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.

Can anyone tell be why GB didn't send a team to the MLAIC world long range champs that we're just held in Adelaide Australia? Not a team or even a single shooter?

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.

  Sale: .50 Thompson Center Hawken flintlock
Posted by: woodsman - 21-10-2017, 02:48 PM - Forum: Sales & Wants - No Replies

Hello all,

For sale is my Thompson Center Hawken rifle in .50 calibre. Flintlock ignition with loads of life left in the frizzen and a strong, reliable spark with English flint. Lovely condition with excellent woodwork, brass furniture and clean bore. Features double set trigger, 28" barrel, 1:48" twist and shoots patched ball extremely accurately indeed. Overall a carefully maintained example of a now sadly discontinued rifle, which began life as an $800 American made firearm, not to be confused with the poor quality European Hawkens of recent years.

£250 (firm) face to face, Wolverhampton area. RFD shipping available at buyer's expense.

Thanks for looking!
