Phom 5 Dos | 40 Caliber

Phom 5 Dos | 40 Caliber

Antique Hmong firearm of 5 dos. Short but very thick and heavy octagonal barrel (essentially a "bull barrel"), making it very heavy for its size—this is basically as short as phom Hmoob will get; to find one that is shorter is very rare! Barrel and lock (phaj leej hauv) are original. 9 beautifully fitted antiqued barrel bands. The stock on this antique has been replaced: it is made with gancalo alves, also known as tigerwood—a very hard and beautifully grained wood. 


Barrel and lock are in great working condition; this flintlock works relaiably and has been testfired. Recommended maximum load of 60 grains of blackpowder only. 


Length of barrel: 33 inches (~4 dos)

Length overall: 39.625 inches (~4.5 dos)

Caliber: 40

Weight: 3 lbs. 11.4 oz.


As with all antiques we sell, pictures show the actual item you will receive—there is only one available.


Flintlocks are considered "Antique Firearms," and not "Guns," by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and under the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968, and thus are federally unregulated. Therefore, you do not need any paperwork nor background checks for purchase. However, this does NOT apply in the jurisdictions of New Jersey, Illinois, Washington D.C. and New York City, where flintlocks are, per local law, considered "Guns" and thus must be registered. Therefore, we cannot ship to you if you live in New Jersey, Illinois, Washington D.C. or NYC—any orders to a home address in these jurisdictions will automatically be cancelled and refunded. As a disclaimer, please check your local ordinances and statutes to ensure compliance with all laws. We do not sell outside of the United States—all international orders will be automatically cancelled and refunded.
