    WANTED WANTED The Pedersoli™ Coach Gun

    To clear this - the two new members with no history did contact me via PM and I contacted the 'buyer' via Gmail and then they told for me to send money.

    Before you but your money down, make sure you can get the caps. Some will use an #10 and some will use a #11 cap. Can you get a supply locally? If you need to get them online, you will pay a HAZ fee and costs a few bucks and will add to the cost. IF you can find them. If you use real back...

    Cylinder Loader

    I have a loader (but not the “Big Lube” Tower of Power Loader). I have a Harbor Freight torque wrench with settings so you can adjust the pressure. When it hits the limit, it stops adding pressure. I would be nice to use a fitting with the handle in the loader so you can keep the same...

    ROA cylinder mods

    When I got my cylinders, I looked with a light to see the cylinders through the barrel and all three were about 1/32th off center or better. That is why I had to ship the frame to Edo to fix the indexing problems. It took a couple weeks but they are OK now.

    ROA cylinder mods

    I bought three of the ClassicBallistix cylinders last year and they needed to fix the cylinders and redo the cylinders for the barrel would line up. It took a couple weeks and I gave the fame to Edo but he made it right. With Swiss of 3fff powder, the cylinders will hold 45 grains with a...

    Remington & Triple 7

    I have a flintlock pistol from my father and it has been in the family from the War From 1812. About two years back I took a dowel to check if it was loaded. It seems it is. Someday I will pull the ball and the powder (the flint is missing).

    Remington & Triple 7

    I loaded up an Uberit 1860 Colt with 30 grains of 777 about 10 years back. Last week I shot it. The balls barely made out the barrel and there was a thud when the shots went off, not a BOOM. I tried 777 in a cap type T/C Hawken and there was a delay and I missed my shot and bought some Swiss...

    The best way is to keep away from bears. BUT ----- I have a loading stand now. It seems IF you use a loading stand, why not pull the nipples and clean really them well and use a pick to make sure the nipple is clean and press the caps with a wooden dowel and then seal the cap on the nipple by...

    TC Thompson Patriot

    I got one in the mid 80's and I used a loading stand and the power charge per the manual and broke the stock. They replaced it but I still have not shot it again. A lot of people say use a top 20 grains of power and do not use a loading stand and you should should OK. I can use the Trapper...

    Leaving C&B loaded

    I bought an Old Army in the mid 1980’s and I shot a bunch of times and then put in the safe for about 10 years. The nipples was stuck and I needed to send it to Strum and they gave a new cylinder for free. Put some Anti-Seize stuff on the nipples every time you put it away and you are good to...

    leaving my gun loaded?

    I inherited a flintlock pistol that was from the war from 1812 area. My dad kept in a case display until he gave it to me in the mid 2000’s. I put it in the safe for safe keeping and from time to time I look at it. The flint was long gone but the gun it looks it could fire. The ramrod is...

    deerstalker, range report, care and maint

    My ex-wife gave me a Thompson Center 54 cal. flintlock in the mid 80’s. The last time I shot it (in the 80’s), I cleaned it with dish soap and hot water, used a brass bore brush to knock off all of the gunpowder and cleaned it again with dish soap and hot water again, used the air compressor to...
