repair it for my son. It took a lot of work to make it shoot again. Although it is a poor boys rifle, it tells a lot about the early years of the industrialization of gun making in the United States. Cast steel, gain twist, taper bore, choke bore. If you want know more about these terms, this is your video.

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. 😉
