Here's a progress report on building Track of the Wolf's Bucks County flintlock rifle kit. In this update I'll move the barrel back in it's channel so the future position of the touch hole lines up properly with the priming pan. Then I'll fit the breech plug and tang to the barrel.

thanks for the update, glad to see you decided to continue posting vids.


question though, how difficult is it to clean that lipstick out of the wood when you go to stain and seal it?

You're doing a nice job with less than ideal tools in some steps. It shows that someone with the drive to get the job done can do so without a fully equipped CNC machine shop. A simple fact that seems to be lost on a lot of folks these days.

I would suggest that you invest in a few of the smaller size wood chisels for the next time around. The added stiffness of the chisel will be a HUGE upgrade over that Xacto handle and flexy chisel blade.

BCRider, I have some good German wood chisels. You'll see me using a 4mm chisel in the next video. But for some things I prefer the Xacto blades
