I haven't had a cap n ball for a while but recently picked up another 58 Rem army. I have worn out 3 BP revolvers over the last few decades and what always seemed the biggest pain to me was putting the grease over the ball, very messy, you end up wiping your hands on your pants and by the end of the day you look and smell as bad as your gun. I happen to have a supply of large syringes (60ml) with long ends. It just sort of came to me so I had to try it... filled one half way with crisco and used it to seal off the cylinders, it works amazing. No mess, will be easy to carry and no mess. And did I mention no mess? Insert the end into the cylinder, give a little push, done. I'll make a cap for the end so it won't pick up stuff from the possibles bag. I have been using the tubes the syringes come in to put cigars in for days on the water so now I have about 200 years worth of lube syringes. Cool. Just had to share, haven't had a usable idea for a while.
