Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Compared to the official musket this has more than 3 times the range, identical damage, 1/5 of the cost, and the reload property instead of loading.

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

(Part of the ongoing "fantasy firearms" project to make a variety of firearms, balanced and flavored to fit within a standard D&D setting)

A simple flintlock rifle. Originally invented by gnomes, who discovered that certain easy to obtain alchemic ingredients could fire small lead ammunition with equivalent force to a crossbow bolt. It was the precursor to later designed flintlock pistols.

Variants were made with a simple blade attached, to reduce the danger of fighting a foe in melee combat, though it's been known to make the gun somewhat more unwieldy.
