Thanks for the link, Gary

Two things about the thread.

1. Good comprehensive photos

2. I like the fact that he showed the clamping techniques.

You simply can't have too many clamps.

I cannot criticize the skill of the restore at all. Well done.
Except, as a Rev. War reenactor, as I am, I'm sure you know if that rifle does date to that period it was not originall a percussion. In fact, the lock is obviously a conversion from flint. I do wish you had reconverted back to the original flint.
BTW, the bore job is beautiful.
