    SOLD Pre-Dixie Gunworks - Turner Kirkland flintlock 45 cal $500 Shipped price

    A little ugly but functions well with a good bore, there is pitting on the mirror finish on the OUTSIDE of the Barrell, I tried to show it well in the photos I believe it could be polished out or would be substantially improved aesthetically by a rust bluing. Seems like a bubba build but the...

    Torn patches!

    Drill cloth worked for me! Held up a lot better than the ticking I was using.

    Blown out patches? bore, crown, patching material, lube where to start?

    Problem solved! Patches staying together nicely! Had a group with 3 shots touching at 35 yards and decent groups out to 45 (didn’t push it further!) hopefully I can tighten the groups up with some load development, and practice! Steps I took 1. Sanding the sharp edge off the crown with 320...

    Torn patches!

    Good luck! Same gun same issue same club what are the chances, seems like you’re a little further down the rabbit hole than me on this.

    Blown out patches? bore, crown, patching material, lube where to start?

    gave it a few spins with 320 with the thumb followed it up with 500. I think I broke the sharp edge I don’t want to overdo it
