  kit made musket
Posted by: cain - 09-12-2017, 12:48 AM - Forum: Black Powder Chat - Replies (2)

Hello all, this is my first post and i start with a question.
Where do i stand legally if i built a rifled musket from a kit or component parts. I see kits available from sources like track the wolf and the rifle shoppe, The only information i can find is that you need to be a registered RFD to manufacture firearms. As far as i can make out, as long as you have a slot on your ticket for the calibre and type of firearm to aquire, then you can get it to the proof house for testing, when it passes proof it is then a firearm and must be on ticket? At what point does it become a firearm during manufacture? when the breech plug is fitted? when the touch hole is drilled?
Although i am not a gunsmith, i am a competent engineer and have re stocked a few muskets and pistols to keep an otherwise pile of spares alive.
My aim is a 1800 pat infantry rifle, baker , useing a Colerain barrel from the states, components from Peter Dyson and Blackleys, Walnut from a local source to me. and my own manufactured parts.
I have all the information and sizes, photos, sketches and drawings to make an accurate replica, and the skill.
I made a Nock screwless lock from an original that i have, marvelous piece of 18c engineering. I intend to use it in a replica Duke of Richmond musket, 
Just want to make sure everything is above board and legal before i start anything.

November is  when game shooting gets into full swing  both pheasants and partridge will now be strong on the wing  showing some good high shots .Shooting with black powder be it muzzle loader or breech loader is worth 1 pheasant shot with black powder to several shot with nitro 
Are there any members who shoot game with black powder lets have your views ?

I am having to replace the woodwork (woodworm) from the muzzle end to the third barrel band, fortunately the remaining wood is restorable.  
What joint should I use to attach the new wood to the original stock?

  Beamont Adams repair?
Posted by: NippleKey - 30-10-2017, 03:50 PM - Forum: Pistol - Replies (4)

Good day all.
About a year ago I bought two revolvers from a very well known auction house in London. Both had been in a named collection.
As I live in Scotland and couldn't get down to view them, I requested a full condition report over the phone. The expert rang me back and we discussed the Beamont Adams revolvers particularly as there were two and he suggeted I go for the one I eventually bought, I also bought a Deane Adams but only going from the catalogue information and the very good photographs.
For complex reasons, I have only just received them and to my distress, I find both have quite significant mechanical faults (it's much too late to grumble to the auction house, annoyingly).
I can probably make a stab at repairing the Deane Adams myself as it's a simpler mechanism and it just feels like a worn sear nose and/or bent but the Beaumont Adams is; firstly, more complicated; secondly, has a more significant problem and thirdly, is in very much nicer overall condition so I would rather leave it to someone who knows about these things.
So, the question is, do you folk know of anyone who does repairs to percussion revolvers but doesn't necessarily have a digital footprint.
I know of Peter Dyson and others whose names come up on google including some guys over in Newton Stuart who don't answer emails or return phone calls but has anyone any knowledge of chaps who diddle expertly away beneath the radar? It'd be great if one such was in the borders.

Photo Smith Fowler information
Posted by: mmcalc - 25-10-2017, 05:29 AM - Forum: Shotgun - Replies (3)

I have a flintlock fowler and I am wondering if anyone can shed light on its age. The lockplate is engraved SMITH. There is no engraving on the top of the barrel. The underside of the barrel is proofed with pre 1813 London proofs and is stamped "TWISTED STUBBS" and the number 25. The vent is gold bushed.  The engraving on the plate seems to be very similar to guns made by William Smith. Thank you for any information that you can pass on.

Mike
