Repeating Black Powder Rifles / Re: Colt Burgess
« Last post by Hawg on November 11, 2018, 11:58:05 PM »
It is doing fine Hawg. I now have a different bullet besides the moose mould that I got from you that I can also shoot out of it. It does better for accuracy with a lighter powder charge. I also found a nice ladder sight that I had tucked away and put it on. I have not installed the tang sight as of yet. I did acquire a good supply of quality musket caps when I had the chance. I even picked up a couple tons of those cheaper reenactors caps and so far, I have not had a single misfire with them.

Cool Beans!!! I have heard nothing good about the reenactor caps til now but if they work in the Sharps they should work for anything else.

Nice.
Maybe time to start a museum, considering what a collection you got.

I've given thought to having a presentation for gun shows.

I used a couple of thin washers in my dragoon. They worked well for me but I took them out when I sold it figuring whoever got it would want to fix it their way.

Yes sir, LonesomePigeon, I am still shooting it once in a while. It is holding up perfectly thus far. However, since I have so many lever rifles, I am always rotating them. So with that being said, it really has not seen enough use for a thorough assessment. It really is a sweet little rifle. Very light it is.

  Most of his ideas are good, but the execution leaves something to be desired. I also don't like loose shims that can fall out when disassembling for cleaning.
