    How do you normally clean the flash channel after a shoot? Do you scrub it out every time? I use black powder bore solvent and a pipe cleaner.

    I've heard about people having their Smiths drilled and tapped to fix the problem. Does the Pietta Smith Carbine suffer from the same defect?

    I use the six foot rule, if it looks good from six feet away it's good enough.

    There are no commercially available patterns, everyone who makes quality CW leather gear has original equipment to work from.

    Good luck with that, I can't find a Euroarms mainspring anywhere. Although I would think that anyone with basic gunsmithing skills could make a different (Pedersoli) mainspring work.

    At that rate an American made Lorenz would have to sell for at least $3000 for the gun maker to see any profit.

    Have you ever heard of anyone putting a Lorenz together with parts from the Rifle Shoppe? Looks like about $1400 in parts, plus however many hours of finishing and fitting.

    I use a Lee .575 mold, which cast something very close to a traditional minie. I lube them with a mixture of beeswax and mutton tallow and then run them through a .575 sizing die. And 60 grains may...

    I recently spoke to Zimmerman, he still offers the working primer system. It sounds like there's no practical use for it besides being an interesting historic curiosity.

    Good advise, I have two from the Pedersoli silver line, the two band naval rifle and the musketoon. They are evidently very close to originals; good shooters too, I skirmish with them every month.

    It sounds like these boots might work OK for a rag tag Confederate from Tennessee. I think I'll give them a try. Thanks to everyone for the helpful advise.
