Confirm Jukar is replica


May 9, 2012, 02:41 PM
I have a coworker who found an old Jukar handgun in her attic. I'm pretty sure it's a replica, but she is not so convinced. All it says on the barrel is Jukar 0001608 Spain. From what she found online the replicas say 'blackpowder only', but this one doesn't, so she's hoping it's worth something. I can't post photos until this evening, but what else can confirm that it's a replica?

Yep, they were Spanish imports when blackpowder shooting started to get popular here in the 1960s and 1970s. Dixie Gun Works and Navy Arms sold a lot of them. They were a lot cheaper than the Italian reproductions. I've still got a single shot .45 pistol I made from a Dixie Jukar kit.

Might be worth a hundred bucks.
Jukar only made muzzle loaders from yabout 1970 on

If it's a Jukar, it's a replica.
There's the conformation.

I also have a Jukar made in Spain that I made from a kit, around 1972, It's a Kentucky .45 pistol. Nice looking arm, though it is still a replica.;)

I'm looking for a place to buy parts for this black power. Anyone have any info.

eBay will sometimes have used parts like locks and such that come off guns that have been parted out. may have replacement drums, as could
Deer Creek Products of Waldron, Indiana (765-525-6181) may also be able to help you out.
It can take some hunting to find parts for old discontinued guns like these.
Don't give up, a lot of hard to find parts do show up on eBay over time under the category "Sporting Goods > Outdoor Sports > Hunting > Vintage > Black Powder".
Gunbroker doesn't usually have as many muzzle loading parts listed but you never know. :)

A friend owns a bar/cafe and hanging over the downstairs bar there is a Kentucky rifle that came with the place.He would state that he was going to retire on what it was probably worth.Finally one night i climbed up and got it down,gave it one look,and hung it back up.I told him most Kentucky's didn't come by way of Spain,it was a CVA kit rifle,and not that well put together.
