    For shooters not familiar with it, this is a fair selection of guns for the NMLRA's any pistol matches. There are other matches that require the use of period-style guns that are run by the NMLRA, as well as N-SSA and MLAIC matches.

    The top right one has me thinking about making a BP upper for the Ruger MkII.
    I'm thinking a CZ2 upper, a CZ82 upper, and maybe a Taurus PT99 upper.

    It's very easy to do a 1911. You can use the hammer on the 1911. Just
    remove the barrel and clip. Muzzleloading barrel is held on with a screw going
    up in the magazine well to a lug welded onto the barrel. You can change back
    to fire 45 acp very easy. Some use this system.

    The M1911 has a magazine, not a clip.

    Actually, it is a Detachable Box Magazine...as covered in the Patent of James Paris Lee.

    But I hate to see this sort of Thread Drift, even when I am contributing to it!

    Lol...


    These 'Competition Pistols' are entirely new to me.


    What are the usual Calibers?

    And, what sort of Target distances are the Competitions they would be used in?

    The pistol matches at Friendship are 25, 50, 100 yds. Probably the most
    used caliber is 36. Seems like new shooters start out with 45's and as we get
    older the caliber comes down. I only shoot 32's now. Been thinking about a
    .22 barrel for my pistol tho. One nice thing you keep the same gun and just
    change barrels. Match barrels go for 35-60 dollars. I'm talking DeHass, Ed Rayle. Green Mt. If I can find the wife's 100 yd target I will post it. All 10
    shots were in a 10 inch group. This one hand un-surported. Lots of FUN

    those do not look like muzzle loaders at all, it's like an autoloader and a muzzleloader had a baby! it looks crazy but i like it!

    It's not currently in production, but the pistol below was produced here in the UK by gunsmith and engineer Alan Westlake..... very much the same idea. He also produces a simpler version.

    If you mean on the 1911, they work just fine. the triggers are not touched.

    no, I understand how a 1911 works, but can't see the mechanism on the scratch built ones...I'd like to try to build one of my own.

    Those are not scratch built ones. They are just a stock 1911 with the
    muzzleloading barrel installed. Very simple.

    Where does one purchase a barrel like that to fit on a 1911?

    Oh, OK, I'm a little slow sometimes. Well you know I have never seen the
    inside of the triggers on any of mine. They are sealed. They never need any
    attentition of any kind. You just load and shoot them. Wipe out the barrel
    with water when your done, then a WD-40 patch and your done.
