Build a rifle Sunday!

I have had this 'Traditions' .50 cal percussion rifle kit sitting in my closet forever,
the kits are nice but nothing really fits correctly and the triggers are alway
spongy at best so some gun smithing was in order, out came the Dremel work
station and the fun began........

is always the most work as they are rough finished with a lot of grinding marks, I take some 2000 grit wet or dry sanding paper and wet sand it and follow up with 3M rubbing compound to make it acceptable.

LOL!, It took the

better part of half a day, had to Dremel everything to fit, put it together to make sure everything fit correctly then take it apart, stain the furniture and blue the barrel . Extra time was spent on the trigger, I had to braze a little here and grind a little there but it is solid, no play like I had initially (the trigger and cam is brass so no welding).

You have a PM and an email.
