    Tennessee Rifle Trigger Guard Question

    Screws are correct for MOST iron mounted rifles. There are a very few exceptions, of course. Study before you chose. The devil is in the details.o_O

    Colt 1851 vs. Pietta

    The Pietta grip has a flared "tail" in order to fit their detachable stock. The Colt and Uberti do not.

    I have read you are not an experienced muzzleloader until... 1. You have loaded with no powder :mad: 2. You have fired a double load 😲 3. You have fired your ramrod down range 😱

    Priming with 3F

    The small pan primers work best with 4F. File an angle on the end of the spout to keep it from clogging with the fouling.

    Steaming a stock

    You're taking it out too soon, leave it much longer. Also apply "wet" options and see what happens.

    Pedersoli Kentucky Pistol Woes

    Stay away from sawdust and epoxy, it will look bad no matter what you use for stain. Always leave a small gap behind the tang to prevent chipping the stock with recoil.
