    Sounds like I got lucky and didn't waste money on brass black :) It's all good now though , I know how to make steel look like I want . I can appreciate how much store bought sights cost , even if made on a cnc there is still a whole lot of...

    And version 3.0 .... Couldn't find any 12l14 locally so out came the mystery metal from my scraps box , most likely hot rolled mild steel . Not my favorite thing to work with , but beggers can't be choosers .

    I really like my little 94 , it's fun to shoot , fairly accurate and .32-20 is about as cheap as it gets to shoot . But I hate buckhorn sights and that's what it had . I also didn't much care to pay for a store bought sight . Or more...

    I wanted to get some brass black , but my funds are about zero So I dunked the thing in vinager over night to try and patina it a bit . Not so happy with how it turned out , but it's better then a shiny yellow lump of brass on a 114 year old rifle

    Yep , as much powder as you like , a couple card wads and a ball with some udder cream works just fine . Re-sizing the hulls is pretty easy . I forget what size drill bit I used . But all I did was drill the hole in a hardwood block and wack...

    No drama , just didn't look like anyone was interested . The dovetails were a whole lot of work , easy to do on the shaper in theory . Not so easy to get nice perfectly fitting dovetails . If you zoom in you can see the wind age and...

    Let me know the verdict when you get a chance to dig it out and test it . Maybe think of a $ figure as well And if you think it might be of use to you in the future , give it a think and be sure you want to let it go .
