Shooting the 1860 Colt Army. 44cal Black Powder Revolver

I've had my 1860 Army .44cal revolver loaded for 3 months with 20gr pyrodex select since late April and finally took her out to shoot it off and clean it. No rust that I can see, all 6 shots fired off flawless and accuracy was pretty decent at 15 yards standing up, double handing it. I was really surprised with how well it shot. I'll have to shoot it more, I just get tired of casting all the balls since I can shoot them up so quickly.

I just took the still pics off the video camera, nothing fun to watch with a target. Next time I'll set up a little shooting range.

Cleaning Tips and Tricks
When cleaning Goex, KIK, Swiss, Pyrodex, Triple7, American Pioneer, Alliant Black MZ always start with a bucket of HOT soapy water to help break up stubborn fouling and melt/remove patch/conical lube from the barrels rifling.

Soak breech end of barrel in the hot soapy water (Dawn or Murphy oil soap - Pinesol) and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Use an old tooth brush to scrub fouling from nipple area and other areas where powder residue is present.

Remove nipple from barrel and with the correct cleaning jag, attach it to your cleaning rod and with the correct diameter cleaning patch, pump the hot soapy water up and down the bore until your patches start to show up cleaner.
3 to 4 patchs is normally a good start before its time to dump the dirty water out.

A good quality game camera!

A while back my dad actually picked me up a new trail camera when he had heard that my SD card reader went out in my last camera. He said Dicks sporting goods had it on sale for less than half of the original priced sticker.

This was taken with the Wildgame Innovations Blade X6 trail camera. Its very small, maybe the length/width of your hand. Great pictures!

Frontier's Anti-Rust & Patch lube Updated again!

Well, we've got new jars as I had previously stated in another post. Now that I've got things fine tuned with labeling,canning and the product ingredients, I decided to remove the yellow pigment. I only put it in there because it was real pretty yellow and made a nice patch lube.

Yellow additives can leave behind what looks like false rust and so I wanted that out before I sold to much lube. When you sell an Anti-Rust product, you damn sure don't want something in there that can leach out and leave a residue color that looks like a light dusting of dust! So now the new project that's 100% ready to go out the door is a nice Ivory White and will not leave any residue color behind.

I have recently sold a small supply to someone that's testing it for himself first, and afterward, he'll get in touch with me about stocking it on his store shelves in his gun shop. This is a good thing! I try to make a product as best I can, but most importantly, one that truly works. I've bought enough junk in the past and being fed up, had to figure something out for myself in order to be happy and my guns rust free.

Like all new products, its going to take time to sell it little by little until word gets out of how well it works. Anyone off the forums that truly knows what kind of person I am, should have no trouble trusting a product that I make and offer on the market.

Dealers will get a Discount on the lube! Minimum order is 10 jars to make it worthwhile for both parties.

Frontier's Anti-Rust & Patch Lube Update!

Just a small improvement in the lube department!

One of my guys on the forum mentioned that when he first got his jar of lube, some guys on the range wanted to try it out and made a real mess out of it, got sloppy and wasted a lot of lube.

I've updated the jars once more to an over sized jar which will allow for more room in the container. The old jars used to be filled to the top and when you'd dip a finger in, it could over flow a bit, making a mess and wasting lube.

No problems with the new jars guys! Plenty of room with no spill over.

Another update is how the lube is processed. Before everything was mixed in a paste/oil forum and blended together at high speed.

I am now using the double boiler method so everything is in an oil state and blended together. Once melted and blended, the lube is then put into the container and after it has cooled down over night, Its mixed by hand inside of the contents actual container. Its a much better process than I previously did which improves the product that much more. A couple extra steps, yes. But very important steps that gives you a better, smoother, consistent product you can rely on.

I have a BRAND NEW, never been shot, CVA Hawken, .54cal with 1:48 twist 28" barrel, 15/16th across the flats. I've done my usual bedding on the Tang, trigger plate and fore stock. Lock internals have been polished, along with the double set triggers. New Hickory ramrod installed, German silver front sight and an elevator style rear sight.

 You should easily be able to shoot dead on out to 150-170 yards with this elevator rear sight once you sight in at 100.

The wood has some crazy patterns as you can see! I refinished the stock with Laurel mountain forge Nut Brown and Truoil that's been buffed back to a semi gloss finish.

Barrel and tang have been slow rust browned.

Again, a brand new rifle, never loaded,  that was just stripped down and refinished for a MUCH better look and improved on where it makes a difference when the trigger is pulled.
