For a farmer with presumably little knowledge of guns or gunsmithing, that’s a pretty good job. Has a trigger, trigger guard, hammer, grips and even a front sight. Look like it shoots .45 Long Colt. Not sure how he loads it. Maybe has a hidden barrel break or does he just muzzle load it?

All a gun needs to work is a barrel with a sealed end to hold the round, and a pin to ignite the primer. Think zip guns. A metal pipe with a sealed up end that had a small rod with a metal spring wrapped around it. Pull the rod and let it go to ignite the primer.

Everything else is to make the gun easier to use, more accurate, more safe, and more durable.
