    very old caplock.

    Have you checked the bore with a drop in light? I have rescued some pretty cruddy bores, and it's worth a try. I usually plug the nipple, and fill the bore with white vinegar.

    First traditional harvest

    When a Gran Torino, hit one of our bulls that got loose in 1978, it wasn't a harvest. He survived the night with half of his head caved in, and we killed him the next day. You should have seen the car!

    Something You Don't See Often

    Something You Don't See Often

    Thanks for all the advice folks, shale head. I think getting a replacement main spring is gonna be a pain. Anyone have any leads on where to locate one this size, or someone who can make it?

    Honing pitted barrel.

    Welcome The breech plug should never be removed for routine cleaning. I think what your describing is what we call slugging the bore. I have never done it, but it can be done with good results. I would however send the barrel to Bobby Hoyt, and let him go at it.

    What did you do today

    I went and looked at something grand! Steam engines, and diesel engines have not been ran since 1957. The large engine ran machinery, and the ones indoors provided all the electricity. Been a fan of steam power my whole life, and may look to save the big engine.
