Can this be made a sticky somewhere so it's easy to find when done ?

 Yes, once he finishes up we will let it run for a week or two in Building and then move it over to the Tutorials forum.

It's wonderful to see someone who recognizes the value of Brockway's great little book, and can make it come to fruition with such apparent ease.  Very nicely done Runastav.

Looking great.

"Taylor, if the Italian folks(Pedersoli) can do we can Wink I will soft solder a rib bit when the breach plugs are finished with liner and the clean out screw, photo show my cal 12 Pedersoli perkusjon shootgunbarrel."

That is how I did mine.  The remaining rib you cut off the breech section will match perfectly.  The idea in the book to make one plug that has an integral rib and keys in to the other plug would be very time consuming to make.  The matting on the rib would not match the barrel either.

I was going to say - "like mine" but not true, mine is at least twice as deeply laden.

Hi Guys, and thank you Angus!
Stock shaped, if you are familiar with rotary files(I have used it for many years on metal and wood) its handy around the lock plates see Mr. Brockway use it to ;) dont blame me if its run over hehe.

 I hate to interupt this double gun love fest, but you knowledgable guys do remember that it was the flint double guns poor performance that inspired the invention of the percussion cap.

It is probably just my observation, but I think that if a shotgunner misses a bird, he simply buys a new more expensive gun.  And THAT is why the percussion ignition system was invented.  Couldn't be the shooter.
