Thank you pwm for the nomenclature. Now I know I have a buechsflinte. How do you say "percussion" in German?

Carl I measure about one turn in 27" so I think the rifle will do well with Minies. I don't think I will load a roundball in the smoothbore, but if I do would a .56 be about right if a greased linen patch is used?

Hal, you're correct that 1:27 is too fast for a RB. Minie it is!

.56 RB should work for the smoothbore. Just select the right thickness of patch to give a snug fit without requiring a posthole digger to seat the round.

OK a perkussionszĂĽndung buechsflinte it is!

Off the muzzleloading bbs I read that MCM lube from North East Trading works great on Minie bullets and I will try that. What is the recommended lube for patches for the roundball?
How do Minies perform if loaded unpatched in a smoothbore? And will 28 ga shotcups slide down a .58 barrel?

wow! thanks for the German lesson....i have a flintendrilling [a triple barrel 12 gauge] and didn't know what to call it...jokingly it was called a 'trilling'; wish i had a vierling, should have gotten one years ago when they were more reasonably priced!

Hal,
How much does the piece weigh?
I just like the way the germans manage to put multiple barrels on things and keep the pounds down.

usually quite similar to a good side by side 7.5 to 8.5 pounds; each barrel can be thinned considerably past the chamber, as they reinforce one another giving more than enough rigidity, so aren't usually excessively heavy. some lightweight 'dural' drillings barely weigh over 6 pounds.

Will try and remember to weigh when I get it back together. Would you guess these early percussion guns used wood or metal ramrods?
