nope, she just needs a taller front sight. 30gr OE at 15 yards still shot high.

10 shot group, 15 yards, 30 grains Olde Eynsford 2fg, .490" Round Ball, .015" Patch. Recoil was little stiff, I actually feel my wrist getting a little sore today. That's to much powder for what I intend to use the pistol for, so I will go back to my normal load of 20 grains Olde Eynsford. Amazing little pistol guys! If you don't have one, YOU NEED ONE! These are a ton of fun to shoot.

I wouldn't do well in a duel using flintlock pistols! Have a friend that made a 50 cal pistol from scratch in flintlock and I got to shoot it once this weekend. I hit the ground in front of the target from 15 yards! I need some work!!
