    High prices of gun parts

    You must be thinking of AK47 type rifles. I can't think of a single part of an AR15 that's punched out sheet metal with the exception of the magazine. I believe the real issue is supply & demand. An AR15 barrel can be had for 50 bucks if you shop around and don't care about who made it but they...

    WANTED original Springfield lock parts

    Yes sir, that's what I was hoping for was that someone might have some good used original parts. The Dixie stuff is hit or miss from what I've read. Not sure who it's made by but I've read reviews that the mainsprings aren't reliable.

    WANTED original Springfield lock parts

    Need a bridle and a mainspring for a Springfield lock. 1861-1890 should all be the same. Also possibly a good barrel for a Civil War era Springfield. 1861 or 1863 type.

    Cabela's and Bass Pro

    Here in North East Tennessee we have a Bass Pro in Bristol and just over the border we had a Cabelas in Virginia. Now that they have merged the Cabelas is closing. Not sure if it has to do with the new proposed anti-gun crap going on in VA or just a business decision due to the 2 stores being...

    Like the title says. New project is going to be a Civil War Springfield. I need a lot. The biggest thing on the list right now is a good barrel but I need several other bits as well. Thanks

    TVM Woes! :(

    Nearly 200 comments and NONE from TVM unless I missed it ? People make mistakes. Good companies make it right when that happens. Great companies follow these forums and make adjustments to how they do things if they see they have unhappy customers. That's all I have to add...

    Finished a Lexington inspired horn

    Amazing ! What would a horn of that quality cost ? I actually have a 7th generation grandfather who was there that day on April the 19th 1775. Sgt. Seth Brooks, under the command of Captain Isaac Davis. Davis was the first officer killed on the first day of fighting.. Might be a customer for...

    Severely neglected CVA .45 caliber Kentucky half stock

    My understanding is that it's Phosphoric acid which is the same reason Coca Cola works to remove lots of nasty stuff.

    Severely neglected CVA .45 caliber Kentucky half stock

    They are tin plated as well and I was afraid anything stronger might attack the Tin or at least discolor it.

    Severely neglected CVA .45 caliber Kentucky half stock

    Molasses is something I've used in the past and I agree it works great. I use it in a 5 gallon bucket, about the same ratio to water as you posted. Here are some railroda lanterns I cleaned that way. They were covered with surface rust.

    Severely neglected CVA .45 caliber Kentucky half stock

    Thanks guys. It's finished as good as I can get it. Plugged the nipple hole and filled it with Vinegar for a couple days and then scrubbed it out. Whatever rust I may have missed will have to get shot out.

    Very creative. But I want something more traditional and I already have the leather. Thanks

    Looking for shooting bag patterns

    I don't expect y'all who make this type of stuff to give up your secrets but I've been making things with leather for many years just for friends and family, mainly carved belts, wallets, pocketbooks and that sort of thing. I have some nice leather that already has a finish on it I got somewhere...
