Finish Kit

Finish Kit

The above products can be purchased together as a kit or individually. The stain is a non-grain raising type stain with a golden, reddish brown color specially blended for us to duplicate the color on many old guns. The finish is an oil finish that has received much praise from everyone who has tried it. The browning solution is the best we've ever used. There is enough material in each can to do at least two or three guns. Shipped via UPS only.

"White Lightnin'" Touch Hole Liners

White Lightnin'
(left photo is a cutaway view of the White Lightin' Touch Hole for illustrative purposes only!)

If you haven't tried this new touch-hole you are in for a treat. We are confident this touch-hole will improve your ignition time by 100%. A quick lock that produces a good shower of sparks is important, but even more important is how quickly the flash is transferred to the main charge. Our touch-hole, with its large cone brings the main charge to within a few thousandths of an inch of the pan flash for a virtual instant ignition. The following letter is typical of the many responses we've had to this product.

"They work great! My .40 was a little pokey, but now it goes off like a caplock. Please send me a half dozen more of the liners. I had a gunsmith put the liners in for me. He was so impressed he asked me to order two for him."

Available in two sizes:
3/8" x 32 for 1 1/16" or larger barrels #THL-01
5/16" x 32 for 7/8" & 1" barrels #THL-02
1/4" x 32 for 7/8" and smaller barrels #THL-03

We also have drill and tap sets for these:
3/8" x 32 tap and Q drill #TAP-1
5/16" x 32 tap and I drill #TAP-2
1/4" x 32 tap and 4 drill #TAP-3

Accralube & Accragard


Accralube is an extremely pure, high-grade oil that pours freely at -50°F and is nongumming at high temperatures. It resists displacement from high pressure on contact surfaces such as sear and mainspring engagements and tumbler contact areas. In other words, this is a great oil that will keep your lock working freely and smoothly in all weather. Accragard is absolutely the best bore protector we have ever tried. With Accragard in your barrel you can forget about any rust.

Mainspring Vise

The mainsprings for the large and small Siler locks can be removed/installed with pliers. That, however, is not the case with our other springs. Those MUST be removed/installed with a good quality mainspring vise. To use, apply the vise as shown and tighten just enough to allow the spring to slip in or out of the lock. #MSV

Fancy English Fowler Parts

As an option for our English Fowler rifle kit, we offer a sculpted sideplate and thumb piece (wrist inlay). Available in Brass, Steel, or Sterling Silver; and as a set or individually. As these parts are investment cast, they are very smooth and require very little polishing. Designed by Bob Harn, these offer a quick way to dress up our English Fowler kit or your own custom gun.
