Nearly the same as lyman plains rifle (not great plains). Both made by Investarm, main difference is patchbox design and engraving on the lockplate. 28 in. 15/16 1-48 twist barrel. Will shoot patched RB or conicals with good accuracy if you load properly.

I have a lyman, a longtime friend has the cabelas, both are reliable good shooters.

P.S. GM and/or TC barrels can be fitted to the stock assy

If you don't want it, I'll take it in a minute.. I have one in .50 perc. It is very acurate and reliable.

I've had a Cabelas Hawkin .50 flintlock for about 6 years now. I bought when I was just getting into muzzleloading and have been more than happy. I was a bit skeptical at first given that word "Cabelas" is stamped on the barrel, but the gun has been very accurate and held up well. I've taken 8 or 9 deer with it and have greatly enjoyed shooting it for fun.
