    Tc hawken replacement nipple

    I like the Treso nipple too, and the Uncle Mikes OR T/C stainless you see from time to time, and the platinum lined version too… as long as the orifice holds up, I like any of them.

    Cleaning revolvers

    A little AR?? In the immortal words of our Commander in Chief, “C’mon man!!” I have my favorites, shoot the Navy Arms sheriff at least once a week and often more. Then the others as something strikes my fancy. The Navy is a real sweet shooter but it obviously has the navy grip frame so it’s...

    Cleaning revolvers

    I put a few cylinders through the little Navy (on the far right) today. Haven’t shot it for a few months and of course it’s been loaded since the last outing. The 20 grains of 3f ignited just like that, and the Kaido bullets shoot with authority. A great small game load. I came in to the shop...

    PA is humid. It’s got to be the humidity. I keep my ignore button right here between my ears… there are posters here who get my attention every time they post. Others are easy to ignore.

    .54 Cal TC Renegade STOCK 1:48 Twist Accuracy Test

    Lewis,,I’m fitting a Lyman MJT 20 to one of my barrels, I’m just waiting on the Shaver insert card. The thing is freaking HUGE!! Hopefully that gigantic tunnel helps let in enough light to make it a useful hunting sight. also, I spied these on Amazon… got the wheels turning now.

    Colt 1860 Army 2nd Generation

    In that gun 454 will work well. I pump the action full of mobil one synthetic grease and cleaning consists of cleaning the cylinder, barrel and wiping dow the exterior. That’s it. Every year or so I will clean out the lockworks, fill it back up with grease and carry on. Colts directions are...

    plugs for the screw holes in the barrel ?

    At least your previous owner managed to get them all centered on the flat… but either way, it’ll look much better when you finish up!

    plugs for the screw holes in the barrel ?

    I believe it’s mentioned in Deuteronomy. I’m not gonna go looking for it. 🤓 Meanwhile, I have a Green Mountain LRH that someone got happy with the drill press. At least three attempts were made to mount scope bases. They’re shallow but look like crap, I’m gonna plug them permanently and file...

    Swiss 3F in .50 cal rifles

    The instruments used to measure pressure either use old technology like lead “crusher” pellets in a fixture mounted on the barrel or newer tech like,strain sensors fixed to the tube. Either are very accurate. “All three barrels, one Douglas (.45 cal.), and two Getz (.50 & .62 cal.) were...

    Swiss 3F in .50 cal rifles

    I doubt if anyone here is capable of detecting an overload in that manner. By the time a barrel swells enough to be detected by our hand tools it’s probably on its way to bursting milliseconds later. Unless you use smokeless powders it’s very difficult if not impossible to blow a properly...

    First, read more before calling a well respected long time member a liar. You missed pretty much everything. Zoomed right over your head.

    Knuckle buster

    I have long noticed that there are quite a few Remington revolvers in really good condition dating back to the cap and ball era. I wonder if shooters back then capped off a few loads, thought to themselves, “this bites!” cleaned and put the old gun away… 🤔

    Traditional and accurate

    Ne really sure the cotton balls are just cotton, no synthetic materials for obvious reasons. Tedious? Oh yes… most people use a drill mounted wad cutter. When I used the cardboard wads I made them from cardboard milk boxes or something similar. Waterproof so lube from the bullet won’t migrate...

    Roundballs in a Sharps

    It’s been years since I owned a sharps percussion rifle but I did occasionally use a round ball. Probably .454” and I seated them from the breech using a short starter. Then just add loose powder, cap and fire. It worked okay as I remember it. Very light recoil from a 9+ pound rifle.

    Nope, I tried that. The software doesn’t know what a percussion cap is…

    I have a few Tyler T-grips laying around here but none fit the Remington. It would be the ideal solution IMO. Or, there’s this…
