Re: Took my 1884 out for the first time

Using a pin punch is the correct way to re-install the ejector & block pin. This is the only difficult part to replace on the TD.

For reloading, I use Pyrodex BP powder substitute. Works great & is easy to clean up. There is no need to remove the Block to clean.

I also load smokeless powder rounds for the TD but most people are not comfortable using smokeless.
