10 Good Black Powder – Rifle & Shotgun Accessories
Traditions™ Muzzleloader Sling
Here's a review of the traditions deer hunter muzzle loader kit building and. Shooting the rifle. I purchased the kit for midway usa it. Was 226 dollars shipped to my door i had. A 45 dollar email rebate from midway usa. Here all the parts are laid out and I'm having a look at the manual. Only one small modification to the stock was required one corner of the lock. Plate interfered with the stock need to be filed out it took about 30 seconds to get a perfect fit. Two small pilot holes need to be drilled. For each of the key plates. All of the barrel parts fit together. Perfectly. Here's a time-lapse view of the complete. Assembly process after all the parts were fitted together. I use paste wax on the screw threads to ensure a smooth fit in the wood in the metal parts by the way this part of the. Video was actually shot while they was disassembling the rifle i later realized i didn't shoot a video the assembly process so i ran the video through an application reverse it so it might look. A little weird. I took a few extra minutes to center the tang on the barrel. Yes I'm using a crescent wrench to tighten the nipple I've since built a nipple wrench from a leftover piece of bar stock i also cut a screwdriver tip. Into it and taped a spare nipple and a spare cap screw to the wrench. The cheap plastic sites are my only complaint so far I've ordered aluminum. Sites from our mc sports comm williams also has sites but you'll have to call customer service and ask for someone in the site's department explain you have a traditions rifle within our desa barrel, and they should be able to fix you up the barrel is so easy to take on and. Take off it will be very easy to clean. I cold-blood the barrel using birch wood casey product it's not as good as. Professional hot bluing but i had the solution left over from another project and it's good enough for this rifle i. Can always have it blue later if i want i also blew the four cap screws for the. Scope mounts the tang and the bolster cap. Screw just remember to work quickly and follow the instructions with the bluing kit. Iol dan whacks the stock using my favorite treatment two parts turpentine to one part boiled linseed oil be sure. To use real turpentine not paint thinner and boiled linseed oil not raw linseed. Oil a good paint store will have these ingredients keep applying this mixture until the stock won't absorb anymore and then wipe it dries apply multiple. Coats of good floor wax and buff between coats more coats of the wax can be. Applied at any time the stock will not be slippery it will be tacky i actually. Use this method on my wood canoe paddles. My first range trip was great fun. The first six shots with round ball or scattered i upped the powder to 55. Grains and the next group tightened I'm. Confident as i shoot the barrel and adjust the load the groups will continue to improve i also shot a few groups of cheap shots. I posed again as i shoot the barrel and adjust the load I'm sure the groups will get better and better. So here's what i like about traditions. Headhunter muzzle loader kit it's inexpensive very simple to build lightweight and for me it has good balance the only thing i don't like so. Far is the cheap plastic sites if traditions were to spend a few dollars more and include aluminum sites they'd get better reviews from everyone who's built this rifle thanks for watching i. Believe this is a great all-around value and it's a great entry-level black-powder rifle safe shooting.

Traditions™ Flintlock Tool Kit
Okay guys just a quick video tradition mount rifle 50 caliber flintlock i did build this from a kit first concern. Right now is the factory rear sight you have your dovetail right here and then it comes all the way back to about here about a two-inch gap this site is. Actually very blurry for me i have a my. Rear sight here and then above it probably about oh over an eighth of an. Inch i have a ghost above that so when i. Go in aim at my target is very blurry i did order a replacement sight that'll drop right into the dovetail and I'm. Just shooting 25 yards today i want to verify how much pan charge to use you. No see how fast i can make it fire how. Slow it will fire you know I'm spraying my shots up and down left and right use the six o'clock cool just simply from you know. That rear sight being so blurry but overall its I've got it firing really fast and it seems to be fairly accurate right now i went coating the muzzle so i. Could take a four ninety round ball and. A twenty thousand spash and just push it down with a little thumb muscle so that's really helpful in a hunting situation but overall gorgeous rifle. Fits like a glove not too heavy and. Later I'm gonna go ahead and show you how well it sparks with this a very cheap flint I'm not even sure the name of it's almost like a very soft rock you could chip it real easy but it does throw a nice hot spark okay I'm not sure. How oh well we can see this in daylight. Give you some different views i see. Get my black shirt in there.
