Flintlock Muskets & Rifles

The flintlock design quite literally revolutionized firearms. The first true flintlock firearm was made for King Louis XIII of France in 1610, and they remained in use as a popular and dominant firearm until the mid-19th century. Given such a long running span of use, the selection of Flintlock muskets and rifles offered at Dark Knight Armoury is quite broad indeed. Flintlock, in general, is a catch-all term that typically applies to any firearm that makes use of the flintlock mechanism. This mechanism utilizes a piece of flint, which strikes a plate, creating a spark. This spark ignites a priming charge, which ignites a powder charge in the barrel. The ignited powder charge is then what propels a projectable out of the firearm barrel. The design was not entirely without its drawbacks, but it was the most efficient style of firearm in the day, and it remained in use because of its effectiveness. We offer both flintlock muskets and rifles, with the difference between the two being that a rifle barrel has rifling, while the musket barrel is smooth-bored. They range over a variety of periods, including such classic examples as the British Brown Bess and the Kentucky Rifle, as well as genuine pirate weapons like blunderbuss muskets and even rifles that are modeled after the firearm of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte himself! Everyone one of our rifles and muskets offered are firearm replicas only. This means that while each one features the look and feel of a real firearm, complete with moving parts, they are replicas only and cannot be converted into firing weapons. If you have got it in your head to own a historic rifle, either from the days of the British Empire or from Emperor Napoleons conquests, then you should consider checking out the flintlock muskets and rifles section at Dark Knight Armoury. Give it a little look and you will find a few great old rifle replicas and musket models that are just begging to be held, displayed, and showed off.

"To start off I would just like to say... I am VERY satisfied with my purchase. I am Very Impressed with the quality of the metal when it arrived. For the price I doubt I could find better. As for the shipping and arrival.. Very timely, took a week to the day with just standard shipping and in my opinion is a very solid process. I have waited up to 2 months for swords in the past with other websites. The Chainmail shirt I ordered was heavy and well fitted, Which for not crafting to measurements I would say was very lucky or excellent craftsmanship to make the chain mail as well fitting as it is. All around I would give you 10 out of 10. I will definitely be using your site from now on for all my medieval needs. "
