    Powder flask, bullet mold and presentation case.......looks to be some leftovers someone threw together. Italian or Spanish reproduction stuff.....

    What caliber are the balls and mold? If you want to part with it, IM me.

    All I see, online, have a inlet lock. Having a surface mount lock sorta leans toward cut-rate workmanship. IMHO

    I have to agree that what I see here is rather marginal in quality. All indications are of cheap Spanish-Italian manufacture. I've messed around with stuff like this for over 30 years now, but all of my exposure and experience has been with high quality craftsmen who dovetail the joints and hand forge/cast the hardware.

    Teach and tennmike know some of these same guys I'm talking about, and if you are interested in high-end contemporary longrifles and associated gear such as what is featured here, then consider coming up to Lexington, Kentucky to the annual Contemporary Longrifle Association Show in mid-August.
