    Too many armchair Quarterback's without even a little money for my fairly priced repro muskets. Your game is over.

    Zouave 58 cal

    Would like to know the actual bore size of your .58cal Zouave? Do you have the mold for it? How does it shoot (grouping at 50yds)? What is the condition of the bore?
    Thanks. (Please email me at eugeneshek@yahoo.com)

    Please specify what you did or had done in order to get your trigger pulls to 2 lbs. That would influence motivation to buy your rifles because work would have to be done on them in order for your guns to be used legally in N-SSA competition. The N-SSA has a limit of 3 lbs for the trigger pull. The rifles you have for sale cannot be used legally in N-SSA competition. Some trigger modifications are much more difficult to correct than others. For instance, if you removed metal to change the full cock notch angle, that involves more than simply replacing a sear spring that has been significantly weakened.

    My Rifles for sale

    1863
    Bore measures .5805”
    Trigger measures 3lbs 11oz with Lyman digital scale and is clean breaking.
    Half cock notch holds hammer when pulled, bore is perfect with no rust, pitting, or roughness.
    50 yard groups are 1.5" with 65 grains 2F and lee HB bullet pure lead.

    Zouave
    Bore measures .5813”
    Trigger measures 3lbs even measured with a Lyman digital scale and is clean breaking.
    Half cock notch holds hammer when pulled, bore is perfect with no rust, pitting, or roughness.
    HYave not shot this one but bore is as above.


    Both locks were dissasembled and all surfaces stoned and smoothed, sear surfaces were squared, mated, and polished.

    Barrels and locks were Devcon SSTL two part epoxy bedded (the expensive stuff, not bondo like the amateurs use)

    "Recrowned barrel, blade front sight mod, refinished and casting marks/lines removed/reblued, williams rear peep. (photos before front/rear sight and refinish work)"

    Sir, can you elaborate on this part of the description? Do you mean that the barrel was blued? What about the other steel furniture, was it blued also?

    Thanks
