    New Pietta 1851

    I contacted the seller & they're going to exchange it. They were very good about it & didn't even want pics emailed to them. Now, will I get it before I go back overseas? I don't know but hopefully. I don't know how it shoots as I never even cleaned the shipping oil off of it. If it had been...

    New Pietta 1851

    I thought I read they don't do actual color case gardening these days. I'm going to call the place I bought it from & see if I can get a replacement.

    New Pietta 1851

    I just bought this Pietta 1851 Navy & I'm not happy with the loading lever. The hinge area coating is pretty bare. Is this normal for Pietta? My Ubertis look much better.

    WARNING: A too good deal is probably a too good deal if from a stranger.

    Things aren't always as they seem. This is like my 19th post but I've bought a few things on here. Being new to BP, I simply don't have much to offer in threads though I read a lot. Although I have a collection now, I haven't shot much at all. My situation is peculiar as well, since I work in...

    Newbie-long time shooter, have almost no muzzleloader experience

    Welcome from Florida & the Middle East. Newbie here too but I jumped in with both feet. I have 4 or 5 BP guns I haven't even seen yet & I'm not sure how many I have now lol. Only two long guns so far & one is a TC Hawken. I was looking at the St Louis site just today. I'm very surprised to hear...

    Question - Cimarron BP revolver

    I bought a group of cap & ball revolvers for a song to start in BP. They came with two of those improved cylinders, one for the Walker & the other for a Remington (IIRC, haven't been home to see them in a long time), both new. Anyway, it seemed counterproductive to switch them out. I bought the...

    Hello Everyone

    Welcome from FL & the Middle East. I have four Mosins. None are Finnish but one is a Remington. Be careful with black powder. It's a lot more addictive than Mosins & one is all it takes!

    Your best deal acquiring a muzzleloader, either trade or purchase

    My best is what originally got me into this. A guy posted an ad about some BP guns. Turns out it was an estate sale of sorts. The guy had a lot of stuff from muzzleloaders to modern guns. I walked out with 11 guns for 950. He had a group of rifles but none were in great shape, some with rust...

    Hello from Florida (sort of)

    Hello. I thought I had done this but realized I didn't, so I'm correcting that. I'm normally in FL but currently working in the middle east. While I've always been attracted to BP & muzzleloaders, I never took the plunge until I got into them by accident in 2019 (this would be one of those Bob...

    J D Long Rifles

    The rest of the story is I'll have to buy it sight unseen. I won't be home until summer.

    J D Long Rifles

    This one is definitely more shooter than looker though I haven't seen it in person. I'm new to black powder. I bought a nice Lehigh style flintlock but I'd like to have more of a shooter instead of always shooting the nice one. This rifle is less than $500 so I wanted to see if the experts could...

    J D Long Rifles

    No, it's not vintage. It has a Douglas barrel & is stamped as in the pic. One sold on guns int'l but I can't see the sale price. I'm curious if anyone knows anything about it & if it's worth buying.

    J D Long Rifles

    Hi. I'm looking for information about J D Long Rifles. A flinter is up for sale locally but I can't find any info on it. Have you guys ever heard of them? If so, price range? TIA
