Of most interest--
1.Memorize the Cyrillics on the receiver , one day you will run across one--;)
2.Cartouches on the stock, passed by many a hand, to make sure servicibility.
3. Scope--and sights--/Sight Picture--
3.1--Took Pic Off Center--shows design-- it's off!-- reminds the shooter that he does not have the proper sight picture.(Parallax built in?)--Ingenius.
4.Action smooth as glass--totally different from Field Issue--

Looking into some local contacts on a Pig Bomb Safari--They are Here!--

Very interesting Ax, was it possibly one of the sniper versions, would explain smoother action and passing through more hands/inspections. Very Nice Indeed

Did the scope come with the rifle or did you add it later? Again the scope suggests a sniper or sharpshooter version.

I will have to pick up a few more boxes of that PPU ammo along with another half dozen Zwickey broadheads, still quality and still razor sharp right out of the box. Forgot to order the glue on tapered adapters so I can use them on the aluminum and carbon arrows with screw in inserts.

Came origional, spotted it in a pawn shop--1944--the Cyrillics,as I said-- --Sniper-

Scope--1953--someone pawned it as "Junk"--because they didn't know-- the scope--was the only problem, took it apart to replace the leather washers--well worn--

See--"Enemy at the Gates"--;):)

Jeff:)

They are here, not 10miles out--down in the areas of dense cover, very smart almost always a Night Hunt--they lay low during the day.

Looking back, to Georgia/Fla., c'72--the Russians--tusks from 3-5inches, mean as hades,black/Red hair--

Eventually communes with domestics, and migration North and NW--thru 'Bama--the ones showing up here have red hair, and all in between, some 5 " tusks showing up--150--300lbs average.

Bolder,park about 15 miles out--they just prance in--feed on whatever , snort at humans--thence in evening leave.
They are very smart--

Two fellows got 4 two weeks ago, one with3" Tusks, barbeque the next day, and a Pig in the Ground, rest wen to needy families.

I fully suspect--by genetics the ones that end up in Md will be 3 ft high, 400+ pounds and at least 5 inch tusks--these ae the Eurasians (Russian)--born to cold country adapt, and thrive.

Meanwhile--probably around 1Million here in 'Bama.

Plant--Jim Bowies knife was made from a meterorite---

Black Powder:

KNO3--Potassium Nitrate
S--sulfer
Charcoal----Willow 'be 'Tha Best.

Reduce to the finest----seperately.

After applying the Formulae'-mix and dry on a flat sheet-dry-in the sun.

Break up the mess into 'Gauze"--metal strainers which seperate the grains--F,FFg, and FFg the finest,---F is cannon, FFg Rifle, and FFFg is pistol.

Tumble the grains in graphite, till smooth--Package.

Primers are copper cups with mercury fulminate-and others--just a brush all round inside.--careful!!-dry and coat the inside with varnish--thin coat--

Good Shootin!--:)

Ax: I didnt know Bowie's knife was made from meteorite iron. Good stuff wouldnt mind finding a chunk or two.


Been looking at black powder revolvers for awhile they just look fun to shoot, the Navy or Army model 44's replica. Something with adjustable sights. Used to have a Cabelas brand hawken in .50 cal was fun and accurate to shoot with patched round balls and about 40 grains of powder. Could shoot her all day with that light load and it was surprisingly accurate with the round balls. Could still get 1 to 1 1/2" groupd at 50 yards, around 3-4" at 100 yards not bad for a round ball. Mine was percussion.

Used a conical bullet and 90 to 100 grains of powder for hunting loads for deer was plenty accurate out to 100 maybe even 150 yards. could getr just over 1" groups at 100.


I wouldnt mind getting a flintlock to play around with. Been looking at the Kentucky rifles in kit form, I also like the Lyman great plains rifle but cant remember if it is available in flint-lock. Havent decided on caliber with .45 or .50 I could hunt deer and plink. The squirrel rifles in .32 or .36 have always intrigued me too though and would be fun target/plinkers and of courser small game and garden pest guns. Not as easy as just pulling out the RWS pellet rifle but I like a challenge and have always liked playing with the more primitive weapons be they flintlock, bow or blowgun.
