Anton Zoller’s percussion rifle and the problems of 19th century gunsmiths in Hungary

This episode of Capandball’s time travels will guide you to the 19th century Pest and Buda, Hungary to know the problems of the gunsmiths of the city. While we follow the history of Anton and Matthias Zoller, target gun makers of the era, we will of course shoot one of their rifles to understand how to develop a load for an original percussion rifle.
