  1. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    This has been in the family as long as I can remember and was displayed with a Civil War Calvary sword so I'm guessing that it's mid-1800s, but can anyone identify the maker that belongs to this mark?
  2. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Looking to find any information on this rifle. I have been researching it on and off for weeks and really can’t find any accurate information on it other than the R.B. Stamp comes from a known maker. The gun is broken and does not shoot but I would like to know more about it before I hang it up...

    I recently purchased this muzzleloader from a antique store for next to nothing. The guy I purchased it from said it is some sort of trade rifle. It has a octagonal to round barrel and it looks like there might be a crown above N. Ashmore. There is a aluminum band stamped with H and the letters...

    I'm not a shooter but received this muzzleloader pistol as part of an inheritance. Can someone tell me what I have? Thanks.
  5. The Ask the Pros & What's It Worth? Forum
    Hi everyone. I am new to this forum. I'm the President of a local historical preservation society and we recently had several items donated to us from an estate. The family told us that this gun came to our town (Rochester, IL) in the mid-1840's. I cannot find any writing on it. The shield on...
  6. Technical Questions & Information
    I've recently installed a picatinny rail system on my shotgun, but I found a set of sights I would really like to mount, but sadly they are built only for vent rib application. Is there such a thing as picatinny to vent rib adapter? Is there another set of identical sights that would work? I've...

    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...

    I inherited this Tryon Muzzleloader many years ago and don't know much about it. If someone can give me guidance or value, it would be much appreciated! Most Tryon Philad A do not look like this one. It also has an engraving of RB and hunting engravings on side. Thanks in advance!

    Well, since I didn't get the muzzleloader 100% ready before the late muzzleloader deer season, I decided to rabbit hunt with it. Today, with muzzleloader in hand, I found Bugs sitting there waiting for me. The load: .50 cal PRB with 65 grains of powder. A clean heart shot. I didn't take any...
  11. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Hey everybody I have been eyeing an old flintlock at an antique store, I'm kind of in love with it. Unfortunately I have not been able to find anything resembling it on the web. It also has no proof marks that I can find, except for a moon and star motif on the lock. The barrel is extremely odd...
  12. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    Hello everyone, I am just getting into muzzleloading (besides a little 50 cal cannon I made). I'll be shooting Hodgdon Triple Seven powder and Hornady Great Plains bullets, for now. Anyway, my real question: What is the ballistic coefficient and approximate velocity of those bullets (I'll...
