Greetings. New to muzzle loaders but not new to firearms. I've not owned or fired a black powder weapon in probably 35 years and that was one of the foreign made replica revolvers. I've rebuilt several modern military type rifles and decided it was time to switch gears a little so I jumped in head first. With a 7th generation grandfather who fought at the Battle of Lexington & Concord I decided on a Brown Bess. But being a poor old retired guy and having a passion for bringing old neglected things back from the dead I ordered one of the Nepal "kits" from IMA. Wish me luck on my newest adventure.
