Carbines sent off for work
Sent 1859 Sharps off today to Charlie Hahn to have the breech block made solid, chamber sleeve o-ring modification, chamber set up for using cardboard tubes, and taller front sight. Also sent Smith carbine off to Robert Hoyt for a reline, and standardize it to shoot .515. While waiting, I need to glassbed the 1863 Type II and make a couple minor adjustments to a couple of locks. If all goes according to plan, I'll spend March casting bullets for the season, and April sighting in 3 muskets and 2 carbines.
