i got it - its a clever latch - i was so concerned about the "prying finger nail" as to be afraid to experiment at all , i love my rifle - she [my wife] will get used to it when she realizes its really here , she just signed for a box - did not open nor even observe the ceremony - she was asleep at the time , ill show her when she asks - kinda like how they act , i have the location picked out im getting brass hangers for her , it is the pride of my collection because i know the man that made this one and am very proud of that fact [just wish we had gotten to shake hands face to face] maybe next year , when we get to come again , we can actually meet , i will start planning for that because it is my wish to be a minnesotan [yes i know im originally an iowan , i can do that too ] to trespass on southern soil with nothing but good intent - and friendship ,

as americans [which is how my grandfather from arkansas raised me ] i learned to respect all of this country , it is after all , all we have when the stuff hits the fan , i am so proud to be friends with all here

:jmp:
You will really like shooting it, it is fast ignition, and lots of smoke and noise..... :P
I think I mentioned in the notes, the additions needed to shoot/clean this type of weapon......a GOOD steel loading rod with bore protector, and a ball puller is needed before you go outside........because we all have had that "moment" when you realizes you just pushed a ball down the bore w/o the powder 1st :kap:

Cleaning pick for the touch hole, ball starter......stuff like that...and a bag for it all.....
I will try to get the box out with the lead and powder horn....it's kinda heavy, and I'm being careful.....I may get my boss to take it in with her little handtruck :roll:
I was told not to lift anything heavier than a dinner plate for 30 days... :ow:

When I can get back into full swing....I will post some pictures of my next rifle workings....a 40cal Burton barreled, cherry stocked "barrens" rifle.....flinter, I love making these things.......

it may be this upcomming weekend........the box is done one the chair....just getting down there...and they are closed tommmorow~

BTW......that gun box might just hold Paris.....it's big enuff, so if you can send her back in it, put in couple of cookies and a bottle of water should hold her in 3 day shipping.....and as much discomfort i have been haveing....the wife will put me outta my misery when she finds out~ but, what a way to go...........

not to stretch a dead thread , but if you follow the last of this one you will note we are discussing shipping box - if ever any of you need just the right one for just the most important piece , get it from track of the wolf - they provide a really terrific shipping container , ive kept mine for future use , it weathered the trip perfectly
