      Left Hand Percussion .54.Bbl. shortened to 25", refinished
      metal to age, thinned stock, removed crescent & cheekpiece, replaced with a leather lace-on
      butt cup. Browned bbl., made a short plains rifle; article in Muzzle Blasts re: period short bbl. Plains Rifles,
      they printed my letter describing alterations.Don't like the heavy long, Lyman bbl.
      Only shot once, will rely on reports these rifles are fine shooters.

        Wow. Must be a beauty, love to see a photo of it. Yes they are indeed fine shooters. I kinda like long barrels, had a '53 Enfield with a 39" barrel now I'm shooting a Zouave only a 32" on that. Would like to hear how your's shoots. Cheers

      Lyman54, I assume you have a Lyman.54 cal. Plains Rifle, in Flint or Percussion?

        Wish I could post photos, but literally don't know how, don't have digital camera or cell phone, and use library computer! Must be the reason I like old-type guns, I'm so behind the times! I just know the Lymans have great reputation, from all I've read. Recently got a 1989 Uberti Plains Rifle which is more authentic, won't shorten the bbl. on that! We couldn't ask for better neighbors that the Canadians!

        And I'm proud to live next to the USA. Been to many States and was treated great. My Dad was born in Vermont and I love it there. I got my 1st computer in 2007 can't do much with it same as my smart phone, just use it as a phone but it saves me a lot of money. I live where the signal is terrible though, in the boonies. Google J8H 3W8 that's the postal code. What State are you in?

    Retired from trucking industry. I live in the country 20 min. from nearest town. Have been a Civil War buff since I was a kid, perhaps that's why I am so interested in muzzleloaders. Widowed, so no one to tell me I can't buy them. I can go broke without being hassled.
