    Rear sight

    No, it is just the rear sight. I use TOTW part number FS-PA-37 in conjunction with the Johnson sight. The height is right.

    Adapter M5 male to female 10-32

    @IanH I think the link rule only applies to gun auctions. I have a Euroarms Enfield Carbine that had a male M5 tip. In measuring it, it was so close to 10-32 that I chose to run a 10-32 die over the metric threads. It didn't booger them at all, and I can use my 10-32 accessories now.

    Thread Tied Patched Round Balls?

    Really an interesting 'thread'. I always wondered how the Baker, 1803 HF, common rifle etc. patched ball rifle cartridges were prepared. This makes it very clear. @ArmorerRoy when you load those, which side goes down? Very cool.

    Adjustable hone?

    Maybe cut the plug/nipple area off, hone than rethread for plug and nipple? Only loosing maybe 1"? Yes.

    Adjustable hone?

    Even with an adjustable reamer you’re not going to get all the way to the breechplug face

    Cylinder filler

    If you're making 50 cent piece size groups at 20 yards, with a bp revolver, I'd say you are on top of your game, and not to change a thing!

    WITHDRAWN WTB RMC Ox-Yoke Quick 6 Loading Stand

    I used one as well. Getting it to shave the ring was hell. Needs to be a lever style press and not threaded.

    Adjustable hone?

    I don't know of an adjustable hone that small. I think you would need an adjustable reamer. Idk how well it would work. Aren't CVA breechplugs non-removeable?

    Help! with cleaning my musket

    My cleaning routine/regimen has changed a few times since I started shooting, to try different things. Do this enough and you'll sort through what does work and what doesn't work for you. After a while you'll create your own thing. I have used boiling water and I have used nondiscriminate...

    I think the only use a --edit-- has in a slow twist barrel is if the shooter wanted to try firing a smaller diameter roundball from the existing bore. There are many variables that can allow or prevent this. It would be a matter of the shooter experimenting with it for themselves. Somewhere I...

    Round ball weight margins relative to diameter

    When weighing round balls, what are your go/nogo weight margins for small ball vs larger ball? I've been going through all the RB I have cast. Weighing and rejecting what is +/- 1gr beyond the average, both ways. I started at the largest, .720, and I've made it down to .440. I still have...
