Just gifted to me by my wife's uncle. Danzig M1809 / 20 Musket. I am more of a contemporary black guns / SBR kind of guy, but this thing is cool and I wish it could tell me where it's been!
The barrel is corked. Anyone have advice on how and whether to remove it? I don't plan on shooting it, but it seems counterintuitive to have a non readily functional gun.

Put it in a vice, stand off to the side of the muzzle as if it’s still loaded (just in case) and see if a ball puller will work.

Ball puller is basically a pointy screw on a long rod. Lead ball was soft so the screw is able to sink into it with some manual pressure and then it pulls the ball out when you extract the puller rod.

Browning a5 magnum aesthetically in horrible shape. But for $149 I had to take it home. Bore is actually rust free and so is the action. It's seen alot of use its not just rust from being in a safe. The checkering is worn smooth on the forend from use. Pix are after the first pass with wd40 and some bronze brushes to remove what I could of the surface rust. It's missing 3 of the friction pieces which I can order from Brownell but for now it can be set up to cycle 2 3/4 high brass. To cycle 3 inch loads I'll have to order the ring set. I may try my hand at re bluing......or just leave it. Either way......she'll never be pretty......but I got a functioning a5 magnum for $149.

edit. Just left the club it cycles perfect

Been looking for one of these for awhile. KTP had what I thought was a good price: $910 and receive a $100 KTP gift card with purchase. First time buying a firearm out of state and to my surprise I received another gift card more than covering the tax I paid. I’ll spend the gift cards eventually so it turns into an $800-ish purchase. I used the online portal for registration, although I wonder if you’d get harassed for not doing it?

Was planning on a red dot but the fiber optic sights are really nice!026D4DAC-3229-4CC9-B89E-4934488B88EC.jpeg

A little town full of cows off of 24
picked up this 1920 production 1903 Mark 1. Nice straight wrist stock, a Pederson Cut in the receiver and a nice and shiny 1944 High Standard barrel. It even came with an early 1900's computer for a rear sight!

Put the new recoil spring and rings in the gun today. On the 3 inch setting it cycled 3 inch duck loads and 3 inch buck no problem. Also put some high brass 1 1/4 ounce game loads through it and even woth the rings set on 3 inch loads it Cy led them fine. Nice and smooth. I compared the old bronze rings with the new ones and you can tell the old ones were worn down just by looking at them didn't even need to use my calipers to measure lol

Itll be a fun winter project to try to re blue and refinish the wood.

FK Brno. 7.5mm and 10mm rounds pictured (comes with two barrels). Bought it around March 2022. Not sure there are too too many of these in the peoples Republic of Massachusetts. I have only fired 10mm and .40 out of it (it is both my only 10mm and my only .40) because the only range I go to won't let you fire rifle calibers. The 10mm feels like 9mm coming out of this beast.
