Still for sale? I am interested. Questions, is the drum fully tightened in the pictures? I mean is there any play in the drum? I ask because of problems I have had problems in the past when purchasing these, where I find the drum is not fully tightened and when it is tightened the hammer is not properly aligned with the nipple in the drum. The brown job looks great and if it has not been shot like you say and the bore is great I may just buy it from you but I want to make sure that the hammer and nipple are properly aligned when the drum is fully clocked tight. Let me know.

Just a friendly FYI on drum adjustment. A small thin shim cut from any metal will not show and works well. Brass, Alum. can, heavy Alum foil. just cut and try...c

Im not sure what you mean by that. The bore is .445 I believe the same as when Pedersoli used to call these .44 cal. I do have one of those earlier .44’s in a flintlock. I could dig it out and measure. I was going to list it anyway at some point.
I used .440 balls in that when I used to shoot it.

I dug out my calipers and near as I can tell both are around .447-..450. Im not a machinist though, so might be off a hair.
As flintleather suggested, .433 balls would likley work well too, just with a thicker patch.
