    The renaissance wax is good for both metal and wood. Use rig inside the bore, wax on the outside. Have done it this way for years with no rust.

    TVM Woes! :(

    Even if everything else was alright, using the wrong barrel is an instant send back. Also there should be no charge to you as it is clearly there fault. Any good company would certainly offer a refund or replacement.

    TVM Woes! :(

    I was told by a well known gun stocker at friendship many years ago, to use a wood screw for the tang screw. His reasoning was why drill completely through the weakest part of the gun (wrist) if you don't have to. It wasn't either of the tvm boys.

    Haven't been there in 10 or more years. Was wondering if commercial row is still as good as before? Heard overall it's much smaller than it used to be.

    Homer Dangler used to sell a bottle of oil which he applied to finished guns both wood and metal. Used it in dry winter months. I used my last bottle. Anyone know what is comparable. Haven't seen any for sale in years.

    Gun marked Graves, Pontiac, MI?

    The barrel is marked Pontiac only, not MI. The seller said it was made in MI. Have no idea if he really knows or not.

    Gun marked Graves, Pontiac, MI?

    The gun is a late style 1/2 stock percussion, with set triggers. The barrel is marked as far as I can tell-A.A. Graves. The seller said it was made in Pontiac, MI about 1860. Any one herd of this gunsmith? I tried a search and didn't find anything. Thanks
