Phom 8 Dos Txhais | 32 caliber

Phom 8 Dos Txhais | 32 caliber

From my personal collection is this extremely long antique Hmong flintlock of 8 dos txhais with a full set of nine silver barrel bands. This antique is not of particularly large caliber, but has one of the longest barrels I have ever seen, with a beautiful taper! This phom is as long as I am tall! The phaj leej hauv (lock/action) works spendidly. The stock on this piece is new and made from extremely high grade figured maple—as seen in the photos. This will includes lub tsuam pob, ciab meszeb ntais, and txoj hlua rub tus ncauj qa. Lub tsuam pob is original plaub cuam — gibbon.


This flintlock works very reliably and has been testfired. Recommended maximum load of 50 grains of blackpowder only.


Length of barrel: 57.25 inches (~7.5 dos)

Length overall: 64 inches (~8.5 dos)

Weight of silver bands: 82.86 grams sterling silver (925 fine)

Caliber: 32

Weight: 5 pounds

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.
