Hockalouis, I don't shoot or collect blackpowder weapons or study the history of them. That being said, I commend you for your dedication to preserving and sharing the history of the weapons you have posted on this site.
Don't let the naysayers ever overpower you passion for them.
I really enjoyed reading this thread.

Well that's very kind of you. The only thing the often inexplicable naysayers do is preclude others on their own site from seeing things. I shared this custom, 1650-1680 Spanish (Miquelet) Lock, .62 carbine just because it is so unique and (currently) rare. And, yes, it's stocked in oak.

Hey Hock, those are some beautiful guns you have been sharing.

This is my birthday present from my wife and my son. My birthday was Monday. They are good to me. This is a Remington 1858. Well it is a reproduction. I have a few others I will post later.

Short-barreled, right? Looks like alotta fun to shoot. There's a reason the '58 frame is so popular!

Yea. I wanted the short barreled one. I have an 1851 with the long barrel. I just got back from the range a few minutes ago. I shot the 1858. I was also testing out the jeep I have been building. I fired 3 cylinders full at 20 yards. Decent groups. Then I moved out to 60 yards to shoot my super Blackhawk. I shot a cylinder full from the 1858 too just for the heck of it. I was surprised that I was able to hit the target. But I did. I would not have won a match or anything. But it is a pretty good gun.

OK, I dont have a pic right now, but I need some advice. I had a thompson center scout given to me because the barrel was rusted almost completely. It is in such bad shape that i would not shoot it, but the wood and the action and trigger guard are in terrific shape. I was wondering if there are any aftermarket barrels available for these and if it could possibly be rebarrelled to .32 or .36 caliber. These are such handy little short rifles that i thought a .32 cal in it would be great and fun to play with. Any advice would be appreciated.
