Huntsman 45 Cal 1972 model info needed
I just recently bought the Huntsman 45cal ML from an Estate auction. I paid $150, not certain if this was a deal, reasonable purchase or I over paid.
Its a nice looking ML, screw in breach plug, #11 nipple.
The gun needs a good cleaning. I haven't been able to get the breach plug out yet. I have looked and the company is no longer in business.
1. Breach plug removal tool. I saw a post on here for a the 50 cal and a diagram. Is a breach plug tool sold, or do I have to have one made?
2. Manual available?
3. Loose powder or Pellets, does it really matter? I like the pellets due to the convenience of them
4. Conical or Ball. I would like to try both for practice/sighting in. I have good shooting fundamental skills (learned them in the army (not a sniper though)). I understand I need to learn how my gun shoots. I own a 10ga sxs ML, and have used it for Dove, Ducks, & Turkey
5. Max effective distance with a safe powder charge? 100-150+/- yds.
6. Scope mounting?
Any info would be appreciated. I would like to use it this season. Our ML comes in 9/30-10/12 & 11/9-11/22 I hunt 2 different zones close to me.
I will post some pictures.
