    freedom from the supply chain
    Are you trying to tell me you know how to make gunflints? Or do you think any rock off the ground will work?

    priming
    Are you planning on making your own batteries or piezo system?

      Coil discharge would probably be the way to go as far as home fabrication.
      That's what the panzerschreck used.

        Yeah, this shit isn't even as complicated as some people make it out to be. Hell, indians learned how to ride horses by watching the white man. And when they got their hands on firearms for the first time, even they figured out how to make ammo for themselves. I'm sure a few braves lost hands until they figured shit out. Some of the Indian owned firearms are pretty wild how they modified them to work with no supply chain

        How many have you made that worked? Or is this a case of virgins discussing sex again?

      It is functionally impossible to reduce whites past the 1800s.
      Fire is not hard to make.

      I've been thinking of putting together a pipe blunderbuss with a piezo ignition system from a lighter.

        Sounds like a fun project, but with commercial pipe and lighter piezos you're very much dependent on the supply chain.

      its pretty easy to just stockpile some flints, just a couple will last you years, and if all else fails and you cant find a single good shaped flint in that time span you can just stick a lit matchcord in the hammer and use it like a matchlock
      not saying its reliable, but better than not having a gun

        Or Cheat and glue a ferrocerium to the striker and put in a broken bit of a file. ( talking make it work mad max style here )

      Electrical firing mechanisms are too easily converted to automatics.

      Hence why you hardly ever see them used in manufacturing.

      You already have two shares, you just forgot you stashed them in your torso.

    This popped up in my mind earlier this month too anon, exactly for the reasons you stated. People in the past have been able to do it, you'd just need to be extremely specialized in order to not create a stockbomb.

    Why are caps considered hard to make? Lots of stuff would work. Just look up what they filled percussion caps with in the 1800s and do that.

      Some cannon channel where they pulled a string to set off napoleon 6 pounders mentioned antimony trisulfide and chlorate. Not sure how they made chlorate in the 1800s, did they use the 'lectricity? but they were cleverer than you might guess. Not sure if that is what they used in caps. Matches have the chlorate ( and the striker has P for armstrongs mixture ) Antimony is used to harden lead bullets.

    breach loading > repeating
    no matter what you'll need cartridges for a reliable repeater, and if you dont itll just be slower than a normal muzzleloader
    thats why i think the best option that doesnt use cartridges is breachloaders like the sharps rifle, where instead of taking brass cartridges, you load in a bullet and powder packed together in paper, and raising the breach cuts off the back of the paper exposing the powder
    its just a little slower than single shot cartridge rifles but its way faster than a muzzleloader

    slightly unrelated to the thread, but would flintlocks be faster to load than percussion (implying both are muzzleloaders and you use paper cartridges)
    in a percussion you have to go through more motions than a flintlock, you have to take the cartridge out of the pouch, tear and load the cartidge, then fish for a cap out of the other pouch, then prime, and you're ready to shoot
    with a flintlock you just grab the cartridge, tear, and prime, then load the cartridge, and its ready to fire
    basically i'm saying that being able to just use a cartridge to fire the gun instead of a cartridge and a cap seems faster, given that you have enough training with a flintlock to instictively know how much powder to pour into the pan instead of spending a few seconds measuring it

    Isn't a superimposed flintlock, while heavier, more reliable?
