Huntsman getting choked
« on: December 28, 2020, 08:39:57 PM »
I am sending my huntsman to get a true choke thread cut. With a choke and TSS it should make a good 40+ yard turkey gun.

Sweet rig.  Miss my 45.  Will be waiting for pattern pics.

I got a call from them yesterday. Should be ready Friday which means I should have it next week.

I don't have the .45 but I have the .58, 28" 45-70 and .44 magnum in that series aside from the 12 gauge.

Wish I had had more sense when I had mine.  I could not get a good load out of it, mostly because I was young and dumb.  Did not ask the right people and finally sold it.

Those .45 Huntsman guns really liked round balls. Most of the guys I know that used them very much used a patched ball over 70grs FFG.

Well I finally got it back. They did a great job. Probably going to shoot it Saturday. I am hoping the POI is on the money. If not I will install sights on it.

I forgot to swab it with bore butter before shooting it. That evens out the pattern. It is certainly on the right track though.
