    Recommend 44 cap and ball revolver

    Having never owned an OLD ARMY i cannot comment on the use of one, HOWEVER having owned a Security Six target model in .357 Mag and a New Model Blackhawk in .357 Mag as well ( to hunt i use .357 Mag Contender loads ) i have to admit a Ruger is almost indestructable. Just a comparrison here. That...

    Recommend 44 cap and ball revolver

    I must agree with nkbj on this one with one exception, the grip. A '51 navy has the best grip i have ever held. If a Pietta you need to get rid of the tail that causes it to kick up. Mike Beliveau can show you how, but the '60 barrel is a work of art. So an 1860 Colt Army with a 1851 Navy Colt...

    Sixty shots at the pistol range today

    Barry Why not. I spent a lot of my younger years around Ed Shilen's barrel shop. His long range targets, one hole, from his machine rests always fascinated me. I for one, being a machinist, would love to see your barrel machine rest and learn more about your process. PM me if you like. DL

    Frankenpistol build

    It is what it is. A touch of your time, talent, and love. Shoot it and enjoy it. Your next build will no doubt be better but, just like your first child, it will always be your favorite. Got a flint lock pistol i am piecing together and one day i shall return to working on it again. DL :ghostly:

    who all uses peeps on their percussion guns.

    Semper Fi brother.

    who all uses peeps on their percussion guns.

    That reason is because it is easier to teach some one to shoot using them. Line up the front sight on target, your eye on the rear sight will center itself and you have a good sight picture. Easy for left hand or right hand shooting. This is not modern, been around for centuries.

    There is no problem brother, least not from me. I have no weapon that is HC or PC in anyway. I mod my stuff for ME. Peeps work good for targets. Ghost sights work good for hunting, but at my age I prefer scopes for hunting. To me just more ethical. DL

    Tuning Open Top Replicas

    Guys i read responses about driving in the wedge, please do not drive the wedge in with a hammer. All you are doing is damaging the wedge and slot. Thumb pressure and maybe a light tap. If it loosens during your shooting session then press back in with thumb. Repeated driving in and driving out...
