In the early 80’s, I built a double barrel shotgun, a .45 cal Kentucky rifle, and a couple of .45 cal pistols from CVA (Connecticut Valley Arms) kits. They all use percussion caps, but I think that you could also get flintlocks.

They were all fun to build and shoot, and I remember wondering how anyone ever managed to fight a war with firing rates of three rounds per minute.

I think that CVA is still around.
