Finally got the Williams peep sight securely installed on the .54 New Englander thanks to a post by Idaholewis. Had to install a taller front sight, a Skinner. Laser bore sighted the rifle at home. Loaded the rifle at the range using round ball and 70 grains of Black MZ, a drill cloth patch and Frontiers Anti-Rust and Patch Lube.

The rifle shot about four inches low at 50 yards. Got the sight adjusted vertically but the rifle strung the shots horizontally. Before firing each shot i always install the ramrod. i've run into this before with Tupperware stocks: That stiff ramrod causes the flimsy stock to flex: Fired the rifle without the ramrod and all balls hit the 2 1/2 inch bullseye.

At 78 yards i hit the 6" steel gong every shot. Come on Fort Sill conventional muzzleloader season. i'll just hunt without the ramrod in place.

What a difference that peep sight makes.

No ram rod would be a PITA.

Falcon,  Glad my old post inspired you to install a Peep on your New Englander! It really does change a Rifle, the way we shoot them anyway :rtup A Peep sight is TRULY the next best thing to a Scope. 

I really like my New Englander after the Few Modifications i did to it, The Trigger Job i did was 1 of the Biggest helps to me, I am so use to really light Set triggers that it is nearly impossible for me to Shoot a Stock single Trigger well. While there is Nothing fancy about the TC New Englander, They are an Honest, Solid Little Rifle.

i drew a permit for 23-25 January. Got sick on 21 January and cancelled out. The weather was terrible anyway with high winds.

That's the way it goes sometimes. Will enter the Fort Sill elk draw this year.
