I havenít decided yet. I think Iím gonna go with whatís most historically accurate. Problem is, I donít know what that is specifically. Iíll have to do research and figure it out.

I dont know, What do you guys think? Should I stain the barrel? It looks pretty good already after staining the stock and other wood parts.

What do you guys think?

Its done. I got the look I wanted to get, and it functions great.

All I need now is the #11 percussion caps. I got everything else.

Ill get a video when I first shoot it.

Probably a more authentic look would be to brown the barrel. Some guys don't do anything and "leave it in the white". But be forewarned it will rust very easily with out any oil.

Thanks for the forewarning. To be honest, I already browned it. I actually went out shooting it today for the first time. I didnít get a video, and I have a good reason.

First, you need to know that I replaced the #11 nipple with a musket nipple. That way I could use the musket caps I already have.

Now the interesting issue, it kept misfiring. I had to remove 5 balls because it kept misfiring. I thought there was an obstruction in the nipple or something. After through examination, I discovered no obstruction. I then decided to try a different type of powder. Instead of the triple seven FFG Pyrodex powder I normally use, I used RS FFG Pyrodex powder a friend gave me. It started firing perfectly. No problems.

I can only conclude that it was the triple seven powder that was the problem. Iím still scratching my head about it, though, because that powder works fine on my in-line muzzleloader.

Regardless of the issues source, at least itís working now, and at least I now know how to use a ball remover!
