    FOR SALE Who Needs A Summer Project Gun?

    I bought this thing at a gun show years ago with the intention of installing a breech plug and playing around with it. But it seems I’ll never get around to doing anything with it. I think it was Snyder breech loader that had the breech cut off. It’s a smooth bore around .72 - .75 diameter. The...

    Make Friends With A Roofer

    Besides usually being pretty nice guys, they remove a lot of old soft lead roof jacks and will probably give you some. Then, after a few hours of dirty nasty smelly work, you can have a nice supply of 1½ lb. nice clean ingots.

    GOEX vs. Swiss

    I’ve always been a GOEX guy. I hardly ever shoot any of the black powder subs. Also, I’ve never tried Swiss black powder even though I’ve seen numerous reports that it produces better accuracy, is cleaner burning and load for load yields higher and more consistent velocities than GOEX. So after...

    Good Deal on Black Powder

    Hey guys, Graf & Sons has their black powder on sale now at 10% off. That along with their $7.95 flat rate shipping and $10 HAZMAT fee makes for a pretty good deal. I have a good supply of GOEX on hand. But I've never tried Swiss powder and figured this would be a good time to get some. Two...

    Anyone Need A Project Barrel?

    The .54 caliber Thompson Center barrel in the pictures below was on a gun I bought cheap years ago because I needed a stock for one of my Green Mountain barrels. It's been sitting in my closet ever since awaiting a project I'll never get around to. So it's available to the first "I'll take it"...

    Grins and Giggles with Two Barrels and Big Balls

    First you buy a gun you didn’t need. Then buy a mold and cast some nice shiny balls. Then fabricate a crude temporary peep sight out of a plastic bottle cap. And stick it on the gun with a little dab of hot glue. That should work! Then find a big piece of cardboard for a...

    Gluing Planks for Stock

    My local lumber yard has some really nice six foot Walnut planks. But they are 1" thick. How practical would it be to glue two of those together to make a two-inch thick plank for a stock?

    I'll Bet You Haven't Seen One Of These Before

    Picked this one up last Saturday. I already have a Pedersoli 12 Gauge double and don't really need another shotgun. But I could not resist this one. The bore is shiny clean and the locks work perfectly with strong springs and bridled tumbler and sear. Yesterday I just ordered a .690 ball mold...

    Cleaning With Brushes - Another Approach

    This is the way I do it. The brush works perfectly in .45, .50 and .54 caliber barrels. And you will never stick it.

    Free Junk

    Hey guys, a neighbor found this thing cleaning out someone's garage. Looks like a 1" x .54 caliber TC barrel in "rough :grin: " shape. If anyone wants it for a project I'd be happy to send it to you for the cost of shipping. You can have loads of fun filing the flats and getting it re-bored...

    Plain Wood to Pretty Wood

    I wonder what this guy could do to a Thompson Center gun stock. If you get bored with the early part of the video, move it to about the nine minute mark.
