It is a Pennsylvania long rifle,(Bedford County school) with a .50 cal. bore,42 inch barrel,7/8 inch across the flats.

Homemade lock plate and sheet metal parts,( ramrod pipes and lock bolt plate) and the weight is about 8 pounds.

Finish is several coats of tung oil. 

 

Sorry for the imperial measurements, you metric people will have to convert yourselves. ;)

Dear HB,

 

Is it still in functioning condition?

 

I must confess that the black powder .44 Italian new army revolver I had a go with was quite interesting to load and shoot.

Not too sure how people kept the caps on in a hostile environment, I can imagine them getting knocked off quite easily.

Maybe there is a trick to it.

 

and how do you keep powder in the pan when rushing about? or in the wind?

 

Range? Fps? Ammunition? Powder?

 

Sorry about the questions!

 

That certainly is a very nice rifle.

 

Salute!

 

Planky.

Have fun shooting it in!

 

What ammunition are you going to feed it? Cast your own?

 

In the spirit of brinkmanship I include a picture of my latest project I have been forced to work on by the owner...

It's a royal pain in the backside. 1954 Bel-Ami juke box. and it's been moved around so many times.

It tends to throw the tone arm at the record and then scratch them to blasted heck and back.

and a cat decided to go on the speaker inside the cabinet... the speaker was one corroded stinking mess. Ugh. Yech. Damn cats...

 

Can we see the bullet holes in your target after some shooting please!

 

Salute!

I'm afraid that wouldn't happen, it belongs to my brother now, and he said it will hang over his fireplace and would not be shot.

When I finish my squirrel rifle I'll show you some holes. :D

Oh. I see.

 

I hope you grease/wax/lubricate the bore so at some stage in the future.... it will still be serviceable.  : - )

 

Bring on the Squirrel gun!

 

Salute!
