    .45s?

    My father started building BP rifles in the late 1950's. He made his last one shortly before his death in 2005. The vast majority were in .45. He considered it the best all around caliber. As a matter of fact, when I showed up with a .50 cal in my early 20's he asked if I was going to take...

    I'm interested in seeing it. You can send pics to jhansen1951@gmail.com. In answer to your message, the drop at comb is about 1 1/2" and at heel 3 1/4". According to my bathroom scale it weighs 5 lbs.

    Indian Muskets

    Seventeen pages of entries in this thread running the spectrum from "they're all dangerous junk" to "they are okay". I've been a BP shooter for 60 years and a full-time gunsmith who retired in 2007. My true love has always been traditional flintlock rifles but about 7 years ago I was reading...
