Traditions™ Kentucky .50-Cal. Percussion and Flintlock Rifles
We have here is a Kentucky rifle picked it up the other. Day it's a 50 caliber it's a thirty. Three and a half inch barrel she's a she. Got quite a stretched over this one and. They're very well. The price is pretty damn it i think i. Paid around this one was 360 before tax. And i got the so called wholesale over. There I'm going to see their name who. Knows but i was really taken with the. Was this thing was put together you know. For the price it's a beautiful wood and. I always liked the older full woodstock. Rifles as you can see it's a flintlock i. Haven't put a flint in it yet that's not. Bad you know the fit and finish on this is pretty decent as if you know for what i paid for it the only part that is. Hurting is this figure i mean what it. Takes to make a trigger take that's. Pretty pathetic but strangely enough the. Release is quite decent line so i kind. Of later I'm going to do something with this take it apart the mechanism is. Quite simple I'll push that i think so. It's all i tell you i mean that's about the only bad thing i can say about it. Prior to shooting it of course that's. Quite happy with that chaparral rifle it. Was turned out to be a turd but this is. A real nice looking gun i have a fine. Log pistol by traditions and fires great. And it's quite accurate I've looked up. At some comments and some of the things. That are whining about this rifle. Huh some folks are saying it shoots slow. Well has this high-tech actually front. Sights i wouldn't take much to file that down to raise the barrel and it's only. Stamped in there you could like what i. Probably might do if it is off a lot is. I'll just get a in italian front sights. A form the lineman or something a little. Fit in their rare sight it is a bit of a. Turd but again you know for what you pay. For this thing I'm not going to I'm not going to hit this stuff to urge 400. Meter shots which is all I'm going to be. Doing whether to line your up at 50 you. Can make the adjustments with a file in those plain cites traditions does have. An adjustable rear sights like a boat. Spring loaded job with a screw in the back that you can adjust your elevation. With it be as simple as replacing that i would probably fix up all your problems real easy and you know it's going to fit. The with the read size dovetail on. It's got another 'full brass buck play. On it and it goes all the way up here. The fit and finish you know is actually. Quite nice the italian articles. Tend to be better in that regard this. One is pretty good you know for what i paid for this gun i am quite pleased. With the overall quality of it you know. For less than 400 bucks well then you. Now it's pretty nice that another one i. Forget the name of it but it's covered with brass the brass in here pat's box. The brass going up here so six thousand. Seven hundred dollars and I'll tell you. The finish on that one isn't half as. Nice as this one here for some reasons all nice and shiny pat's box the hinges would be here. It was pretty crappy fit there so i. Looked at this i has a really long rifle. And i was quite taken with it so i. Brought it home so now i could do now is. I think we'll just have to take it out. And do some shooting look so your great. Day for shooting sun's out it's not. Wendy. Hmm. You.

Okay this is a peter sloly pennsylvania. Long rifle 45 calibers flintlock little. More complicated in the springfield rifle musket as far as the ignition system, so we have triple f go x maximum. Charge in this is 38 so I'm going to go. A little less than that okay take you. For 40 caliber ball and I'm a hatch that. Is 0.005 thickness makes it fairly easy. To get it down the barrel okay it ran. The little guy home i use go x by the. Way instead of pirate x because you get a faster lock-up time the pirate x tends to have a real delay between the pan going and then the actual charge firing. Okay bullet seated it's ready to roll. Now i need to put some i use four x go x. Here in the channel in the pan. And let's see we can get hopefully not a. Flash in the pan double set triggers as. Soon as you set the back trigger basically brushing the front one sets it. Off more insights and there we go. Petter Sullivan sylvania long rifle.
