Default Anyone Have.....

Does anyone have a jig and safe file for cutting a dovetail in a muzzleloader barrel? If so I'd appreciate it if I could borrow it to put a dovetail in my GM .58 caliber barrel

good old Semisane came through again for me. He told me how to put a dovetail in without a smooth sided file.

A skillset that'll come in handy

As I get older I realize that a gun is nothing more than an assembly of various parts and not something that can't be fixed. With this mindset its easy to work on them. And if I mess up - so what.
