    .50 caliber Smoothbores?

    Over the past few years I have seen at least a dozen of these .50 caliber smoothbore percussion guns show up on various sites for sale. In addition, Mike Brooks has built at least two .50 caliber smooth rifles for his recent customers, and another Lehigh style that was a work of art that he made...

    Colt Walker question?

    Will Goons Gun Works (or anyone else) install a late model loading lever latch onto a Uberti Colt Walker? I would be willing to pay decent money to have such a service performed, say $100-$200. I am guessing that because of the rounded surfaces of the barrel and loading lever, that it is not...

    Questions about Kibler .58 Colonial?

    For those members that have purchased a Kibler Colonial kit in .58 caliber, I have two questions. 1. If you have an accurate scale, what does your rifle weigh in at, and with what type of wood? Please do not give me approximations, or bathroom scale measurements. Nor, how much your .54, or .50...

    At What Range Have Most of Your Big Game Animals Been Shot At?

    Since the advent of, and rise in popularity of, the inline muzzleloading rifle, if one listened to the gun writers, and their constant drivel; you would be hard-pressed to believe that anything but a modern inline m-l rifle shooting a light-for-caliber bullet out of a plastic sabot was capable...

    Reasons Your Gun Didn't Sell

    I have been visiting various m-l forums for more than a decade now. Like most of us, I probably spend time on these forums as much to "Window Shop", as for any other reason that I visit. When I view someone's FOR SALE add, the first thing I notice, after any incorrect written information...

    Who Hunts w/an Escopeta?

    I am curious as to how many forum members own a functional, safe-to-hunt-with escopeta? One with a patilla flintlock? And, of those members that own one, what bore size is it? Do you hunt with it at all? If so, what type of game do you hunt with your escopeta? Do you shoot patched balls, wadded...
