Finally got out to shoot it today. 44 cal round ball - .015" greased patch - 40.0 grains 777 - magnum #11 cap. Wind was blowing like crazy but I still managed this @ 50 yards.

I aimed right at the center dot so it's a bit low, but that's an easy fix with a file.

I'm WAY happy with it!!! SW :jmp:

I really like the deep hammer recess. No "cap measles" on my mug at all. Got some on my arm though. I thought deer flies were chewing on me, but it was cap fragments. No damage - I'll just wear a sweatshirt next time.

People talk trash about Spanish guns, but this lock and barrel from Spain are just fine!

And having never taken my measurements, kaintuck made the stock to fit me just right!!

If dear, sweeeeeet Britney ever orders a rifle, I'll take the measurements for him! Might take a couple tries to get them just right!! :bigrin: :rotflma: :rotflma: :rotflma: :jok: SW

Well.....that just leaves Lindsey Lohan for me to measure..... :roll:

Guess that's what I deserve........

I just wanted to say, that was the last cherry or walnut rifle I intend to make, it gets me and tomtom noses real trouble, I worked on it mostly OUTSIDE the shop, but I had to clean the shop out every time I work on it......this was cut from moms HUGE cherry tree that was downed (split)from the ice storm thru Kentucky in 2009(?).......my only apology was I didn't have a left lock for hogger :-?
I have 30+ boards from the logs beneath the plank wood cut...
I am really happy tho you guys like your riffles.

I think I will shoot this current build, I haven't ever shot much that I build......I need to slow down and enjoy my hobbies more!!!

You guys encourage me with the stories and pictures!!! :jmp:
Keep posting please!!!

My oplogy on misstating woods used......I get cornfused on my builds sometimes....the Lexington rifle is #14 :kap:

Got to mention.....that was a hard piece of walnut!!....I made the sights, and nose cap, I think from a RR spike.....the BP was altered to have less sweep, and that TG was worked and worked to get smooth.....the let off worked out nice, I aged it all, and made hogger a "working mans rifle"
The parts for barrel, and lock ARE good.....I am proud you like it, I would call it a Tn mountain rifle....from the backwoods workshop of tomtom.....handmade by a ol fart..... :crzy:
Take care, and have fun with it.......love to have a photo with you and the dawg in the teddy Roosevelt pose :bigrin: .....or better......you, the dawg, and preppy daughter......on the front porch, in rocking chairs.......I wood frame THAT and put it on my wall!

How about making him a mirror-image southpaw caplock rifle ?
THAT would make him a happy camper :-)

Well, this one is a left handed, right sided caplock :crzy:
The cheek piece and set up is left....but I used his lock and barrel.... :kap:
See...he sent me a kit rifle to slip together....and I didn't tell him, but tomtom said use some of my stuff, and a wood stock set I had, and make a southern man rifle....and she's one of a kind!!!!
Kinda like hogger :jmp:

I never told him, but Britney o cow, had this rifle hanging over her bed for a while...... :bull: :rotflma: :lol
