Or, more plausible, a cigar mount "hold this while I shoot this bastard"

Guys...

Today the thing followed me to the shop again. More oil sanding of the stock but more importantly a decent trigger job. Not that the untouched trigger is horrid but seeing that the tumbler sports one of them small fly jobbies that protects the sear to jump into the half cock notch on it´s way down as the hammer´s dropped....it could sure be improved upon.

Let the basic angle of that full cock notch be just level it down..so said n done.
Difference is quite dramatic. Trigger went from ordinary to downright good. So good in fact that i think i´ll bring the piece with me again tomorrow and time permitting get to try the piece.

Stock tho is coming along. No more of that roughness to it anymore. Smooth does it,and more and more oil..coat by coat,day by day..  =K*

Have given freedom seeds a thought as far as this mammoth caliber of a gun. Thing is,at 18.2mm it is about a deadringer for 12ga slugs.
Hm.

If it has a fly you could add a set trigger to it. Seems kinda funny to me they would put a fly in a single trigger setup.

We need a competition here: who can come up with a plausible explanation to those two dove tail slots on the side of the barrel. The winner will be awarded with an applause.

Seems pretty obvious to me it's for a picatinny rail for a laser sight, flashlight and bayonet )L$

...getting worse by the friggin minute... )L$ )L$



Today was about details. Like the lock for the patchbox for instance. What was still there was..some rust. Handled that with a bit of feeler gauge i trimmed to size.



The thing DIGESTS oil...i´m at like layer 30 or so and the thing still has a craving for more.



Cracked. Indeed. Did a summary today and i´ve glued up 22 different cracks. HELLO!



Thing is hefty,as you´d expect seeing the barrel and caliber at hand. Haven´t put it on the scale yet but a guess is around the 4kg mark. Or just shy of 10lbs.

The thing shows pitting alright,and the rear sight is no exception. Today we got to shoot/try it and indeed..does what it should so right now i´m awaiting some more appropriate boolits.
Doing so i came to reflect on how "eaten alive" the rear sight is why i started to add material and grind away..
The front sight is VERY small too why i´m giving thought to adressing that as well.

FOR a wonderful wonderful day at the range! It ALL went like clockwork,this old 18mm caliber gun included. From a shooting point of view it reminds very much of that former Swedish m/1854 of mine,albeit still just shooting patched 60 cal boolits in it.
It does work,runs like a damn freight train...and just does what it should.

Cleaning the thing out at the shop after we were done told that this thing now needs to be shot with boolits that actually fit. Bore is still a bit rough and i KNOW that will clean up extensively by simply using the thing.





Ah! Yes! A few others were along for the ride too,but more on them in another post.

This old ca 1840´s rifle though..damn this thing is pretty as it gets out in the sun.
