    Any body use aqua fortis on a plain red maple stock?

    Getting close to finishing a trade gun, I know most were walnut, but have had this stock a while and decided to use it. I have used aqua fortis in the past, scary stuff to use, but seems to penetrate deeper than other stains. The regular stains seem to wear in the wrist and forearm area, have...

    touch hole liner size

    Getting ready to inlet a col virg. lock from jim chambers, .54 cal. smooth bore, oct. to round, 1 inch across the flats at breech. Would I be ok with a 1/4'' white lightning liner? Would I be wise to allow enough room in front of the breech for a 5/16 inch liner, just in case? Or just go with...

    ram rod hole

    Drilled a ram rod hole today, was shooting for 1/8 to 3/16inch web at the breech, ended up about .300, guess I will have to live with it, pretty much centered under barrel, good thing is, should be plenty room for front lock screw. I checked and double checked my measurements, oh well, could be...

    Modern versus flintlock

    I retired a few months ago, the boys and dealership got me a Henry single shot 20 gage, took it out a few times hunting, just not the same as a flintlock smooth bore or rifle, really enjoy my modern guns, (when I shoot them) just not the same as the flintlocks, seems I pay more attention, move...

    Measuring group size?

    OK, How do you measure group size? Shooting at a black 3.75 in. bull, the farthest hole is 1.50 in from 10x, would that be a 1.50 in. group, or do I measure from the 2 farthest holes, which would be a little over 3 in.? 5 shot group. Probably a dumb question. I guess I would call it 3 in. group...

    FOR SALE set triggers

    I have what I think is called double set single phase triggers. The trigger has to be set by pulling the rear trigger then the front is pulled to fire the gun. Looks like the hammer has to be pulled back to set this trigger, I don't think these triggers have a place on a hunting gun, would guess...

    best group at 100 yards

    Some say they are not happy unless they get 1 ragged hole at 100. I would guess off a rest? Any way, I am not calling them a liar, but would like to see it. I have been around some very good offhand shooters, and no way would they be able to keep all shots touching at even 50 yards. I might get...
