Hurry is for those not yet retired. Or, for those retired a long time. Time - a thing running out.
I don't worry about time. In my opinion there are a zillion bullets flying around my head. One of these days one will connect when it's my time.
I have friends, school mates and relatives that died in their thirties and forties from heart attacks or other ailments.
In my life I don't worry about that random bullet but try to focus on the ones aimed at me. Diet, exercise and visits to the DR for semi-annual checkups.
If something isn't right, get it checked out, and stay the hell off the internet when trying to diagnose yourself and the issues your experiencing. My wife almost went insane trying to diagnose herself on WebMD. Thought she was gonna die because of some specks on a lung X Ray. After a year of anguish and finally a visit to a specialist she was told her entire issue was stress. The specks in her lungs were normal for every person sitting in his waiting room that day. 5 years ago
Don't fall into the trap of internet diagnosing.
All of those parts you mentioned are extremely air soluble.
“Air soluble “. I like that.
Welp, the weather has temporarily brought me to a screeching halt on this project. I am no hurry and I need to drill the stock for the tenon pins then I can start putting the finish on the barrel and the stock. But I need warm weather again before this can happen. Looks like we sort of slid back to good ol' March weather for a few days.
Nice to see something that has nothing to do with the Coronavirus. Does it?
It has absolutely nothing to do with it. It’s normalcy; just a guy putting together a cool old gun and enjoying the work.

I'd like to build a BP pistol someday.
Okay, so this got put on the back burner for a few days but I got back on it today for a couple of hours. I filed and installed the tenons and the sights. That was a good 2 1/2 hours, at least. Then I decided to do one last dry fit to check everything before I start doing the finish on the barrel and the stock. The only thing left to do before the finish work is to the drill the stock and barrel tenons. Might do that tomorrow, might not. I'll see how it's going.
Lousy pics, but here's the rifle, assembled, pre-stain and barrel finish. Everything lines up well; the wood to brass fit is darn good!
Did you make the custom spacer, like you talked about? Maybe I missed it.
