Re: building a flinchlock
Chuck Dixon also put out a book about building long rifles. The illustrations are black and white drawings but really help you understand the text quite well. The tips are excellent. Some of the diagrams and tips are how to make tools that will make the job easier, etc. I got Dixon's book before I finished my first. It was a huge help, not only with that gun, but with doing some other things as well,
There program on PCN was the Dixon's Gun Maker's fair. You can probably get a dvd copy from PCN. And is you ever get to eastern PA, put Dixon's on the list of "must" stops. Locks, barrels stocks, and tons of good advice.
