    Directions question?

I won't buy it, I will most likely make one specifically for my gun, but the same concept.

    In the auto repair business, direction is always as viewed from the input side of say, an engine and right or left is always as viewed from sitting in the car and facing the front. How are you looking at the gun when you say right and left? I had assumed it would be looking towards the front of the gun with the triggers facing down..?

    i know from my point of view it as such;

    looking down the barrel sights as if to shoot ... the right is to my right, left is to my left ... top is the sights and top flat of the barrel and the under side or bottom is where the ramrod fits in under the barrel and the trigger/trigger guard is located. the back is where the gun touch's my body [cheek and shoulder].

    this is what i term the directions ... if anyone has further info im all ears.

    Thanks Ted. It helps when trying to figure which way to drive the pins in and out, as well as which way to drive on sights!
