The hammer is down rests on frame with about .005 clearance between hammer and nipple. Note brass piece to hold in captive plunger and spring that keeps ramrod in place. The rear sight is driftable for windage. Hammer and trigger pins are held with hidden setscrews.

Good job, Bob. Maybe a simple design, but you have made it a classic,

Very clean! How does it shoot, and what's the caliber?

I had a brain freeze when posting and did three posts instead of one with the others added. In one post I stated .50 Cal. 30 grs of FFFG .495 round ball makes one large hole at 25 yds. It is a easy pistol to make and no I did not make drawings, but might make another this year.

Would like to see prints of this. Are you going to have them for sale?
