[ERROR] No.19388386 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

What modern gun is the closest to a classic flintlock pistol and/or musket?

I ask because I'd like to make the modern equivalent of this into my next character.

Uses "modern" guns, but paid out the ass to have them modeled to more closely resemble old weapons. Likewise, wears the outfit, but with modern body armor -- like, appropriately colored dragonskin.

You can probably guess he's a bit eccentric.

>> No.19388416

there's world championships still at shooting flintlocks, lived next to one for a while.

>> No.19388423

Revolvers are the only old-style handheld weapons that are still in use. They have an actual hammer, rather than a firing pin, and they don't have a large amount of complex machinery to move a bolt around. They're simple but elegant, which seems like what you're going for.

>> No.19388443

look up "muzzle loaders" or "blackpowder" and you'll see some clubs, and dealers that supply them.

>> No.19388489

I think he's after something a little more modern, guys.

Try this, OP.

>> No.19388511

A shotgun that fires slugs could be a decent approximation of a flintlock smoothbore, though that's obviously not in the handgun department. You still get the benefit of the aesthetic, though, and you reap the rewards of that smooth, smooth absence of rifling.

>> No.19388523


If I was doing this, I'd have a gold inlayed and engraved double-barrel sawed-off. Or maybe two.

This would be a purely cinematic character. IRL this is a terrible weapon. Hard to deny the "cool factor" of wielding a brace of these, or maybe using one in the off-hand while buckling your swash with a rapier, small-sword or saber.

This is what you're looking for OP. You're using practical, effective guns without something as dumb as "looks like a flintlock, works like a modern firearm" and you have a specific look that hearkens to olden times.

What rewards?

It's a joke. There's no benefit whatsoever to using smoothbore, except for being easier to manufacture.

Actually, there ARE rifled shotguns specifically for the purpose of firing slugs.

Why is that dumb?

Jealous because you didn't think of it first?

I think smooth-bore lets the bullet go a tiny bit faster.

>> No.19388865


>> No.19388881


Then why do modern tanks use smooth-bore? I doubt 'It's cheaper' is the reason.

>> No.19388908

Fin-stabilized rounds are more stable out of a smoothbore barrel and smoothbore suffers less wear over time.

>> No.19388909

it's like the shotgun example. multiple types of slugs

>> No.19388912

There's no reason to actually use rifling on a tank.

>> No.19388936


Check wikipedia. Apparently projectiles used in modern artillery are too long for rifling to be effective.

>> No.19388962


Most rounds those guns shoot are fin-stabalized. The only real difference is what those fins attach too.

>> No.19388972

I think he's referring to the fact that the aesthetic changes would make the weapon less effective in real life, and there is no point to wanting a more obvious, less wieldy weapon.

Although his pointing out ocelot as using an effective weapon is a little off. It is a very effective weapon, but not nearly as reliable as modern weapons. It still makes more sense than what you are trying to do, which I agree is kinda dumb.

>> No.19388986

Anything break action with an external hammer. With slugs. Hollowpoint slugs. One or two shots before reload, big projectiles and huge wounds. Should do the trick.

Or just have him use an actual modern muzzleloader. Though that would be a pain in the arse and gimp him horribly.

>> No.19389049

>not as reliable

Nigger what Revolvers are THE most reliable firearm.

>> No.19389080

Ocelot uses a Colt SAA, which were cap and ball.
Cap and ball firearms are less reliable than modern firearms.

>> No.19389175

Wouldn't that mean that it would take him way longer to reload than it does?

>> No.19389263


Minor nitpick:

The Colt Single-Action Army (aka, the SAA, the M1873 or the Peacemaker) is a cartridge revolver.

You are probably thinking of the Colt 1860 Army. That was cap-and-ball.

Wait, you're right.

Since this is a half-assed /k/ /tg/ crossover thread, I wanted to ask something that I'm more comfortable bringing up here than on /k/...

Would it be possible to fit a revolver chamber to something like this sawed-off shotgun?

I mean I know that's impractical, a bad idea, etc., but assuming someone had the gunsmithing talent (or even had to just build the gun from the ground up), COULD it be done? Be made functional, I mean?

I'm not asking about some dinky .410 revolver, but a full on 12-gauge revolver.

I'd photoshop a mock-up of what I'm asking with this, but I have no photoshop and no actual photoshopping skills.

>> No.19389388

yes, it's not hard

>> No.19389391


>> No.19389402

It'd be possible to make a shotgun feed from a cylinder, maybe even a double barrel, but it'd be impractically huge.

The cylinder or the overall weapon?

Both, although that was mostly referring to doing it with a double barrel.

No, but you could just design a revolver shotgun from scratch. Or use an existing revolver design and add wooden furnature. Examples:

Assuming it was a single-barrelled shotgun, how big would the cylinder have to be?

There is a triple barrel revolver. I don't know if it's functional or not though.

>> No.19389495

Because HEAT doesn't like to be spinning, and neither does apfsds rounds. You don't seriously think tank guns are just firing giant bullets, right? Because they don't. That would be laughably ineffective.

I know.

Look at 20 round drums for saiga shotguns. Thats how big the cylinder would have to be (for 20 round cylinders, of course. Were there fewer shells the cylinder would get smaller and smaller.)

a shotgun shell is about 18.5 mms thick, just scale up whatever revolver you want to base it on. most .357 revolvers would need a cylinder twice the size to hold the same number of shotgun shells.

Yes. As a matter of fact, someone (I can't remember who, but it was an established firearm company...) designed a 12-guage version of the Taurus Judge, but the ATF classified it as a short-barreled shotgun/destructive device, so they couldn't sell them to the general public. Go check The Firearms Blog for it.
