Forging a Flintlock Rifle Barrel with Jon Laubauch


Add to Cart:
Features the man who has forged more gun barrel tubes than any man living today. Jon Laubach worked many years at Colonial Williamsburg & willingly shares his experiences in becoming a real 18th century gunsmith. Assisted by his son Christopher & Mike Miller, Jon teaches how to forge a 45” long tapered & flared gun barrel tube from wrought iron on a coal fired forge. Includes bonus material on forging a breech-plug blank & making traditional boring bits. Most gun builders will never forge their own barrel, but want to know how it was done, as do many re-enactors. Jon presents in close detail the required skills & techniques.
