    draw filing barrels

    I've just spent 4-6 hours draw filing a 31" swamped barrel. This one looked great as delivered, but as I started draw filing, I noticed that it had "chatter" 4-5" from the breech, from the muzzle, and in the middle. As the file would move across, it would often ring like leaded crystal...

    Powder flasks

    In that I'm mostly a flintlock rifle shooter, I don't often look at powder flasks, but I purchased 2 "just because". Both were purchased at longrifle shows where the vast majority of longrifles on display were originals, and were priced as I would expect on cheap reproductions. The first stuck...

    Eye opener

    Today was 20 degrees cooler than its been, and overcast, so I thought it a good day to shoot a flintlock. I decided to take my 25 year old early Lancaster built with a large Siler lock and 38" swamped Getz .45. I bought the rifle used 20 years ago, and always loaded it similarly to the...

    R E Davis Twigg lock

    Has anyone used, have opinions of, the Davis "Twigg" flintlock? I'm thinking of using one on an English styled rifle, but think the Chambers Late Ketland and similar locks might be on the small side.

    Big Bore Hunting Rifles

    Big Bore is a relative term, but I'm thinking .58 and larger. My interest was piqued back in the late '90s by a Ross Seyfried article regarding Forsyth rifling in Blackpowder Hunting Magazine. I was interested enough to order a barrel from Bill (?) Moody in Missouri, 30" octagon to round...

    Snaphaunce with inticate wire and inlays

    Can anyone shed some information on this? Somebody put a tremendous amount of work in the wire and ivory or bone inlays. The lock doesn't hold "cocked postion" and the barrel is very thin at the muzzle. Click on the images to enlarge.
