If the flask was airtight or close to it it would explode. The main problem with repairing burned guns is they lose the heat treatment. Walkers were made from wrought iron but the frames were case hardened. If it got hot enough to burn the grips off the case hardening would also be gone. Also all the springs would be shot. The screws would most likely twist off when you tried to remove them. I'm not saying it couldn't be done but by the average guy in 1851 it's not likely. The digging a hole(usually under the hearth)is a much better idea.
