I bought a Kentucky smooth bore pistol that arrived in a box just like that. The top was screwed in and the protection for shipping was top notch. I wonder if we bought our firearms from the same person.
No need to name them. I am just complementing the person on the trouble they took to pack so thoroughly.

Ron

What a beauty! I really like the looks of that rifle, especially with that heavy/beefy looking barrel.

Did you say that was 1" across the flats?

Ron, I got it from Mike Lange.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Jon, It's 1" outside diameter but it's only 24" long. It's easy to carry but I will probably need some sort of rest to help stabilize it for shooting over 50 yards.

I ran patches with Remington 40X through the barrel 20 times and then shot it 10 times with "Shoot Out" with 20 gr. 3F and 30 gr. 3F at 25 yards. (5 shots with each.) There was vertical stringing but that was most likely from my eyes having trouble seeing the front sight against the target. I was resting along the side of a pine tree.

I disassembled the gun and removed the rib with the thimbles, rubbed it all down with paste wax, reassembled with Loktite on the screws and anti-seize on the bolster screw and nipple.

He polished the lock and trigger and it is smooth and light. Even using the front trigger without setting it is very smooth and probably only has about a 5 lb. pull.
I don't have any real thin patches cut to shoot the .440 balls so I used the .433 balls with .018 and .020 patches.

I have to scout for turkeys by boat tomorrow and set up a blind Thursday morning so I don't know if I'll get any bench shooting done before next week.

Looks like it is a different fellow than the one I bought the pistol from.

Enjoy!
Ron
