Finished my first true gun build

It’s taken a great deal of time and effort, but I finally finished my first true gun build, not just assembling a bag full of parts.

What started out as a box of roughed in parts

Where nothing fit, so I had to file, sand, chisle and carve to get the parts to fit right.

All of the brass needed to be polished.

So much sanding

Finally finished. Did a function test, it works. Just need to get to the range and test fire it.

Nice job.
Make that an excellent job.
Thanks for sharing.
I used to attend muzzle loading competitions once upon a time.
And I, too, thought of doing one.
But then decided just shooting them old smoke poles was enough work.

With my rifle I can get a shot from empty to fire in about 60 seconds. Here’s two shots in just over two minutes hitting targets (water filled milk jugs) offhand at 50 and 100 yards…

I had a Bess (smooth military musket) that I loaded with paper cartridges from a belt box and I could do five shots in 60 seconds (starting with a loaded musket) for demonstrations.
