    T/C Flintlock

    Shot my T/C Renegade Flintlock this morning for the first time in over a year. The first shot was a FTF ( no sparks at all ), but everyone after that she went bang. She doesn't throw a pan full of sparks, but she shoots with no delays or hang fires. It was a new flint which I installed bevel...

    My New Old Rifle

    Shot my New Old Rifle today for the first time after she'd been worked on by a friend. He went thru the lock, almost completely rebuilding it and enlarged the touch hole to 1/16th. The rifle was originally built by Jackie Brown. The difference is night and day. Instead of measuring the lock...

    Percussion Cap Substitute

    A few years back I saw an ad for a substitute for a #11 nipple. The nipple replacement allowed the use of a centerfire primer. Are these devices still available. Thanks, Gene

    What size patches and balls

    Roundball, What size patches and balls are you shooting in your TC flintlocks with the RB barrels? I've tried shooting .495 balls and .015 patches in my 50 cal and I'm getting blown patches. I switched to .020 patches and no blow-thru, but my accuracy doesn't appear to be any better. I didn't...

    TC Flintlock

    I have converted my TC Renegade to a flintlock with a TC RB barrel and lock. I lapped the barrel and have yet to shoot a good group. I have moved the rear sight almost as far as it will go to the left and I'm still hitting several inches from the black at 25 yards. I had to shoot .50...

    They're here

    All: My new TC flintlock and RB barrel are here. The lock fits, but it is very tight in the mortise. The barrel fits, sorta. It's about 1/8 in. high at the forend. TC sent a new tang with the barrel, so I'll probably have to install it. Can't hardly wait to see how it shoots. Gene

    All: Never never ever use a wooden ramrod (except for decoration) on your muzzleloading rifle. Even if it looks like it would never break, take my word for it, it will....... Gene
