Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Kentucky Pistol

#1 Post by shoggoth80 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:15 am

Picked this up this afternoon. Been on a muzzleloader kick. Might need to realistically slow it down...but the getting has been good. It's a Jukar, likely made from a kit. Kentucky percussion pistol. It was marked as a .44 on the tag. I have read nothing of Jukar making kits in less than .45 yet (though sure they exist), and .45cal conical projectiles start in the bore easily. The bore is fairly nice in this one too. Barrel is in the white. On the fence about whether I should brown the metal or not.

That shiny barrel is asking to be browned. Otherwise it looks good. Let us know how it shoots.

Yeah. I think browning is gonna be the way to go. At least someone did the polish work for me. Might brass black the fittings too. Hoping to get a change to hit the pit between this weekend and the next. Action on it is rather smooth, so I gotta give the builder a little credit. Lol.

I realized I didn't click notify for replies. Thanks for the input guys!
