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.
Turned out beautiful! Good job
I think its great, good job
what’s a respectable reload time on one of these? @Stumpkiller
Sticking it to the AR-15 “builders” are ya.
Have to respect age bro,
He might be younger than i…
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.
Really like that, it’s awesome!
very cool, I have eyeballed these a few times.
