    Factory built vs kit build value

    Value wise the kit guns from TC don’t normally bring quite the money that the factory guns do. There may or may not be a difference in quality as that is mostly determined by the assembler. Two of the major considerations to me when determining what i consider the quality of a gun is accuracy...

    My Kibler SMR is shipping

    When did Jim start rifling his own barrels? I thought he was using Rice barrels. Greg

    Good price for a Pedersoli?

    I would think $600 would not be out of line. Greg

    Richland Arms "michigan"

    I have shot many deer with any of my .45’s. Round ball, maxi ball, or maxi hunter. Hit them in the vitals and they work as well as my .50’s. I use 60-80 grains of fff depending on the rifle and the projectile being used. Greg

    SOLD Pedersoli Flintlock Frontier Rifle .50 Cal

    I see this one appears to have a blued barrel. My Blue Ridge has a blues barrel and my Frontier has a brown barrel. Yes, besides that they are built the same. I was just curious as this is advertised as a Frontier. Greg

    Percussion or Flintlock?

    I guess I shot percussion guns for 35+ years and then decided to try a flintlock. I enjoy shooting both but the flint is just more challenging and for me......more fun. Greg

    Hatfield 50... should I buy it?

    I own two early Hatfield percussion guns. Also own a Pedersoli flintlock as well as a percussion. I will agree there is very little historically correct about them but if that doesn’t matter to you, The Hatfields that I own are two of my favorite black powder guns for one simple...
  12. Critter Getter


    I would guess I have 2000-2500 but I bought them slowly over time after the last shortage. Now I shoot more flintlocks than percussion so guessing at 62 years of age I might be set for the rest of my life. I have seen panic buying and hoarding over the years but this is maybe the most crazed I...

    Scammers on Face book groups

    I belong to some flyfishing groups on FB and that sounds like the same scammers that visit those pages as well. Scammers know no boundaries! Greg

    Richland Arms .54

    Yes your line of thinking is good. Should be able to start there and find an acceptable load. Should be a good deer sized thumper! Greg 😀

    Richland Arms .54

    I have a .50 Richland Arms. Mine was made by Investarms ( the same company that made Lyman for many years ). I don’t know for sure but think they are one in 48” twist. I would guess if you found a Hawken style stock for a Lyman or those produced for Cabela’s/Bass Pro that they would work with...

    .45 T/C Seneca with QLA

    I had a .50 Hawken with QLA........shot terrible and I solved my problem by getting rid of the rifle. Only TC I ever owned that was a poor shooter. Never seen or heard of a Seneca with QLA.........Greg

    What's the one muzzleloader you regret parting with most?

    I put together my second muzzleloader, a .45 TC Cherokee kit. Spent 40 hours on that little rifle. Shot a couple of deer and maybe a coyote with it and then sold it to my best friend cheap just so he would get into black powder. That was back in the 1980’s. He shot it for awhile and then went...

    Covered Wooden Bridge

    I believe that burning covered bridges has been a thing for many years but for the life of me I don’t know why. Greg
