Making the repro of the original flask of the Hall breech loading flintlock rifle – Part I.

Let me guide you through the process of making the working reproduction of the original combination flask of the Model 1819 Hall breech loading flintlock rifle. These flasks were in use until the 1840s when they were replaced by the M1841 riflemen accoutrements. They dispensed both powder and the balls. A unique design and a very rare collectors item.
