Received in good condition, fun to play with, but not particularly useful. With recommended load took out a fired at wood pile; balls bounced off and hit me in leg, broke out laughing. Next tried bird shot, volume to volume about 1/3 oz shot; patterned about 2 1/2 ft at distance of 10 ft but no energy.
Best practical use for it is training dog to sound of gun fire or chasing squirrels off bird feeder. fun to shoot though. Another notation also is took parts off my other 1851 navy and they all fit right on the frame.
