    fiddy cal build.

    i had a hankering for a 50 cal for a while now and decided to make myself a winter project.
    i ordered a dixie hawken flintlock kit, i just spent the weekend taking the rough cut gem, and assembling her for finishing off.



    as held by my assistant.



    started on the sanding and have a fine piece of walnut coming thru.

    I will watch this with eager anticipation
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    now that i am reattached with the 21st century :

    a couple pics.


    rite out of the blueing salts.

    sanded the stock down to 600 grit (coz i had the brass fittings on it at the time and flushed them at the same time) starting to come up realy nice i think.


    not yet sarted on the brass polish yet so still a wee way to go.
