    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?
