Blackpowdermag.com and Olympus Industrial bring you more flintlock videos. The frame rate is 5000 fps.
This page will be a work in progress but the videos should work. The taping was done at Gun Makers’ Hall during the Spring Nationals at Friendship. Monday June 15th was the big day. We taped 47 locks with the help of Norman Baumgartner from Olympus Industrial. Thanks Norm for all you do for us.
All the videos we taped will eventually be included here, but for the short term we will up load a sample. There will be chances to study this collection with new playback software, allowing more new knowledge.
