This is the final video covering the patchbox on my Track of the Wolf Bucks County flintlock rifle kit. In this video Ill make and install the actual lid release button. Ill be making the button out of a big, old wood screw. In fact, this was a butt plate screw from a British SMLE rifle.
BTW, This will be the last flintlock build posting I'll put on this board. I realize that the readership of this board has a much stronger interest in black powder shooting than in building flintlocks. For those of you who are interested in the rest of the build, you can check the on-going thread in the "Gun builders' bench" forum on the Traditional Muzzleloaders Forums site:http://www.muzzleloadingforum.com/fusionbb/showtopic.php?tid/286832/
