Tirailleurs, muskets, Napoleonic wars – a new Capandball film series

I am pretty sure that we all love flintlock muskets. Not because they are the most accurate weapons, but because they are just extreme fun to shoot.

The Capandball YouTube cahnnel just started a series about the muskets of the Napoleonic wars, concentrating on the French 1777 and the Austrian 1798 muskets. And I am pretty sure that our muskets will have a part in this project…

So if you are interested in Napoleonic times musketry and firearms history, you’ll enjoy this series.

    Fine stuff Davide. You´re right. Flintlocks are really funny. Load, reload, etc… Specially if it´s a Pedersoli!! : ))
    Quid pro quo.
    I leave you here information about an higly recommedable book on weapons, Light Infantry and the stuff that I had discovered this year.
    In brief: it´s a permanent exhibition, organized as a book, that tells the story of the Hundred Days and Waterloo using 70 different images of military figurines, maps, weapons (includes a 1814, briquet, Klingenthal!!), documents, etc…
    The title is “Seventy images for hundred days”. The short way to find it, I think so, it´s Amazon.

    See you.
