    TVM Early Virginia on its way

    Yep, I wish I had caught that in the pic before it was shipped. I have had some conversations with TVM about it and they wanted me to remove the barrel and ship it back to them. I did not want to do that, so I took it to a gunsmith down the road in Sheridan who is going to fix it for me. He did...

    TVM Early Virginia on its way

    Yep, I agree. I have watched a few tutorial videos and I can fix this myself. I will ask the group.....should I start by removing some metal in the notch in the barrel or remove some metal from the sight to fit the notch? Thanks everyone for your comments and suggestions.

    Yes, they have been super nice and assured me that they will do whatever it takes to address my concerns.

    TVM Early Virginia on its way

    Yep, the rifle is here. It sure is purty. Even my wife who patiently endures my eccentricities and hobbies said that she loved the look of the steel against the dark walnut. As some of you noticed in the pics, the front sight is not flush with the barrel. I didn't catch that before shipping and...

    I have talked to Melanie about my concern with the sight as it appears in the picture, but the rifle had already been shipped. UPS is supposed to deliver it today. She told me to let them know if I still have concerns when I have the rifle in hand.

    TVM sent me these pics of my .54 caliber 42" Early Virginia with walnut stock and iron furniture. Should arrive next week. Turnaround time from placing my order to completed rifle was about ten months. 10 months. They have been great to work with.

    What mistakes have you noticed in movies/tv shows that happen in the BP era like Daniel Boone, Patriot etc?

    I don't even know where I should start with the **** show that is "The Patriot." I recall reading that Mel Gibson's character was originally supposed to be based on Francis Marion, but like all historical figures, the Swamp Fox had some un-PC "baggage" that made the movie makers run off with a...
