Items for Sale/Wanted / Re: #11 percussion caps for sale NY, no ship

Sorry.. I missed the no ship part.
Silly... Like anyone cares?. The gov does not obey their own laws, why should we care about shipping inert caps? I digress... guess I am not eligible to own. A true irony coming from anything out of NY.
I will take it. PM me for payment arrangements.

Antique Gun Collecting / Re: William Turvey rifle

It was loaded by unscrewing the gadget on top of the barrel that looks like a huge sight. When it was removed you just dropped a slightly oversized ball into the opening and push it against the rifling. Of coarse it could also be loaded like a regular muzzleloader. The ramrod shows quite a bit of wear, so it probably was loaded that way quite a bit.

I have 28 tins of  Remington #11 percussion caps in sealed containers and 2 CCI tins, one is sealed, the other appears to be full, but I'm not going to count them out.  Located about 30 minutes south of Albany NY.  No shipping.  $12 per tin. Please PM if interested.  Thank you. These are not magnums.
I'll take 10, Pm sent...

That is a mighty fine side arm. I know how difficult it is to checker a pistol grip. You did a grand job executing the ceckering.
Black Powder Shooting / Re: Measuring patch thickness

Why does it matter how or what tool you use as long as once you find the thickness your gun likes you use the same tool? I would always wash and dry the fabric to make sure it hasn't changed significantly.
Gun Building / Re: Brass Triggers?

A brass trigger could be bought or made. If wear concerns you, you could quite easily solder a steel strip to the top or side of the trigger blade.  ;)
