The pistol is being sold as used. It was fired with 5 sets of five .490 Hornady round balls to make adjustments for perfect ignition and sight regulation. The touch hole liner that came with an .055” hole was opened up 7 thousandths to .062” The lock pan was adjusted and polished to place the touchhole at the proper sunset position, not at the bottom of the pan which causes a delay when fired. With 35 grains of 3F Goex powder and 3F for priming, ignition was perfect and instantaneous for the last 10 of the 25 shots fired.
Instructions for proper use of the flint knapping rod available at my e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
