Cap and Ball Takes a Close Look at the Historical Augustin Tube Lock Pistol

What exactly is a Augustin Tube Lock Pistol?

Our YouTube friend capandball is here to tell us all about this unique weapon.

Watch this video and see Cap and Ball examine and shoot a historic Augustin Tube Lock Pistol.

The Augustin Tube Lock Pistol is from the first part of the 19th century. What can an army do with the old obsolete flintlock firearms of the day? Well, turning it into an Augustin Tube Lock firearm was one answer.

Some old flintlock weapons were retrofitted to use a percussion tube. These tubes can actually be made at home from a beer can as capandball shows on this video.

This historic Augustin Tube Lock Pistol was an important step in future firearms design.
