Finally got down to it!

Traditions Kentucky .50cal percussion. Now I will have a sidearm for hog hunting! I'll call it our little trapping pistol when Floyd and I go out checking traps in the mornings.

I'll do my best to match the stain and browned furniture to my St.Louis Hawken rifle.

Well the St.Louis Hawken rifle took me 1 1/2 months of slow work. This should take about a week! LOL no, im kidding. Since I will attempt a build video, it will slow me down even more.

You'll notice that custom builders often charge as much for a pistol as they do a rifle..cause as they say....they have same components as a larger rifle but in a smaller package which makes the work a bit more difficult............or so I've been told.

yep! it depends on the details and added embellishments, long guns have a bit more surface area.... both take about the same amount of work and time....
