My friend picked this up today at a local pawn shop. I'll be taking it home with me and pretty it up.

How does the grip feel on that pistol? It looks like it might be uncomfortable.

I agree they look that way Ron but they're actually comfortable.

Thank you for that information!

I had a black powder pistol with a steep angle to the grip like the one pictured. It was not uncomfortable, but the reach to the trigger was very long. I had to shift my hand position for cocking and then for firing.

I thought the barrel looked a little crooked! I'll have to do a little inletting but a lot of hogging out of the lock so the drum sits deeper into the lock. Quite a bit of tang sticking out of the wood inletting due to the drum and lock interference.

I have always liked the pistols like GRRW made back in the day, still available and like everything else they have become pricey.

Protruding lock screws were also trimmed today. This was BEFORE I got to them.

6-1mm nipple thread was cleaned up as it had a snug spot. Now it installs clean and smoothly.

Well over the past 2 days I took some time and stripped the barrel down and browned it. I'll install a fresh nipple, then move onto the stock and get the finish removed.

Howdy folks
 Does anyone have a spare nose cap for one of these pistols? I have a .45 cal. here, but the nose cap is missing. Actually, while restoring it, I lost (misplaced) it. My cap has 2 holes up through the ramrod channel for the attaching screws that hold it to the barrel through the fore end of the stock Embarassed I've torn my shop apart, can't find it. I'm sure the second that I buy one it'll turn up?  headslap Murphy's Law. Exclamation
Thanks:
Stoney

 Thanks buddy, and YES, they do get bad press!!!! I NEVER had an issue with any Spanish OR Italian made gun that I own. This pistol would be working fine, if I had just been more organized when I disassembled it 3 years ago. I found everything BUT that nose cap? I refinished the stock, Reworked the entire lock assembly,and had our Machine Shop Teacher rework the barrel and make a complete new tang/breech plug assembly. The only thing left to do is find that nose cap and reassemble the gun. I was a machinist by trade, as well as a knife and Black Powder accoutrements maker. I used to sell here on this site. you'll find reviews of my work in the Blacksmith, Shooting Accessories, and Muzzle Loading Craft forums. Look for anything having to do with Stoney, or Two Feathers. Thanks for the post.
God bless:
Stoney

Thanks Buck...just what I'm looking for. Is there a specific gun I have to ask for, or is it just generic Jukar .45 Perc. pistol?
Thanks again:

Thanks again Buck, but I only need the nose cap. I checked your link and all they sell is the whole gun kit? I tried looking for parts, no dice. Thank you though.
