Well this is my channel and these are my impressions about shooting old and repro blackpowder and cartridge guns. You will find target shooting, hunting, reloading and military history related videos here starring pre 1945 firearms. Since I was a little child I knew I want to be a history teacher. In fact I graduated as one. Later I studied military sciences on university level, and now I am doing my phd in firearms history while I teach military history at the university. That's my life, my hobby. I hope you'll enjoy my videos as much I enjoyed making them. Greetings form Hungary, the land of good wines and beautiful women. Oh yes, and please forgive my Hunglish. ;)

I had a chance to visit the Sabatti factory in Gardone, Italy. This company is one of the very few who manufacture barrels with cold forging method. This method is capable for manufacturing extremely durable barrels with very accurate dimensions. The technology was invented in Germany/Austria just before WW2, but it is still one of the best methods for making an accurate rifling and bore. Enjoy the trip!
Forging a gun barrel

This is my first attempt at forging a gun barrel as a colonial gunsmith would have. It's forged from a section of a wrought iron tire off a wooden wagon wheel. This effort is only the first couple steps for forging a barrel. Additional steps include forging (and filing) the barrel to an octagon shape, drilling the center hole larger, then reaming it to a final bore size, putting in the spirals, adding a breech plug and forging and adding the sights and hardware to mount the barrel in the stock. I may follow up with additional...

Homemade Rifling Attachment for Lathe (Part 1)

----PART 2: ---- Due to concerns over the rifling in my previous barrel (which were justified) I will be building a rifling attachment for my lathe. This is the first part, the second part will hopefully be the end but this may become a three part series. Next time we will make the rifling tool and finish the tail stock mount, then do some actual rifling

Traditional Cooper - George Smithwick - History and how to make a wooden bucket

George Smithwick is a sixth generation cooper who makes traditional wooden buckets and barrels. He is continuing a family tradition that began in the 18th century in Ireland. George talks to us about what a Cooper is, some history of the trade, tools he uses, and the step-by-step process of making a wooden bucket. Edward Washington and Jimmy Murray from the Sydney Living Museums' Programs team flew down to catch up with George to see if he could help with making us some new buckets and he was happy to show us how he worked; using tools, techniques and practises that...

Before You Buy A M4 or AR-15 Know Your Facts

How long have I been around this platform? This will help: Many companies selling M4 and AR variants today try to sell a carbine or rifle that may be suitable for plinking cans, shooting gophers etc. but will not hold up to the standards required for hard use and long life with a high round count. Few companies meet the criteria lined out in the TDP of which Colt and FN abide. Bravo Company is one of the very few companies producing carbines and rifles that meet this standard. Others are Daniel Defense, LMT,...

15 Incredibly RARE and UNIQUE weapons OF ALL TIME

Subscribe ► For copyright issues please contact us at: Centuries of refinement have given the arms industry the chance to define what does and doesn’t work as a weapon. Most of the world’s major militaries now use similar weapons because they know what works and what doesn’t. If you have weapons for home protection, chances are the weapons you keep at home are similar to your neighbors. Because so many weapons are now standardized, we rarely see anything that breaks from the norm. That’s what makes the incredibly rare and unique weapons on this list so special. You won’t find...

Backyard RAILGUN: Field Testing the 250 lb Electric Gun, 27,000 Joule (max)

This is the first test of the railgun. Launches at 27,000 joules are shown in my other videos with improved cable connections. The newly built railgun is field tested at 20,500 joules. It is the first mobile, shoulder mounted railgun. *****DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME***** Notes: A railgun uses current to generate extreme magnetic fields that propel a conductive projectile to high speeds (iron is a poor conductor and therefore unsuitable). Aluminum has been the universal projectile choice for its low melting point, high boiling point, low mass, and high conductance. This was a fairly successful test- the clamps blew off 15...
