Cap lock to flint lock conversion +
I posted this on another forum and doing the same here to cast a wider net.
I just bought a .32 Pedersoli Kentucky cap lock and in the clean up process found that the bore is very rough. It may clean up but it got me thinking. Ya' that "thinking" stuff resulted in a lot of trouble in the past so I need a reality check - here goes.
Can I mount a .36 flint lock barrel in this stock and then "drop in" a flint lock ignition system? I would keep the trigger mechanism - if it is compatible with the flint lock ignition.
Do I want to contact Greg Dixon, maybe call Pedersoli? Or - and this is what I am hoping for - does anyone have any recommendation relative to the feasibility and sanity of what I have in mind?
Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
