    Hello from Norway.

    Welcome to the forum from Pennsylvania USA. Norway is a beautiful country. I spent some time in the caves around Trondheim.

    Argument Time

    My touch hole is in the correct position so the prime cain't cover it. I do run a pick through the power charge before I prime and haven't had anything but instant ignition since. Once I close the frizzen I never think of it again.

    turkey IQ

    There's no doubt they're as dumb as a rock but their survival instincts are unmatched by just about any living creature on earth since they evolved more than 11 million years ago. I once saw about 80 Rio Grandes crossing a pasture, there was a sheep fence at the tree line and the entire flock...

    Welds and their affect on steel finishes

    It wouldn't be nothing for me to fire up the tig and weld that, but not for a 1/16", I'd rework the wood and make a perfect fit all the way around.

    How does that compare in price to scrap lead or say roto metals prices? I don't know what scrap price is these days, roto's 99.9% pure 1lb ingots are $3.19. Shipping's probably ridiculous though.

    Will this work for a barrel dunk reservoir ?

    Silicone caulk and a few screws may work. There is a low temp aluminum welding rod thats used with a propane torch that would work for sure. I think that tractor supply has them.

    Fusils!? :D

    Yeah man, same gun, same job. This is my favorite out of my herd. I've taken a bear, a few deer, a bunch of gobblers and a few rabbits and squirrels with it.

    Pedersoli bess lock

    Does anyone know if Pedersoli's brown bess lock is plated or just highly polished? I want to darken the lock and barrel either rust blue or brown to hunt with. The last thing I want to do is blind a poor gobbler with the reflection off of this, just wouldn't be sporting. lol

    Clip on rear sight

    I'd never tell someone not to to shoot the way that they like, with or without a rear sight. I can only say what my experience with my fusil de chasse is, if it helps you decide on a rear sight. Excluding bow season, I've been hunting with my smooth bore for the past 6 years. Took 2 bear, 4...

    Lock question

    I replaced the cock on a guess and everything is good to go. The cock stop was filed too far. I installed a 7/8 flint and it strikes right where I want it and has great spark. Thank y'all again for all the input.

    Lock question

    Thank you all for the info.

    Lock question

    No, been using 3/4" and it's just about even to the edges of the frizzen. I saw that it said to use 7/8" flints, there's no way 7/8" would fit this lock.

    Lock question

    Does anyone recognize the rifle? The auction was in VA. See how close the bottom jaw is to the pan? None of my other flintlocks are anywhere near that close. It dosen't look like the cock stop was filed, but it dosen't hit even across the entire surface.

    Lock question

    I picked up a .58 jaeger rifle at an auction online. I don't know who built it and I didn't need it, but had my initials ingraved on it so I took it as an Oman and bid $ 425 and totally forgot about it. A couple of week later I get an email saying that I won it. It shoots great, but I'm not...
