• Interesting finds

    So picked up a couple of interesting pieces at an LGS a couple of towns away. Had to have them "just because."

    First one is a Jukar caplock black powder pistol, .54 caliber. Missing the rear sight, but otherwise intact and functional. Cost me all of fifty bucks.
    I figure for that price even if it turns out to be a wall hanger then it's worth it.

    Second piece is a CMC four-barrelled percussion cap pepperbox type pistol, .36 caliber. Completely intact, completely functional and at the whopping cost of one Benjamin. Again, if nothing but a wall-hanger it would have been worth it. Kinda looking forward to shooting this thing just once to see how well I can shoot a firearm with a miserable trigger and no sights at all. Should be fun.

    Well, that's all for now folks. Just wanted to drop in and see what was going on...

    Black powder and ball may be the only thing people can shoot nowadays due to the ammo panic. Primers are going for twice their price or more.

    Bad ass. That first gun sounds really good for reinactment. I do a few, I would love to see pictures.

    The pepperbox is a cool novelty, especially for that cheap.

    Nice finds.

    I would be happy to provide pics. All I need is a direction in which I should send them. I remind you, the Jukar is rough, but for fifty I couldn't pass it up. The CMC really looks sweet. I'm not a reinactor or anything like that. Just a guy lucky enough to have all the "normal" firearms he's interested in and now out and about looking for the "weird and the wonderful." I'm not a specialist or an expert in any type or style of arm. Just out there looking for "cool" pieces. That being said, there's always room in my safe for a C.O.P. .357. ;)
