The end of my range rod has a flat slightly concave end, great for ramming a patched ball the tip on my ramrod is slightly rounded. Both will grab and hold a cleaning patch but the edges of the range rod if I use it with a cleaning patch will jam in the bottom half inch of the breech and is very...
I am concerned, I remove the “clean out” screw each time I clean my TC Seneca and patriot and really want some hard info as to whether I should or shouldn’t do this. Can anyone point to some authorities information or a link
Just target. I shoot a Thompson Centre .36 cal Seneca in precision events at Tuggerah Lakes Pistol Club. ML’s are the only rifles that may be shot at the club. We shoot at the standard 25yd pistol target. I also shoot my TC patriot in .45 cal and my Le Page .31 cal pistols there in...
Yup, I cast round ball in 301, 308 and 310 cal and bullets for my 45 cal bp Cartridge rifles in 458 cal. I do it in my back yard using gas and casting pot and shroud made by Northern Smelters in Qld. Pure lead for the RB and 20-1 tin for the bullets.. Gary
For me it’s my Seneca .36 for which after 3 years I found a .45 barrel also have the NOS peep sight and Seneca tool still in their wrapping. Also a patriot in .45. I would like to find a patriot in .36 but they are rarer than Alligator fur in these parts.
Way too many cheap and nasty BP guns are available here but good quality guns fetch a premium, case in point, when available TC patriots regularly fetch over $1000, the trouble is finding them. What? were Maori muskets doing in Perth?
Congratulations, you have/ had a TC Seneca in what appears to be very good condition. As stated probably in .45 with a .32 Cherokee barrel both should shoot very well. I absolutely love my .36 Seneca also with a spare .45 barrel it’s a tack driver I think you sold it way to cheap. I value my set...
The TC Seneca was imho the best ML rifle ever made. I will never sell mine. Judging what I read about the numbers of people wanting one and unable to find one a company reproducing them again ought to do well. Come on Pedersoli!!
I agree with Grimord, a Marbles or Lyman peep sight works well with old eyes. I have a TC Seneca with .36 and .45 barrels and the optional TC tang sight which greatly lengthens the sight radius and improves results
