    Rob, I could be all day at that site. He is amazing. As a fancier of the old flintlock rifles it really captivated me.
    I stole.....er....borrowed the link and put on my muzzle loading discussion forum.
    That guy is some kinda talented. BTW, the shot with an Altoids box in it gave me a chuckle. Altoids boxes are a sorta inside joke with the muzzle loading crowd.

    Rob thanks for the great links. I am planning on taking a serious look at the first site when I have a few hours to enjoy. For years I planned on building my own flintlock from scratch with the exception of buying a quality lock and barrel. The plan was to wait til I retire. Laughable in that here I am, and so busy I can't find enough time. Used to do a little metal casting so it sure brings back memories and got me going. I am still looking for a high quality birdseye maple blank for the stock. I do have some good ones but they are only long enough for a half stock like a Hawkin style. I think I better find at least 2 stocks because the ambassador put a request in for one also.
    I'm a certifiable tree hugger. (it's a poor mans way of determining DBH before cutting the tree down)

    Paul i hear a guy or two in Michigan have a good stock of them birdseye maple....in fact there be three guys a father and son and a old geyser with a long grey beard and naughty dog. You know all three culprits oh son works a molder so you know he always gets the best stock. Go twist their arms. Tell em its for a good cause.
