    Graf & Sons has ammo for a decent price, although I haven't used that brand. https://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog...categoryId/239 $25 seems to be the best price I see. Norma is too proud of their product at $55. Gun shows might be an alternative, but 7.7 Jap has been getting hard to come by.

    I cant get a very good picture of the mum on the model 99 with my crappy camera. After viewing pics on line i will say that after blasting it and the etching caused by the parkerizing, i would correct myself to say maybe 40 to 50 percent. Its going to stay in a gun cabinet with the other ones as soon as i can find one, and will probably never be shot, so thats all good. Roger

    No problem. Just don't see one with an intact mum too often.

    I know what you mean. Im not much on these rifles. After seeing the mums on the net of what i would consider new rifles, i was very impressed. Im not a collector, but would love to have one in new condition. Roger.

    This 54 cal Spanish CVA Black Powder rifle was the hardest to get into shooting condition. It was missing the drum and had about 3 inches of what i would call concrete in the breech area of the barrel. Lots of bore cleaner and a cloths hanger finally got it cleaned. Thanks to a couple of members here, i was able to get a replacement drum and alignment jig. I parkerized it grey to hide rust pitting areas and added a red dot to replace a very bad shape Tabsco that was on it. S5000223.JPG

    Roger you did a great job on cleaning it up.

    First two questions
    1 Did CVA/Dixie sell that or one like it as the Bobcat?
    2 Are the lock and hammer Case hardened?
    Must say that version of the 54 with the half stock an no pistol grip looks best.
    Plain and clean lines
    I wanted one like that with a maple wood stock and Ashe ram rod.
