Since restoring/rebuilding my flint pistol, I've been thinking about building one from scratch. I mentioned it to my son and now he's been pushing me to do it. I've got a line on another "Bill Large" barrel and there's a dandy piece of Nebraska walnut sitting in the shop begging to be made into a stock. I'm not going to get in any big hurry on this project and since my son is pushing me, I plan on involving him in quite a bit of the build. At 27, it's time he figured out how to do some of these things.:way: I had a bit of time today and decided to get the ramrod pipes made. I could have bought factory made for 20 bucks but for an hours work and some scrap sheet brass, they are done. Plus the satisfaction of building them is a bonus! I'll probably make the trigger guard next.
