Need an antique muzzleloader expert

Recommended Posts

I picked up yesterday a percussion heavy barreled chunk Gun made by Baker in London. It has a tang sight and double set triggers and I have a severe itch to shoot it. I am going to a friend that is a gunsmith later today to find what caliber it is and get a clean bill of health. Anyone want to show a black powder noobie the ropes and actually shoot it. I am now starting some research and trying to date it but from its construction I am guessing 1830s or 40s. I have no clue why I had to buy the thing other than it is a cannon with a stock

Come for a visit I have everything you need to make it go BANG!  And I have a friend who shoots one-hole groups with his!
