    Price on a Navy Arms Buffalo Hunter .58

    I've had my eye on a Buffalo Hunter .58 caliber rifle that is listed on gun broker. I like how it has a short barrel held on with a wedge pin similar to my Hawken rifles allowing the barrel to be easily taken off the stock for cleaning. I much prefer the looks of this Buffalo Hunter rifle over...

    Navy arms Buffalo hunter .58 carbine accurate

    I thought the Zouave style rifles were considered to be rifled muskets or a musket with shallow rifing for easy loading? Civil War era type military rifles and reproductions.

    Maine State Woods Walk Championship 2022

    I don't have a flintlock so would all 10 shots be with my cap lock Hawken or just 5 shots? I've got the Tomahawk Throwing down pretty good I've been practicing that.

    Navy arms Buffalo hunter .58 carbine accurate

    You think my Thompson Center Hawken with a 32 inch green mountain barrel is more accurate than a .58 cal rifled musket? I've never shot one of those .58 cal rifles before

    Traditions Fox River Fifty

    We took it to the range and my girlfriend shoots it quite well at 25 yards. I have 2 pound of pyrodex that I never use so I gave her that and put together a shooting box with accounterments. I was shooting my new green mountain barrel on my Thompson Center at the some time getting her...

    Navy arms Buffalo hunter .58 carbine accurate

    Considering getting a navy arms Buffalo hunter .58 with a 26 inch barrel. I'm not all that familiar with civil war replica rifled muskets but comparing it to my Thompson Center Hawken rifle what kind of accuracy can I expect with that barrel length shooting .58 cal round ball or mini balls? I...

    Traditions Fox River Fifty

    I found a used Traditions Fox River .50 cal percussion muzzleloader, single trigger 1:48 twist barrel. Very short small little rifle but looked practically unfired. Rifling was nice and sharp no pitting. Perfect little gun for my girlfriend she's small figured and my full size Thompson Center...

    Green mountain barrel made before 1993

    Interesting. When I get the chance to shoot my GM barrel I'll have to determine if using the scotch bright pad is needed. Since it's unfired I'm sure it will be loading pretty tight. Hopefully that barrel will last me a lifetime once I get it broken in.

    Green mountain barrel made before 1993

    I have a .50 caliber green mountain barrel that's unfired. I called the company and gave them the serial number to confirm what the twist rate is and they said it was made before 1993 and it's most likely 1:70 twist. I used to have a Renegade with 1:66 twist and it shot round ball very well so...

    NMLRA Postal match

    I registered for the NMLRA postal match and the targets consist of Crow 25 yards, deer 50 yards, fox 50 yards and a bear 100 yards. 5 shots per target off hand. I'm very comfortable shooting at 25-50 yards off hand all day long. I shot 45 points out of 50 on a 50 yard off hand target at a local...

    .50 vs .54 accuracy

    I'll double check the twist rate. If it is 1:72 it should do mighty fine with roundball

    .50 vs .54 accuracy

    Considering getting a .54 cal drop in barrel by green mountain 1:66 round ball twist. Just curious if there's is any significant accuracy differences between .50 and .54 sort of comparing apples to oranges here I suppose. I have two TC Hawken rifles one with .50 cal GMB 1:66 unfired and another...
