Flintlock Rifles / Re: Back on the right path!

Also decided the ultimate projectile for this mini gun(rifle) will be .22 caliber pellets. It will be so much fun that even Dogshirt might like it for reasons other than tightening wire fences.

Haven't downloaded pictures yet, but have been working on it. Got the new breechplug and tang and just couldn't bring myself to drill a 7/16" hole to fit the plug on a .22 caliber barrel. So I cut the threaded part off the tang, drilled a 1/4" hole through the middle. Then I just took a tap to the bore and tapped it to fit a 1/4-20 bolt. Bought a historically correct stainless hex head bolt, bolted the tang to the barrel and welded it in place. Then cut the head off the bolt and that's as far as I have gotten. Need to find a more diminutive trigger guard and a single trigger that looks correct for era and size. Heading into town today and while I'm running errands am going to try and find a board to make the stock.  ;D

Golden spike completes transcontinental railroad
A ceremonial golden spike and the official telegraph message 'DONE' mark the end of six years of labor on a massive scale that included about 20,000 Chinese workers, as the US transcontinental railroad is completed. Once a half-year's journey, the trip from one coast of North America to the other now takes about a week.

I'm beginning to suspect that since my eye surgery apparently helped out some and I've got a little shooting under my belt now, I may be getting a little of my old mojo back.  May retire from any hunting but will be shooting as much as I can.
More power to you, I hope you get back into it.
