Feeling good today.........
I got a message on facebook from a guy in the US asking my opinion on Derbyshire Arms .

"Several of us were considering having Derbyshire do a group order of some Brown Bess muskets. I have had great difficulty getting timely responses from them. If I could ask, have you dealt with them before your current order you commented on? If so, what has been your experience? Thanks for any input."

I was able to tell him what a bunch of lying, cheating, unprofessional and unreliable twats they are.

"Thanks for your input. I will defer from dealing with them." was the reply.

So that's about £2500 worth of crap they won't sell to anyone...............Boy do I feel better :bigsmile:

That was a bit of mild criticism ...wasn't it? At least you didn't call them bastards or shitheads. We're proud of you for using such restraint.

First job done. I checked the hole dimensions and they were about 3.5 - 4 mm ±ish! I bought a 4mm metric tap and tapped them all this afternoon. As you can see, I now have properly threaded holes that can take proper threaded bolts. It's a start. :razz:

Well its a start pity the rest of the lock is crap material and by adding the new screws you have doubled the value

Things are on the right track now. Good to see it being rebuilt.
