Dang, Sam, I'm gonna need to pop some popcorn for all these videos. I'm beginning to love the WheelLock! It could turn into a Love/Hate project.
Thats a cool old matchlock Bruce. I might not be able to build it, but thats my standard finish on metal.
Nah, it just ends up lookin like it. I have a pocket knife that I lost in a horse stall that looks just like that.
I can play. This was my Grandfather's. He used to use it to shoot cats on construction sites in NY city back in the 20's or maybe 30's. The story he told was he would shoot nails out of it.
I guess this is the modern equivalent....not the same somehow...
Thanks for posting Poolshark. There must have been a big cat problem back then. I wonder how he found out it will shoot nails? Just slide a nail in ontop of the lead? Isnt it an Unwin and Rodgers 22 cal? Its cool!
Unwin, yes. I cast some lead in the mold and it seemed to be bigger than 22. Perhaps 25?
