I’ve had a couple setbacks…
1. Cannot get the ramrod into the channel. So note to self, when pinning the entry thimble. Have the ramrod inplace, then drill the pin locations. So darn…
2. The sights Do Not Fit into the dovetails cut into the barrel, I need to recut them.
3. The lock screw, is misaligned. It took me 2 hours of carefully trimming small amounts of wood, before I could barely get them aligned and the lock installed.
4. I still need to finish the lock in the same antique grey finish as the rest of the hardware. Problem is…I know I can get the lock taken apart; not so sure I can reverse that process.
Finish came out nice though a bit shiny…it will dull with time and use.
