    New Pietta"s cap size

    I have 2 new Pietta's (1851 & 1860) that #10 caps won't even go on and #11's fit loose. What's up? Both caps are CCI"s.

    If you just ordered a pietta

    Take the loading lever apart and debur it before you use it, or you will end up like me.

    Finally shot the Kibler

    I’ve had this .40 completed for a while now and just took the time to shoot it. It never failed to fire even though the fouling was turning to soup with all the humidity. It patterned well but a little low so I filed the sight and brought it up. I’ve got a .32 barrel ready to put on and I hope...

    Muzzle decorations

    I'm finishing a .32 barrel for my SMR and was considering putting some dimples on the end of the muzzle. Would it be as simple as using a center punch? Post up some pics of what y'all have done.

    Revolver timing

    I watched a video of a guy who said his colt was out of time because the bolt didn't pop up into the slot in the cylinder the instant the hammer reached the full cock detent in the sear. Is that what being in time means? Seems like a lot to ask of this old design.

    1858 New Army

    Picked one up this weekend and can't see a brand name on it anywhere. It's imported by Dixie Gun Works. I would like to know the maker and age. Can I tell that by the serial number?

    Bifocal safety glasses

    They make these with the bifocal on top or bottom of the lens. I'm thinking about ordering a pair so I can see my iron sights, but I don't know which would be best for hunting. Does anyone here use these for hunting?

    Got my SMR yesterday. Less than one month from the day I ordered it! I was expecting it to take a few months. I’ve never seen one in person and have to say it is slimmer, more petite than I thought it would be. I love it.

    Shooting way low!

    My flint .45 is shooting a foot and a half low and six inches to the left at twenty five yards with 25 grains of fffg and a tight prb. I shot it with 40 grains and it came up just over an inch. It’s a early pedersoli. These are the rear sights I’m having to use to get on target. The front sight...

    What do I have here?

    I just bought this pendersoli Kentucky from a member here. I was expecting a threaded vent liner and a patent breech but I get this. And the breech seems to be traditional/ standard.

    .32 shooters

    How many shots do you get before your accuracy falls off? I started getting a couple flyers after 6 shots with no swabbing between.

    Clogged nipple

    I'm new so I have a lot to learn. I have a Traditions Crockett 32, using Pyrodex P FFF with a #10 or 11 cap. My problem is my nipple is getting clogged quick. If I wait 3 shots I have to use the #11 caps just to make it go off without hang firing, and you can't even force the pick through at...
