    Rust bluing results

    I am in the end stages of building my Traditions .50 cal Kentucky rifle kit. Still waiting for BLO to fully dry. Some like the dark brown rust look; however, I wanted this to be blued, so last weekend, I undertook the rust bluing of the barrel. I used the rusting compound from DGW. In...

    Percussion cap holders

    So, I have a ASM Colt Walker and a Pietta 1851 Navy .36 on it's way. Loading caps has always been a major pain, so I got poking around on Thingiverse. Thingiverse is a website of 3D models that people have designed. I have a 3D printer so I'm going to punch out a handful of these things. Someone...

    Finishing a barrel

    So, I took the plunge earlier this week and picked up a Traditions Kentucky flintlock .50 caliber kit.... Curses to the BP Flintlock guys at the range... As a kit, it needs to have several things done to get it into shooting condition. The first one step that I am planning on tackling is the...

    Hello all or "Well, that didn't take long."

    Good day all. I live in N.E. Tennessee at the feet of the Appalachians and have been into shooting in one form or another for most of my life. I actually moved here from Illinois back in 2006 and it was the best thing that I have ever done. I am an RSO at our local gun club which I enjoy as it...
