    Little restoration project

    1850's Albright and Son percussion shot gun. I did find a charge in the right barrel, I got it all apart and its ready for a good cleaning today.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Dave, do you use electrolysis for the metal parts?
    Amazing the number of black powder guns found loaded.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Ten gauge is not all that uncommon. Loaded up they will thump you for sure. You have an interesting project there.
    Finished results will need pics.

    Frank I have ajar a 10 g. Only once, with all the problems I have had with my shoulders I sure did not want to add more pain.
