    Simple question. Have any of you with the capabilities ever attempted to replace the integral percusson nipples in an original A & T pepperbox? Is there enough “meat” at the breech end to d&t for an appropriate nipple? i think archaeologist son has my Flaydermann, so I can’t look model up. (...

    1792 Contract rifle.

    I have personally enjoyed the sister thread started by 4575WCF. Was curious as to who out there other than myself owns a recreation. I realize there is ample Fantasy and artistic license in the recreation of such rifles. But I wanted something to fit in with my interest in those early filibuster...

    Northstar West British officer’s fusil

    Greetings! A quick question to the learned constituency here. I have a NSW officers fusil I built from one of their kits about 20 years ago. I have fallen back into the company of questionable individuals here locally, and my kit will most likely require the need of a bayonet. My question...

    I hope it will shoot

    Because it sure holds nice! All I need to do is finish browning the lock. I put all the goof ups and mistakes a blind man can put into a build. Learned what not to do, for sure! Had this old barrel in my shop close to 40 years. Built new shop and found it! It's an old Dixie GW Standard...
