The level of craftsmanship of that piece looks suberb.
From your experience shooting it, are there any weak points in its design?
It looks like it has a custom nipple. Did you order many replacements?
Does the plunger bolt get covered with much fouling to where it interferes with its operation?
Does the action need to be broken down for a thorough cleaning after each shooting session?

No weak points I;ve found, stainless striker rod does Not get fouled. The
nipple and stainless breach plug are one unit. You can order extra's. I think
they are 9.00. It comes out easy. Cleaning is a snap. Just wipe out the barrel
and back area with a Q-tip and your done.!! Yazel is about 85 years old.
He told me he is going to keep on making them. The whole thing is steel.
He can make anything. This one was made to my specs. Cost you say?
Well really very cheap. Last year they were 275.00. He raised them to 340
and may have to go a little higher. The "Champion" rear sight is around 100
dollars alone. Look them up. I think these are really a steel at these prices.
Trigger is fully adjustable. If you want you can take down the gun with
removing only one screw. Bad thing, he doesn't make too many in a year.
Barrels are "Rayel" Custom This .36 has a 1-16 twist cut rifleing . Grooves .010 deep
