1858 Springfield 58 cal Rebore by Bobby Hoyt

 Consignment sale

All Sales AS IS
 I've dubbed this rifle the "FrankenField"

This rifle was customized to be a shooter! Over all condition is in great shape. That's my opinion ,your mileage may differ!
Bore is clean rifling sharp 
Barrel was bedded at the breech as you can see in the pictures where Hoyt's stamped info is present.
Picture tag has all details
1858 barrel  I misread the last digit it's an 8 not a 3
1864 Lock with modified hammer face

A metal ram rod is included it is not an original-does not fit the ram rod channel.
This rifle was apart when it came to me. I cleaned up the steel & bore you may want to polish it that's up to you.
 The lock needs a bridal screw and the bridal has small cracks- it does not effect the function.
If I find screws & bridal before it sells I'll send them along.


Some areas require a muzzleloader to be shipped to a FFL
Payment money order or bank check

Shipping appx $65.00 depending on your location & final total cost

Another Ammo Act


Another Ammo Act

SCOPE tries to fulfill its purpose by keeping its members and the general public informed.  We’re trying, but given the proliferation of anti-2nd Amendment laws and the Left’s new focus on Ammo restrictions, one needs a scorecard to tell which Ammo Act is the Left’s ‘ammo law du jour’.

Always looking to muddy the waters, Democrat Senators Elizabeth Warren (Pocahantas) and Richard Blumenthal (the Viet Nam vet who wasn’t) have recently introduced Senate Bill S.3223; it’s yet another Ammo Act.   This iteration of Ammo legislation threatens to severely restrict bulk ammunition sales, potentially infringing upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners. It currently sits in the Senate’s Judiciary Committee.

Under this AMMO Act:

it would be unlawful for any person licensed under federal firearm regulations to transfer to an unlicensed individual more than 100 rounds of .50 caliber ammunition or more than 1,000 rounds of any other caliber of ammunition within a five-day period;

individuals wishing to purchase ammunition would be subject to the same rigorous background checks currently applied to firearm purchases;

it also mandates that all ammunition sales records must be retained by Federal Firearm License (FFL) holders for a minimum of two years.

It’s another backdoor attack on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

Some potential consequences of this legislation:

it will make it significantly more challenging for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment freedoms by making it more difficult to obtain the ammo needed for firearms and, thus, more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves;

the data collected under this act could be misused or mishandled, potentially violating the privacy rights of American citizens;

criminals will find ways to circumvent the AMMO Act’s restrictions, while law-abiding citizens will face unnecessary red tape when purchasing ammunition;

FFL record retention opens the door to invasion of privacy of law-abiding gun owners.  It raises concerns about government misuse of background check data;

due to ever more intrusive laws infringing on the 2nd Amendment, firearms owners are taking preventative action and buying in bulk.  The bulk sale limitation would make it more difficult for firearms owners to counteract present and future unconstitutional laws that take years to fight in courts;

Are such measures even necessary?  Do they address any of the underlying issues, such as mental health, related to gun violence?  Where are the studies that back up the effectiveness of this proposal?

    It is crucial for concerned citizens to stay informed, engage in respectful dialogue, and advocate for their constitutional rights. Now, more than ever, it is vital for Americans to engage in a thoughtful and informed discussion about the future of our Second Amendment rights and navigate the complex challenges surrounding gun ownership, public safety, and individual liberties in the United States.

    Hand Crafted Leather-Bone-Hair Bags for the Rendezvous

     Featured here is a few of the bags I make to carry your Modern or Primitive possibles in.

    These come with a nice size English flint and steel striker.

    The bag with the bells-the bells kept falling off-so if I remember I throw them in the bag for you to fool with.

    Each bag has a thin adjustable shoulder strap-IMO the thing strap hold onto the top of your shoulder better than a wide one. Again that's my opinion your mileage may differ

    Prices range from 40$ to over 100$

    Avg size is 7x7"  Larger bags are 11-12" appx I forget

    Price includes shipping.
