    Caught the bug is right.
    I made a friend a kydex sheath for this Bowie knife he just made and he told me about one he rebuilt that came from an old house in Lancaster built into the side of the mountain that the people would hide in during the Indian Wars.
    He'll be bringing it over for a look today or tomorrow

    Quote: PAcanis.."One of my ball calibers had a pretty pronounced sprue though. I'm not sure it would disappear with a little filing first, but I've never tried either. That's why I like Hornady balls. No sprue. I'm pretty sure it was TOTW's .600 that had the proud sprue, whereas their .595 you had to look hard to see it".

    Hornady and Speer I believe are swaged balls....no sprue. Get a ball mold and pour your own....it's fun.

    Sweet! Always fun to know some of the history.

    One of my cousins has a Charlieville musket that was brought north when my Grandma's family came from Georgia.

    Cool. History is great.

    He also said the house was made of stone (the part you could see and it had a spring in the basement, which is why it was used as a hold up.
    I'll ask him more about it. He's bring the gun over hear shortly

    All I know is he said it is Hawken style with a percussion cap and has German silver inlays and a tube type sight. Not a scope, but something to cut down the glare or something.
