Inherited Chassepot (Black Powder Cartridge)

If you look down the post of paper cartridges, you will see my brief description on one way to make cartridges. Finding the overall length is crucial, too short and the cartridge will just get pushed forward in the chamber, too long and you will either not be able to close the bolt or will tear the cartridge when you do close it. A chamber cast should do the trick.

In Europe we have standard 18mm plumbing washers which are just right for replacing the old ones. On the left is the original, one the right is the new one.


Give me iron, steel and wood! Tupperware guns are for losers!
