I think that top one has more thrusts per squeeze...

Start shopping, deals are out there.

Top one cost $50, Second from top cost $100. Stainless in the middle was $125, and the blued one on the right was $100. All of those were unfired, except the Ruger, when I got them. Three were unfired until this weekend.

Be warned, if you do start shopping, the good deals just won't stop coming!

BP guns are fun, but I wouldn't want to shoot five at one time. Thats a lot of guns to clean. They sure get peoples attention at the range when you fire them though.

Ah ok so they just have the hate on for AR15's

Those cap and ball revolvers are fun to shoot. I have had a 1860 Remington .44 for about 25 years. My son and son-in-law has a lot of fun shooting it. I am looking for a Colt copy now.

Sweet

I love Muzzleloading

Nice collection
My club is predominantly BP shooters....rifles/shotguns/ pistols et all
They are very keen for me to try eveything and they do NOT mind me shooting my evil black rifle
In fact one of them has just ordered an AR I gotta take some responsibilty for that

I intent to shoot in a BP competition soon and I have already persuaded one of the members to coach me in the fine art of BP pistol shooting

Great pic

cheers

I don't have one, but a guy at a range let me fire his Remington Rolling Block in (I think) 44-100 BPC. Holy shit, that thing kicked. Pretty good shooter too. I would not want to be on the receiving end.

It only holds 10 rounds, loads from the top of the reciever (you can see the "door" in the picture). The magazine is non-removable.

Kindof reminds me of a Garand that way.

EDIT: You can see them on DSArms Website.

That '76 Winnie is the shit. I have the "standard" SASS setup (a pair of Vaqueros in .45LC, a Marlin "Cowboy" 24", and the Baikal sxs). I shoot regular smokeless out of 'em, but once I start reloading, I would like to use BP substitute. BP is a HOOT!

I should take some of mine out next weekend.

Yea, but they don't smell so sweet when you're done.

Anybody know where I can get my Sharps fixed in SoCal? The spring is broken and needs replacing and I would like to have someone check the rifle out to see if it is safe to use as I don't think it has been fired since the late 1800"s.

The first 1 1/2 weeks of rifle season for deer is muzzle-loader only. Muzzle-loaders are definitely fun.

ETA: I really like the Clean-Shot because there is very little smell and I do find it easier to clean afterwards.

I can smell that powder burning from here.

If I were you I'd visit gunboards.com and post an inquiry in the Mannlicher, Steyr, & Blackpowder Cartridge Rifles forum. A post in the US weapons forum may also elicit a response. And I'd stay away from smokeless loads since your gun is original. Risking a kaboom isn't worth it.

Shoot real black powder. Their is a difference! I get my black powder via mail order.
For a real blast, try a black powder shotgun! Those are fun to shoot. Most originals are in bad shape, so I would shoot a reporduction (reminds me of another gun I need to get down the line).

For the '76 I use 45-70 cases cut down on a lathe to 45-60 length. I then run the cases into a 45-60 sizing die. I soft cast the bullets and lube them with SPG. Load with 60 grains of 2FG and a Federal Large Magnum Rifle Primer. 45-60 is a cross between 45-70 and 44-40.

The '76 needs a lot of work, one of these days, I am going to get the bbl re-lined. I need a gunsmith to make a custom liner to the original specs for it. Then I want to send it away to have it properly restored. All it takes is $$

I think the gun would be worth more properly restored (Not refinished).
I shoot everything that I own.
