Looks like a nice project. Can I ask did you get kit or by parts separably? I have the time to tackle a project like that just don't know where or how to start.

bought the parts separate from the list on TOTW. the barrel was a "B" weight that they had on the discontinued list in .36 cal., so I bought it. the stock I got at Log Cabin and the lock I bought on GB, because everyone was out of Siler/ Chambers locks.

I would have rather had a .32 cal., but could not find a barrel I wanted. Colerain quit making barrels in .32 cal., which is the brand I wanted, but they are not making them any more.

Good news is that Hornady 000# buckshot is a nice, easy source of balls for a 36....

still waiting on my .36 barrel to come in so I can start. If I pick up a .45 or .54 barrel at the Fair, I may start a different build while I wait

I would like to give this project a try myself - if I could find a similar kit with a barrel already drilled and tapped for a touch hole and liner. That part of the process scares the hair off my head.


Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Keep the progress pics coming! Something I wish I would have done while putting mine together. I took some but usually not..



Jimsdad, the touchhole is easy... Nothing more than drilling a hole in metal and tapping it really...Inlet the lock and once it's in and snug against the barrel mark your touch hole center and throw the barrel in a drill press..


There are far scarier parts lol... Atleast to me..I was sweating drilling through my lock plate through the stock for the lock bolt... Praying I had it figured out right to miss the tang and breech and the hole was going to be straight and actually work...

I still need to figure out how to drill for pins. I did 1 on my entry pipe and got kinda lucky..It worked..But barely. Gotta drill through the stock, metal and back out the stock and it's all kinda blind..And on a not so flat surface...And when you're talking a longrifle everything is pinned..Not screwed like a factory gun..

You NEED to get to Dixon's, man. The seminars there go over all of this. In detail.

Just sayin'....



And while I've yet to build a rifle, I had always thought the process was to breech the barrel, then locate the vent so it's just ahead of the face of the breech. The rest of the rifle is built around the vent, from what I understood...?
