took my first muzzle stuffer out...

...for the first time today. I got it a couple weekends ago at my local gunshow. it's a 54cal Connecticut Valley Arms carbine. it was severely rusted(by centerfire standards) and I was able to talk them down to $90 out the door. it took a great deal to get it shooting. the nipple was rusted shut and there wasn't enough powder making it to the Frisson (or whatever you call the charging area on a cap and ball muzzle loader) so I had to use a sewing needle to clear the nipple and dump enough powder into the frisson to get it to go off but after that the old girl ran like clock work. maybe I'll get a chance to see what she does to a deer this weekend.
