Items for Sale/Wanted / FS: Flintlock pan primer
« Last post by Scout on Today at 03:58:04 AM »

I recently purchased this primer from another member here. It was going to be a gift to a family member that has a flintlock pistol. He has a primer he's had a number of years and prefers it and does not need or want this one.  :o I was a bit taken back but I understand.
I had also added a chain and different plug to it. It comes with my addition and the original one.

First "I'll take it" gets it.

$50.00 shipped in the CONUS.
Paypal gift or a USPS MO.

That horn would be the epitome of perfection for a pistol. I'm not sure if I could effectively prime my pistol with it, but if so, it would be ideal for the woodswalks I shoot.
Price lowered to 700.00 shipped.

Tim..., the cheek piece has a bead formed near the top, done with a beading cutter.  Dembart or similar manufacture.  The groove on the bottom was simply done with a gouge.  Those two elements were then blended together.

Dennis..., what Randall said in regards to using an existing metal guard.  The sheet wax Iíve used was purchased through Freeman Manufacturing & Supply Co., in Avon, Ohio.  (440) 934-1902.  They have a wide selection of adhesive backed sheet wax.
I used maple for the wood patterns.  Here are a couple more photos of the pattern.  This is from the Klette rifle that your friend was so gracious to let me study.  The small pieces of wood are the lugs for the guard.  Another photo of a different  pattern with a mostly cleaned up casting.

I might have  a photo somewhere, but it was pre=digital, so would take a bit of finding now.
