Sight from Butches boars tusk is in and the gun is done. Drilled and tapped the touch hole liner today then ran out in 100 degree burning sun and shot it for the first time @ 30yards.



I will post pictures of the finished gun in a few days once I get it sealed and back together.

Beautiful! It looks like it's ready to go play.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?
