    ml pistol build

    i'm looking for a known ml builder to build a ml pistol for me. I have the caplock action, trigger & breached barrel, but have neither the time nor talent to craft the stock. also, the bolster needs to be drilled & taped for the nipple. i'd discuss style, as i'm not dead set on one or the other.

    AFAIK, fellow board member waksupi IS a craftsman, and used to professionally build frontstuffers for one of the ML gun companies.

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    I just can't do it guys. Arthritis, bad back and legs are kicking my butt. I don't even heat up the shop on cold days, just feel too miserable to do it. I guess I'm a fair-weather builder now.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
