The time between each frame is .04 seconds
So, it'll be .16 secs from pull to shot.

Nice photos Len. Hey, I recognize that priming tool! I think I know how you got it too. Have you heard from Classanr lately?

Hi Mazo, and yes, you're right. I'm in regular contact with Class by email and the occasional phone call.

Nice shooting and guns Len. I have the Harper's Ferry like Richards and a flint lock pistol in .45 cal. I never fired mine yet. Need to buy new flints for them cause I can't find the ones I had. I need to order some from Track. I'd like to have a flint lock rifle but that's not happing any time soon. Hope you guys have fun with them. :)

Hi Dellbert, nice to have you back on the forums (you were away for a while). And you bet we have fun with them flinters! The soy boys go to primeal shouting classes, we older guys go to shooting classes. When I start shooting some neighbors come over and want to try out. And I think one of these .60 balls from a flintlock could easily stop a wild boar in its stride.
