I agree with Mike.  Myron was a super nice guy to work with.  I miss being able to visit him at Friendship.

Where did you get a horn that size ?  I have been looking for one (ok....maybe not quite that big)... to make up as a powder storage horn.  Haven't been able to find one.
What you want is a Watusi bull horn.  I bought a pair off of Ebay from a vendor called rmckbones.  I have purchased sever items from him over the years and have been very pleased.

Dunno what works for the average Joe, but this works for me.  50 yards, offhand.  High shot on the left target was the fouler.  Days I get to shoot at something longer than 50 yards here in the swamps are as rare as hen's teeth.  20-35 yards is the norm.

thanks for the tips. I wasn't the happiest with the pre-cut patchbox. I will try some of the ones from MBS next time.

Antique Gun Collecting / Lock styles
« Last post by Lindisfarne793 on Today at 05:29:27 AM »
Does anyone know anything about the use of blind screws being used in the lock plate for the sear screws? I have seen this referenced as being characteristic of very early Germanic locks, where only one screw is visible, however I have seen a few examples (most in Shumway's collection on Jaeger rifles) that have no visible sear screws. Is actually this typical of earlier locks or a particular region?
