Corey, that big package of yours just came in.

First thing i thought is that the fly was sticking. I pulled the lock and that Sear does not look like the correct cva sear. I am going to play with the Drum first and get that taken care of first before i do anything else with it.

ok its deff. the wrong sear. I borrowed one out of my traditions and now it works. I have to adjust the triggers now.

I loaded the breech end with powder and installed the drum, i am going to put the rifle in a vise and blow what ever the hell is in the barrel. It feels like steel to me.

Barrel is unplugged!! I just filled the drum with 3f pyrodex, capped it and a stream of smoke came fuzzing out the barrel. I went and got a ball and loaded it with 40g 3f pyro and loaded the ball without a patch. BANG! Laughing this was an easy fix.

Just a tip Corey,Next time you take the lock apart, its a good idea to put the sear spring on the right way lol! It was on upside down and wasnt putting pressure on the sear.

Shes almost fixed up bud!

Lot of work done already! Stripped all the bluing, All of the metal parts have a coat of LMF browning solution on them. Polished the brass, Cleaned up the internals on the lock. Even spread open that crack by the lock area and filled it with wood glue and clamped it down until it was dry. Going to get some Acraglas to fix that solid.

So far so good!

Nothing to take pictures of yet lol. The browning process will take close to a week. Its turning color now, its dark gray, almost black. It will then turn reddish rust brown.

I will take a look at my brothers and see what sear we need for it.

I noticed there were was a good deal of rust when i had the drum pulled so i am thinking that it was a "Rust plug" that was preventing the powder from being able to fill the drum. Shes workin now!

I glued that crack in the stock too. I will buy some stuff to make sure it doesnt crack any more.

Woke up this morning and the barrel has a very nice thin layer of rust! I'll be wiping it down in a moment and applying another thin coat of LMF.
