    Stolen Wampum Belt - Southwest PA

    This was posted by a friend, just spreading the word. Note that it is a reproduction, not an original. So while I was working at the 18th-Century exhibit at Meadowcroft today, I was out of the cabin teaching tomahawk throwing. A visitor went into the cabin and stole the belt of wampum we use for...

    LeMat "hand and spring" help needed

    A question for the LeMat gurus. I did something that I knew I shouldn’t have done, and pulled the sideplate off mine, just out of curiosity, since I’d not done it before. Is the “hand and spring” (as it is listed on the parts list) one piece or two? Mine is two and I can’t see a way to...

    Track of the Wolf

    Priming question

    'evening, I know that a good many of you promote priming with the same granulation as your main charge. I'm going to give that a try, but have a procedural question. How do you do it? Do you prime directly from the horn, do you put a small amount in your main charge measure and dump from...

    Need help identifying a heavy barrel target rifle

    'afternoon, I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me identify the maker. I know it's a long shot... I purchased the rifle off Auction Arms about a year ago. It needed more TLC than the ad indicated, but the price was right. It mics at about .56, and the fittings are German silver. It has...
