    Italian Made Guns

    My thoughts were speculation on what may happen. If you look at Cherry's, Flintlocs Etc. and some of the other distributors the last several years, there is normally a comment, "check on availability on many of the M/L's. Some of Pedsersoli's have been difficult to get for quite some time...

    Italian Made Guns

    Wondering what is going to happen in the future with the cost and availability of Italian made M/L's is going to be. For the most part, all of the M/L's are made in Italy today. There is really no way at this point to speculate what is going to happen with the situation there now. Guess if a...

    My house was built in 2004 and it had 6 lead roof vents and I re-roofed in 2020 because of hail damage. Roofer swapped them for a 6 pack, which we split while visiting.

    Cut fingers

    To fall in line, Cutfingers's does quality work, I will not admit to how much of his work I have. Some I keep and some I donate to my club's annual auction, it always goes for more than what I pay for it.

    Dutch Schultz' Accuracy Method

    "What is everyone's opinion of Dutch Schultz' accuracy method? Where can I get a copy of it?" There is a lot of good information in Dutch's writings, I have a complete copy of it and re-read it periodically. It is not a total panacea, but his writing are not based on internet biased opinions...

    Lyman GPR replacement barrel

    I had not thought about that, could be some time as you said and there could be a substantial price increase when they do arrive.

    Static and blackpowder.

    I was at the Swiss Distributor and the static electricity discussion came up. They poured out a line of Swiss BP and tried get it to light with a stun gun and they could not get it to light. Static electricity is not going to set off BP.

    Lyman GPR replacement barrel

    Price I quoted is from the Log Cabin Catalog No. 49, not sure when it was published. Might check at Dixon's or Track OF The Wolf to see what they have. Could check on e-bay or gun broker, but I am hesitant buying used.

    Lyman GPR replacement barrel

    You can buy a new flint lock barrel by Lyman from Log Cabin with a 1 in 60 twist for $ 299.95 or you could have re-bored by Mr. Hoyt to a larger size. Going larger will increase the recoil though and for off hand shooting that might not be what you want.
