I think it's looking really good Dan!  :hairy

I've still yet to start my pistol project... Had a couple other projects to take care of (refinished a couple rifle stocks), so the pistol project is getting closer.  :shake

After finishing inletting the caplock, I discovered the rotation of the lock was wrong ( around the axis of the drum)and the hammer would not reach the nipple.( wasnt even close) I chose not to do what was neccessary to put a bandaid on this. Instead, I knew that the flint and cap lock plate was the same for the Pedersoli lock I was useing. So, I purchased a new lock and will build it as a flintlock. Lesson learned.! Also,my furlough from work ended so I havent had as much time to work on it.
Anyways, this is where its at, the lock inlet and simple trigger inlet. More to come

That had to be frustrating, what was the option for the fix if it was to remain a capper?

Dan, sorry to hear you ran into that trouble. Now that you're a talking flintlock pistol - I just might have to dig into that pistol stock blank and get that flintlock pistol started (even though I probably won't be able to hit squat with it, but who knows - a'little (lot's of a'little) practice,,, why I might just surprise myself??? Good luck my friend on getting that pistol squared away - I know you can do it.  :hairy :yessir:

Thanks Joe, I was more concerned about the tail of plate being on centerline of wrist and front lock plate bolt hole being in the web that I never pd attention to the hammer throw vs nipple.  :)

Can you set the tang and barrel back some to alleviate the problem?  I guess that could be considered a Band-Aid, or just fixing an unforeseen problem....

Not really because its still a rotation problem plus barrel pins are in place already. More work than its worth plus I like flinters better anyways.
