Nicely done.  Real clean work.  Love that original and it's sister. How's the lock feel?  I like the looks of it.

   I'd rather not push the pins out of my full stock rifles every time I shoot them,  maybe it doesn't hurt anything, but I figure sooner or later it's going to mess something up.

Dave,

Super work!  It could be mistaken for a beautifully preserved original.  You captured the "feel" and "soul" of the English gun of the period.  "Second quality"?  You crack me up!

I make some.
  I'll be doing some more in a couple weeks. I can't access Photobucket for some reason. I'll try again Sunday, off to a shoot today. If I can't attach them at that time, message me your email, I can send pictures.

I like the patent breech and find it no harder to clean than any other type. Just use water and flush/pump and the thing is clean. If a person thinks its too much work to clean his ml gun he should take up another sport. After cleaning I dry the bore and anti-chamber and use WD-40. Have done it that way since the late 60s and never had a problem.

There are some new foam cleaning tips of various calibers that work well for oiling the patent breeches.  They are like foam paint brushes.  I use a 30 caliber foam tip that I put Barricade on to get to the patent breech for lubing and rust protection.  When heading to the range, or before setting out for a hunt, I blow out the barrel from the nipple or touch hole liner (depending on the gun) with an air compressor, or if an air compressor is not available a blast or two from one of those co2 dischargers.  I have never had a FTF when doing this for the past 3 years.
