  1. 35 inch octagonal barrel. Smith markings have M.C. Timmerman 1999 on it. Double triggers, and a good lock. Picked up this .50 cal Thompson center's? ( Logo on barrel is green mountain) So ... a whitlock like long range muzzle loader for $220 at the gunshow. Had some surface rust. Just fuzz. Lifted easily. Look at the double barrel wedges. And yes... there are barrel seat loops that align for them. Oddest rifle I've come acros this year. After I cleaned it up its in fine shape, and has good hammer alignment to nipple. Rifling is cris
  2. Pics clean. And yes... I mourn for the " case hardened" heirloom look, but Im looking forward the "Hardend criminal" sweat rust look even more. Nipples are soaking. .
  3. We're fond of :If you dont run your gear, your gear will run you. " Test, evaluate, adjust, and reassessment. As far as practice- only one range near me allows BP, but that range does not allow "from the holster use" So... I am stuck field testing from a clearing barrel, dummy shells, and saying pew... pew.... Not to mention ammo and cap shortage. Am I having fun? Puzzles, crafting, modifications, and costuming is entirely entertaining.
  4. TEQUILA - They need to ad an ax & knife throw mulligan for anyone using cap and ball revolvers. Misfires not counted if you land the 10 yard throw.
  5. CLUELESS- yeah -ejectors on H&Rs are nice, but this lil fold up 12 has it own charm befor and after I find a double. Pluss H&Rs are fetching $200 at the shows. Got a mosberg knock off WFIELD for $180, and its a double bar, 5 shot pump.... I'm gonna keep it simple stupid for shotguns. I have to try everything the wrong way seems like before I embrace the best way.
  6. Barleycorn blaspheme! Rugers, Remington, and LeMatt... taking away all the lovely confounding trials that made men hard and creative. Honestly. I'm lookin at a pair of New Army's after my first year, but I am determined to make smoke with these two horse hammers. 1873's in .357 if they ever get imprted again too...
  7. 87 was not a fit for me. Pics before cleanup of tested walkers, 18 rds each. No cap jams or misfires. after rake and chute.
  8. If it wasn't for bad luck - you'd have no luck... LoL. What went right?
  9. Third match range report. Warning : I'm grumpy. After that frustrating match... I went to war on my Walkers. Cap rake, (threaded and replaceable), Right side recoil shield / spent cap chutes, Done and tested in my clearing barrel. 4hrs start to tested. Looks better than I expected. Pics soon. Still gotta clean up. This weekends match saw the results of my divorce of the 1887 levergun 12ga ... Frikin gun made my giant thumbs bleed... had to go. √óBought for $480. Sold for $560... win! Picked a
