Is that a CVA Frontier?

Pictures would be of great help!

Pictures are easy. Just use photobucket and upload the pictures to your account.

Hi-light the IMG link as shown below, right click and hit copy.


Go to the screen where you type * right here* right click and hit paste.

the crack is on the forarm part where the pin goes through the stock on left side
thanks for fixing the pic still do not understand but im sure with time ill figure it out so do you know anyone who has a stock for this i havent shot it yet was thinking of using it for small game or plinking till i get a stock maybe 35 or 40 grains ffg or fffg i have some old jsg 3f ond 2f app just sitting there im using ffg pinacle for my flint lock hunter and 2f 777 for my encore thought it might shoot pretty good so ill set the sights for 35 probably to squirell hunt ought to be fun i have a 139 acers of farm my buddy owns just me and a few like 3 buddys hunt it so why not give it a try with a 370 maxi 35 grains head shots if it shoots good i would think its a 1 in 48 but not sure might have been a kit gun any INFO from the pics on if it is it a cva frontier i looked on gunbroker but the guns they have as cva frontier have one trigger differant sights the crack was glued and pinned but it was not a nice job but looks like its holding the guy that owned this died years ago was a gift from a buddys mom for christmas she said come here pointed at the dusty gun cabinet said pick one there was two flintlocks in the gun cabinet one was a 45 cal. jukar with long stock and this one i already have 2 50s so i figured why get a 45 when i got everything to shoot a 50 so now its been sitting in my cabinet for almost two years time to play with it

Shooting flinters is pur fun! If the flintlock is not tooooooooooooo slow! If so think about a replacement lock from L&R.

Flinters are only for PRB! That is p/c! I would use a higher charge, about 50-60 grs FFg. Alway take care that the flashhole is free and that there is no moisture at the flintstone. Be aware of the flintstone's positions. If it is wrong no good sparking!

Another tip for loading. Put a needle or a ent pic through the flash hole in the barrel before loading. That prevents the flash channel from getting closed by single powder kernels which can also cause a mis or hangfire.
