    A Charles Daly 10 gauge SxS made around 1890, then my young American 32 H&R from 1905, and third in line would be my 1917 Winchester Enfield.

    Collecting .32 molds. Please let me know if you have one you don't need, cause I might "need" it!

    NoZombies,
    That Gardner is awesome! I'll bet it's smoking accurate as well.
    Pay no attention to the mess in my shop. My best work comes from chaos!

    My oldest, and favorite, firearm is my 1915 Ithaca Flues SxS 12ga. It is also the newest in my meager collection, having come to me only last week. It fulfills a lifelong yearning for an Ithaca SxS, never thought I'd be able to afford one. But, the right deal at the right time and here it is! And yes, I'm gonna' shoot the bejeezers outta' the old girl! With loads appropriate to her age and constructiiion, of course! And turkey season opens next week, can't wait!

    Mine would be a S&W model 10 manufactured in 1969. Followed closely by a Polish P 64 manufactured in 1975.

    I have a French flintlock pistol, screw barrel, about 1750. Found parts (no wood) in a junk of junk at flea market. I regularly shoot Austrian, German, American, English stuff from post American civil war, and a couple real civil war pieces.

    I've got one of those, Lyman mold shoots great.

    I had it out last Saturday for a vintage military rifle match.

    Probably take it out again this weekend.

    I would love some pictures of your firearms. I really enjoy looking at the older items and the history they went through.

    Lyman mold does work good. My Army daughter shot it and when the big cloud of smoke rolled up she giggled like a kid and wanted to do it again
