    If whatever your using can "copy" and "paste", you can try copying a picture and then pasting it into your post.

    It's a little time consuming with the going back and forth to post multiple pictures but it should work for you.

    The only times it didn't work for me was when I was trying to copy and post very large pictures.

    Please keep trying. I really want to see what you described earlier. I don't seem to have any trouble uploading files.

    Dear Mac Rob46 I will keep trying . Your photo shows a fine piece in the style the Breadalbane gun exellent .I am making a lock for the Breadalbane gun hence I've studied the original , But pleased I've not to make the stock as on my 7 foot bench it would be a struggle . You do nice work .While Ive no actual Jacobite sympathies I did portray one. One Culloden I did was in New York and I seem to be a maker of'' Snapis' ,currently struggleing with a handed pair of all steel heart butts gifted to me as parts by a late friend years ago the wood stocked don't faze me but the all steel is new ground . Regards Rudyard

    Thanks Rudyard. I appreciate the complement but I did not make the rifle, it was made by Steve Krolick. I thought it looked like the Breadalbane gun a little bit so, since everything has to have a name, that is what I dubbed it. The barrel is much shorter.

    As far as photos, if you will upload pics to your computer in jpg format, set up a file on your desktop for ease of locating them, then cut and paste or copy the pics into the file folder, you can easily upload them to the forum. That's what I do.

    No joy as yet but I will perseveer Ive been reading over your previous posts . You clearly are well into your Scotts pieces . My 45 rifle has the full snaphance and Ime currently making up A large lock for a gentleman in Tennesee which will be full Snaphance . .I can understand the use of evolved pan cover it made sense but the link was what was used and so shall I . With its ability to carry un cocked but pan cover over primeing . a feature not found on Morrocan locks or none I've encountered .The only bogey using the early squared nut to tighten onto the flint is its hard on the fingers to cock something often ? (Of the few remaining ) found converted or made anew like your own being less of that problem ..I don't think any of the early locks gave any greater or lesser quikeness of fireing inc Wheellocks . Much being down to the shape & position of the vent . Regards Rudyard
