A passion and way of life !!

My main concern is I hear they are a pain to clean.
They will require your attention especially if you are shooting BP or Pyrodex. When and if you get commited to this "Great Adventure", it really doesn't matter. Traditionalists are basically Old-School "thinkers" that appreciate the rich history and romance of these SideCockers. ...

Yes, they require more attention than breech loaders and someone recently posted that the In-Lines were easier to clean. I find that Traditions are easier to clean; it's just that the In-Lines are more accessible. ...

Heck, I even enjoy cleaning my SideLocks and everything else that is associated with them, more than anything else. ....

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
