Phom 4 Dos Txhais (5+ dos total) | 39 Caliber

Antique Hmong firearm of 4 dos txhais—measuring only the barrel. Circa 1900. Five (5) thi phom look to be made of silver. Three (3) thi phom are brass alloys—one of these new. Looks to possibly be missing one thi—where there is unusual spacing between the other thi, seen in photos. Replacement thi can be made upon request Tsuam pob is newly made from rabbit fur. The tip of the wooden stock is chipped, and the back which connects to the breech of the barrel is short–about 1 inch–this part has been filled in with a wooden spacer, which can be physically connected to the stock upon request. Any inquries will be answered via email or social media channels.

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.
