  2. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Recently acquired this (what i believe to be) percussion lock pistol from my grandfather but unfortunately he was unable to remember who/where it came from. I cannot find any makers marks on it and its good condition leads me to believe it may be a kit gun. I know pretty much nothing about guns...

    So by the first couple of words in my sentence you will be able to tell that I am COMPLETELY new to this whole BP/C&B life. I went ahead and bought one of North American Arms 22CB which takes #11 caps. Now here is where y’all get to laugh, I HAVE NO CLUE WHERE I CAN FIND SOME. FORUM VIOLATION...

    Picked it up today. The RS marking looks original to me but the .caliber and other numbers look quite new. Was wondering what y’all thought. Now I’m new to this, flintlocks especially, and not exactly expecting it to be a original, but any information or insight is much obliged.

    Good Afternoon - I have recently acquired a dog lock musket and I am trying to learn some more about it, specifically a maker and possible production date (range), certainly value would be of interest too. I have included photos of all marks, does certainly seem to be British with the London...

    I have 5# of 1-1/2 swiss I sure would like to turn into a little 3F for my BP revolvers. I see ways to do it on the inferno web but was checking for pointers before giving it a try. Lead balls, explosion proof electrical, and out in an open field a hundred feet away from anything you dont want...

    Hello fountains of knowledge and experience. I want a pair of black powder single shot .50 caliber pistols for a a good price and have mostly settled on the Traditions Kentucky Pistol kit in either flintlock or percussion. It was not easy but I found a place that still has a few flintlock kits...

  12. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Hello banks of experience and knowledge. I have my eye on a nice pietta 1851 navy .36 cal. However, as I looked at it I had a thought. Say, I had it while camping or something and only needed to fire say 2 or 3 shots. The powder is corrosive so I need to clean it but I do not want to wast the...

    Does anyone recognize these markings? This is on an over and under percussion cap pistol which I recently acquired. Any assistance would be appreciated!
  15. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    I am looking for help learning more about this pair of pistols. First, I know very little about flintlocks. My brother-in-law acquired these about 10 years ago and recently gave them to me as a gift. They have many of the same markings and there looks to be writing or Roman numerals across the...

    Hello I am helping a friend get some information on this beautiful old gun from her father's home. Looks like a 20 gauge in size, no marks besides just two little stamps on the left barrell. Seeking any help for information or direction to information. Sincerely Jesse .

    I'm new. My apologies if this is the wrong forum for this. I'm more interested in just knowing the date and model etc. of this black powder pistol than its value. Must be a reproduction of an older one. It was my dad's favorite (but was taken in the last few months and probably sold to a...
  18. Large-Bore/Small-Bore Rifle/Shotgun
    Hi, I heard survivalist Dave Canterbury briefly talk about shooting rocks as ammo in a shotgun (I'm guessing by using a muzzleloader barrel adapter for a single barrel shotgun like a Yildex TK 12 Gauge). Has anyone ever done this? How good are they for hunting? What types of rocks work better...

    New member today, very first post... I recently inherited an Iver Johnson hammerless .32 (I think) 5 shot revolver. Owl is looking forward and there's a leaf spring under the hand grip, so I'm confident it's a black powder revolver. SN B109XX is stamped under the butt and patents are stamped...

    Hello all, Please if anyone has any information on what this gun is, and if it is rare and if it is worth any value? It is double barrel, it has a golden stamp it looks like of a bird on it - possibly a game gun. Has the words 'W Mills Improv'd' on each side of the gun, has a picture of a dog...
